I was first introduced to CrossFit in early 2015 when a box opened down the street where I was living in Florida. Before CrossFit and despite a fairly athletic background in high school and college, I was not in very good shape. But through my training in CrossFit, I was able to gain endurance and strength but more importantly confidence and mental toughness. I love the community aspect of CrossFit as much as the competitive spirit that it can imbue. Since beginning, I have enjoyed competing for fun in many local competitions and have run multiple races of varying lengths including four Half-Marathons and about to do my first Obstacle Race!!
I was a Naval Officer for 10 years and never lost my passion to lead and teach so in early 2017, I decided to combine this desire and love of CrossFit into an opportunity to coach others. And in realizing the role nutrition played in my own fitness and performance, 2018 was the year I decided to pursue my Certfication as a Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition. Now I am lucky enough to put what I have learned into practice as the Nutrition Coach for South Cobb!!
