About Coach

Growing up I was always very active. I played many sports throughout my life. I played pop Warner football from the age of 7, up to my sophomore year in high school. I played basketball for years and ran track and cross country in high school. I excelled at running and was team captain for my cross country team. I received all-league awards for both sports and also set lifetime personal records for my mile at 4:46, and posted a 16:49 5k in cross country. During all of that training, I noticed my coach’s attention to detail. It is something that has stayed with me ever since, and something that I take pride in when working with clients.

Turning Point

I’ve always had a competitive drive, especially when I was younger and was always active in sports. Once that phase in my life passed, I still had that hunger and drive but no outlet. After a year of college, I had become complacent and struggled to maintain any level of discipline when it came to my physical health. One night after class, I stumbled upon one of the many CrossFit documentaries out there. At that moment I was hooked! I knew I had to try it and within a few weeks, I came across North Rim. I had found a perfect outlet for my competitive drive. I was a member for about 2 years until I soon transitioned into a full-time coaching position. I thought I was finding a gym to get back into shape, but little did I know that I would be stumbling upon my passion!

Motivation & Passion

My main drive and motivation as a coach are to see people of all walks of life reach their potential. I strongly believe that exercise and health have many parallels to life outside of the gym. Once I decided to make exercise and my physical well-being a priority, many other aspects of my life changed as well. I became more disciplined, confident, patient, goal-oriented, outgoing, and driven. I want to help others reach their physical goals because I know the impact that reaching them can have on their life.
