Tell us about yourself (e.g. interests, hobbies, occupation, life story, struggles and/or successes)
I spent four years in the Marine Corps. I have worked for the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as a Rigger for 15 years. I was a High School Wrestling Coach for many years. I have four amazing children. I have struggled with weight for most of my adult life until about a year ago when I began working out at Crossfit 207 and changed my eating habits.
How and when did you first discover Crossfit:
I discovered Crossfit several years ago but due to knee surgery, the timing wasn’t right to try it. I started at the Crossfit 207 gym a year ago doing the bar belt club with Jamie as my coach. I took my first Crossfit class about a month later and have been committed ever since. Crossfit has changed my life.
What is your favorite thing about the gym/Crossfit:
The coaches, especially Anne and Lance. I also enjoy the sense of community that the gym has. Everyone is supportive.
Favorite color: Green
Favorite food: Pizza and medium rare ribeye steak.
Favorite exercise: deadlift
Most dreaded exercise: Overhead squat
Personal best: 300lbs deadlift and 250lb back squat

I would like to thank everyone at Crossfit 207 for their encouragement.
