I started CrossFit in 2013 here at CrossFit Barbending. After 20 years of globo-gyms, I needed a change and decided to try CrossFit and I was hooked instantly. As a lifelong athlete playing baseball and ice hockey, I needed something to keep me in shape. As a law enforcement officer on a maritime unit, functional fitness helps me carry out my daily duties of boarding ships at sea and helps me keep up with my toddler at home. After several years of doing CrossFit, I decided to become a coach and help others in their fitness journey.
