What did you do for fitness before CrossFit? Did you play any sports growing up? In High School and College I competed in horse shows.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? I didn’t start getting into health and fitness until a few years ago when my sister, Tracy, introduced me to crossfit.  We were both single at the time and she insisted that every “hot” guy she knew went to crossfit.  That was enough motivation to get started.  Now my motivation for continuing CrossFit has become a little more noble, ha ha!

What was your first workout and how did it go? How did you feel after? I’ll never forget my first Crossfit workout.  It was only 8 minutes.  I don’t remember exactly which movements, but I definitely remember feeling like I was going to throw up afterwards.  I told the instructor and she nonchalantly instructed me to do it outside and not in the bathroom.  Obviously, exercising to the point of puking was not unusual.

Favorite CF Movements: Lately, double under jump roping.  I recently accomplished doing more than just one or two at a time.

Least Favorite Movements: Wall balls.  Hands down. Read Full Athlete Spotlight Here…
