Stefan Guire
For as long For as long as I can remember I’ve always had the competitive bug.  Growing up with a brother that was three years older than I inspired me to compete in just about anything and everything I could.  If an activity could be timed, measured, or judged I wanted to try and put up the best score. I played the typical sports as a kid including basketball, soccer, and flag football.  In highschool I found my first true athletic passion competing in track. Playing any other sport my favorite part of practice was always the conditioning, especially running.  I competed in various events from the 200m dash to the mile but found my niche running the 400m.  

After highschool I decided to attend the University of Florida to pursue a degree in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology.  I wanted to take my passion for athletics and training and refine it through my education. During the summer after my freshman year of college I took the advice of a friend and attended the crossfit class he coached.  I was instantly hooked on the intense style of training and I especially took to the competitive environment that crossfit creates.  I was suddenly exposed to this whole world where I could learn so many new skills and my competitiveness wasn't only tolerated but encouraged.  

When the fall semester started I tried to train on my own doing crossfit workouts but it just wasn’t the same.  After searching around town I found Crossfit Gainesville.  I immediately felt I was in the right place when I started training at LIV Athletic.  Now, a couple of years later I can truly call the community here at LIV Athletic my home away from home.  LIV Athletic has given me the opportunity to take my passion for fitness and the knowledge i’ve developed over the years and apply it directly to making an impact in other people's lives.
