Certifications: CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

“I grew up loving anything to do with fitness. Early on I found myself engulfed in any sport that involved an ounce of competition that somehow lead to joining the United States Marine Corps. After the Marines, I got into Spartan Races for a few years, then it happened. I moved to a small town in Georgia and had to make a decision between two fitness establishments: Jazzercise or Crossfit. It may have been one of the toughest decisions of my life but, Crossfit it was.

Honestly, being part of a fitness community has transcended all areas of my life from getting married to Jenna, learning to be a dad to Piper Gray, being a full-time Pastor at Multiply Church, or finishing my PhD, the list goes on and on. It’s not a list of boastful accolades, but a list of commitment, dedication, and consistency, all of which Crossfit aided.

Now, Crossfit isn’t about me hitting PRs or outworking others in the room. Crossfit is about being the best version of myself, cheering on my wife, Jenna, and encouraging other members to keep grinding as the step out of their comfort zone. It’s about the smiles, the high fives, and the family that’s created all through Crossfit.”
