I’ve always had a passion for sports and competition. I started playing everything at a young age, whether it was baseball, karate, soccer, or just football in the backyard, if I could compete I wanted to play. There was something about pushing myself to new levels trying to win that I got addicted to. As I grew up, karate became my main sport of choice. With my competitive spirit I was able to have success but more importantly a ton of fun fighting all over the world in karate. In order for me to get better at karate I needed to get faster and stronger, that’s when I found Crossfit. I instantly fell in love with Crossfit and knew I had found something I would be doing for a long time.
When I moved up to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida, one of the first things I did was look for a Crossfit gym. When I found LIV, I knew I had found my people and my new home in Gainesville. Coaching at a place like LIV is a dream come true to be able to be goofy and give people the best hour of their day while also giving them the tools to live healthier and more active lives.
