I started doing CrossFit as a way to maintain my fitness level for hockey/baseball and as my interest level grew so did the spark to research becoming a coach. I’ve held multiple certifications, including CrossFit L1, CrossFit L2, and specialties in CrossFit Gymnastics/Strongman/Movement and Mobility. I have a BS in Kinesiology from JMU and MS in Exercise Physiology from Florida State University. I’m currently an Exercise Physiologist at Boston Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehab program.
CrossFit for most of my life has really given me the strength and confidence to excel at sports, but my mindset has been starting to shift recently for long term health and wellness. Through my experiences I hope to give back the knowledge I have learned over the past 10+ years to CrossFit Ares and help our members reach their goals.
My current background in Cardiac Rehabilitation has given me motivation to return to coaching and apply its concepts/strategies to our CrossFit Ares members. Exercise is a lifetime activity and the benefits of exercise far outweigh the negatives long term. It’s important to have an understanding about how the aging process works and how we can put ourselves in good positions to succeed down the road.
