About Coach

Started CrossFit with the hopes of getting in better shape. Grew up playing baseball and Soccer. Found strength training in high school and fell in love with the gym, took a dip into bodybuilding through college but never competitively. Spent many of my post-college years traveling and ignoring my physical health. When I found CrossFit I had no idea I would fall in love with it. After a year of hard training, I became a coach and the rest is history. I love my CrossFit Sandy Family!

Turning Point

My turning point is a pretty dark story. I was 27 years old, traveling full time for work, drinking myself to death on the weekends, had many toxic friendships and just all around very unhappy with my life. After numerous failed attempts to make the best out of my situation. I decided to do a full shuffle - find a new job, new house, and get back into shape (begin CrossFit). I am now married to a woman I met at CrossFit Sandy, about to have my first child, working at a job that I love and I'm in the best shape of my adult life. CrossFit gave me most of what I am grateful for today.
