I have been around sports and fitness since the day I can remember, and it will be apart of my life forever. I was introduced to CrossFit as a sophomore in college and was instantly hooked. I got my CFL-1 certification at the University of San Diego 3 months in to starting as an athlete.
CrossFit allows me to wake up every morning and do what I love! Coaching everyday people to better health and fitness habits is more rewarding than I can explain. Seeing people achieve goals that they thought were impossible is extremely exciting and makes me feel like I’m making a difference in the community.

My goal as a CrossFit coach is to help create a happier, healthier community that supports each other not only inside the gym, but outside the gym as well.

I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m the second youngest of five, and we were all competitive growing up. I started sports at an early age, finding baseball and football as my favorites. I also played lacrosse but just for a short period of time. I went on to excel at football in high school, lettering 3 years and also winning 3 state championships.
My success in football earned me a scholarship to play Junior College at both Glendale Community College and Scottsdale Community College. During my sophomore year of college football I snapped my tibia in half and it ended my career.

Since I could no longer be competitive at traditional sports, and the LA Fitness routine was starting to bore me, I needed to get back to being competitive again. I was introduced to CrossFit by a couple friends and I was instantly hooked. Not only did it allow me to be competitive again, but I also came to a realization of what my passion was, fitness. I ended up choosing to go to school for Exercise and Wellness and graduated in May 2014. By getting the Exercise and Wellness bachelors degree I have learned so much about exercise and the benefits that people can get out of it. After getting my CrossFit Level 1 Cert a year later I realized that owning a CrossFit gym, competing, and coaching CrossFit was what I wanted to do for a living. I love the lifestyle that I live. I love waking up every day to help others achieve their lifestyle and fitness goals.

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and currently am enrolled at Scottsdale Community College furthering my education in health and fitness. I have no athletic background, so when I found crossfit, it completely changed my life. I began my crossfit journey two and a half years ago, and my passion for fitness has grown bigger every year!
Never being on a team growing up makes me proud to call Crossfit my sport of choice. One thing Crossfit has given me is a huge boost of confidence in myself.

I stuck with something that was extremely difficult for me in the beginning and it has paid off. I enjoy teaching kids the importance of exercise and staying fit through out life, and helping members reach their fitness goals as well. My goals as a coach is to show my support and help people live a healthy lifestyle. My goal as an athlete is to make is to regionals with my gym as a team.

I was born and raised in Hollywood, CA. I have been involved in sports ever since I was a kid. In high school I played football and track. Since playing football as an undersized long snapper wasn’t exactly going to bring on college scouts, I turned my focus to track & field. I ran the 400m dash, the 4x400m relay, 300m hurdles, and the 4x100m relay.
I lettered my freshman year for the 400m dash and ran on varsity the remainder of my high school years ending with 4 league championships and 1 state championship.

Due to a hamstring injury my last year of track, I was unable to run track at the collegiate level. Instead, I turned towards intramural sports and the globo gym style of working out. I first heard of CrossFit through a college friend and gave it a shot. I was hooked on the community and the ability to see your hard work pay off. I wanted to help others achieve their goals which is why I decided to take the CrossFit trainer’s course. The most rewarding part for me is helping someone with a movement whether it’s lifts or gymnastics and seeing the light turn on in their head when they get it.
