I retired from the United States Navy in 2021 after 25 years of service. Growing up I always played sports. Basketball and Football were my main sports and I continued to play recreationally while I was in the Navy. I always loved the team camaraderie of sports as well as the military. When my son was playing football I began coaching and I realized how much I loved coaching. When I was stationed in Virginia Beach I was introduced to CrossFit and fell in love with it. It provided the same sense of camaraderie that I loved about sports while allowing me to push and compete with myself. When I got stationed in MD, I joined a local gym. I was provided an opportunity to begin coaching and it was the perfect fit.
