Here is his story:
What do you do outside of CrossFit?
I am a Regional Sales Director for an Insurance company that is based in Wisconsin. I manage sales and distribution for 4 of our western states. So if you don’t see me in the gym, I’m probably traveling for work. I do my best to hit other gyms while on the road but hotel WODs are a regular.
What is something about you that would surprise us?
I moved to Arizona 12 years ago not knowing anyone and never even having set foot in the state prior to coming out to find an apartment.
What do you enjoy?
My wife Carrie and I love to hike, travel and explore everything this world has to offer! We are also sports fanatics and since I grew up in Ohio, I’m die hard Indians, Cavs, Browns and Buckeyes!
Why do you CrossFit?
I found CrossFit in 2009 and continue to enjoy it today because I’m incredibly competitive. It is always challenging me and never gets boring... #globogymsucks 😉
Since starting, I coached CrossFit for 2 years at Gilbert CrossFit before moving to Central PHX as well as been a member of several other gyms in the area. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone at Chuckwalla. It’s been great so far!
What is your favorite CrossFit lift/workout?
Helen is the first workout that I ever did.. got beat by two 60+ members! I had to do strict pull-ups because I didn’t know how to kip.
Now though I love anything with cleans and a WOD where we are simply doing work!
