Crossfit came to me by way of injury. I can almost thank the injury for introducing me to crossfit. I had hurt my back really bad in a hard landing in a helicopter back in 2003 and our navy physical therapist told me about it. I started digging around the net and found a few workouts and started doing them, working the full range of motion and started noticing my back pain was starting to lessen. For the next couple of years I was implementing it into my regular work outs and slowly it became my only workouts. Being a navy medic and helping people always made me feel good and being a trainer was something I had always been interested in but not having all the time in the world to get it done. After leaving the military, that was the first thing that was on my list and this is where I'm at today. I love crossfit kool aid and i'll continue to drink it and offer it to anyone who is striving to become better at life.
