I have always played sports and as a kid I played football, baseball, soccer, and basketball. While in high school a coach told me I had to get stronger and faster so I did just that by entering a local gym and working with former powerlifter who taught me about Westside Barbell, and other powerlifting legends. After my baseball career ended in college and with the discovery of fried Mac n Cheese I put on some weight. Some weight however might be an understatement I had blown up to 308lbs. So with prior knowledge I managed to work my way back down to 230lbs. Still, I wasn’t satisfied with my bench press and stair climber lifestyle. Another box shared the same office complex where I happened to work at the time and I would see people doing power cleans and deadlifts all things I did as an athlete but wasn’t currently doing. So I walked over signed up and I haven’t looked back. Over time I found my way to CFBB, and this summer will mark my 3 year anniversary of CrossFit. In May of 2015 I got both my CF Level 1 and CF Mobility certificates. I have taken a great deal of pride in learning as much as I can about CrossFit and human movement, and it has also inspired me to go back to school and pursue a degree in Exercise Science. So If you see me doing some funny looking stretch don’t hesitate to ask. My favorite movement is the back squat but I also enjoy kettlebell work. Least favorite is burpees as I loathe them. I also helped coach a few undefeated freshman football teams at Immaculata and also have a State Champion baseball ring in my possession from our 2010 squad. I also for a short time coached Special Olympic athletes in the sport of powerlifting with one of them winning the gold medal in his class.
When I am not at CFBB I am usually following the Boston Red Sox, New York, Jets, or finding some obscure coffee and brewing it at home. I also enjoy reading, and yes Supple Leopard is picked up quite frequently as is anything written by Jon Krakauer.
