I started so far away from where I am now, but I think thats just a testament to what incorporating CrossFit into your life can do for you. I played a lot of sports in school. I was always pretty average, but my small size kept me from really excelling at sports like Football. After high school I got into rock climbing and actually got very well known in the sport. I began getting sponsors and really started to make a name for myself. One Christmas, my lovely wife Amanda gave me a month pass to Kingman CrossFit. I was very scared that CrossFit would hurt my climbing abilities, but knew I could use the cross training. After I finished my first workout, I knew I was hooked. I began spending more time at the gym, more time working on weaknesses and really fell in love with the community. After a few years at the gym I was asked to become a coach to help out around the gym and once that happened I knew I had found my calling in life. In 2020, during a whirlwind of a year, I was approached with the opportunity to become part owner of Kingman CrossFit, and it’s something I knew I couldn’t pass up. If anyone would have asked me 10 years ago if I would be a coach and owner of Kingman CrossFit, I would have told them they were crazy, but I’ll tell you what…. THIS is where I’m meant to be, these are the people I want to be surrounded by and this is where WE are at our best. I'm so incredibly lucky to call this gym and community my home.
I remember watching my grandfather suffer a life ending heart attack at a pretty young age. I didn’t know it then, but I now know that there is a long history of diabetes, heart disease and obesity in my family, with a majority of their illnesses being treatable with physical activity and diet changes. I know those cards are stacked up against me, but I plan on doing everything possible to continue to not only live a healthy life for myself and my wife, but to show others that they too can live long, healthy lives as well.
I’m so passionate about coaching members that are goal driven! Setting goals, following plans and achieving them are some of the most fulfilling things we can do. I love seeing member’s faces after they get their first pull-up, beat an old workout time, or show me a pair of pants they used to wear that are too big for them now. I personally have fulfilled a lot of my goals in strength sports, more specifically Olympic weightlifting, so if you’re looking to gain strength, achieve a new athletic goal or just gain some endurance to get back into hiking, I’M YOUR GUY!
