How I discovered coaching

Our military affiliate in Okinawa (Shogun CrossFit) had an all-volunteer 
staff.  Due to military members rotating off island in 2014, we were 
shorthanded on coaching staff, and there happened to be a Level 1 course on 
island that summer, so signed up and quickly found myself coaching 3-4 hours a 
week!  My experience leading military physical fitness training made it an 
easy fit!

What I love about coaching

I love giving back.  I enjoy seeing athletes’ reactions to even the smallest 
PRs.  Some days that PR may just be getting through the work out.  Listen to 
an athlete come in to warm up  and talk about their challenging or bad day at 
work, but for an hour they sling iron, run, row, jump.  They’re panting sweaty 
messes, and they’re smiling.

Personal likes and hobbies outside the gym

Obstacle Course Racing, running, shooting, off-roading, SCUBA.  Working out 
with my family.  (That last one may not count as out side of the gym)

Something I'm not good at

Double Unders and Mobility, but I’m working on both!!


Lots of PRs, but community with my friends, whether its dinner or a race
