I am a graduate of Deer Lakes High School and Allegheny College. I have competed as an athlete all of my life in various sports. During my time in school, I developed a strong passion for fitness and nutrition. Over the next decade, my methods of achieving fitness constantly evolved until I found CrossFit. I was training for my third marathon when I was invited by a friend to do a workout. It was the 2012 CrossFit Games Open workout 12.1. This workout’s goal was to complete a maximum number of burpees in seven minutes. After years of workouts that lasted hours, I couldn’t believe how much seven minutes could hurt! From that day on, I was hooked. I was amazed by the results of CrossFit’s constantly varied and intense workouts. After a year into CrossFit, I wanted to take my knowledge and growth as an athlete to the next level by becoming a CrossFit Level 1 trainer. Now coaching at CrossFit RITE, I get to do something I truly love. I am blessed to have an amazing wife, two sons and daughter. My family comes first, which makes it that much more important for me to get the most out of a few workouts a week. I have learned to get the results I want through proper nutrition and supplementation. These areas can make a huge impact on your results, so please come see me with any questions. Now chalk up and lift something heavy!
