As a collegiate athlete I always knew that I would be someone who had fitness in my life. It was my job to be in shape and when that ended after finishing up college, reality kicked in. I couldn’t stay motivated to swim by myself and was really over the pool scene. After gaining about 30 pounds I decided I needed a new passion. I started to run. Running isn’t necessarily the most exciting sport but I started to get the job done so I signed up for every race I could to stay motivated with training. I ran my first half marathon and then full marathon in the first year and that was pretty much the end of my running career (hated the training- 20 miles in one day isn’t that fun).
Searching for something else I decided to go to this “CrossFit” class with some friends. We had a heck of a time trying to find the storage unit that this class was being run out of and had no clue what to expect. After getting the intro I was ready to go. It was July, 2011 and it was a scorcher out… AMRAP 7 will forever haunt me. Here I am, all tough and mighty with my 15lb dumbbells!!! Round 1: Liz 0, CFC 1. This brought me back for more and I bought my first 1 month membership.
It didn’t take long for me to make a change in my lifestyle to adapt to CrossFit. I was officially addicted and way too competitive to let this thing beat me. CrossFit can be a lifestyle change for anyone and everyone and although intimidating at first can be adapted to any level. I have been able to accomplish things that I never thought was possible (I went from doing 1 pull up to 100) and I truly believe that we can impact any individual no matter what level you are at… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?
Let’s kick some butt!!!

I’m a father, husband, lawyer and a passionate CrossFit Trainer. Before I stumbled upon CrossFit I tried many different modes of developing fitness by going to the big box globo gyms, taking martial arts classes and even trying the popular workout DVD’s. For more than a decade I thought I achieved a respectable level of fitness, but nothing prepared me for my first CrossFit workout. It was in October of 2008 when I tried “Elizabeth” and it floored me. From this point on I was immediately hooked, and for a while afterward I relied solely on crossfit.com, my standard barbell, dumbbells and a door frame pull-up bar for my workouts. I must admit, however, that I went back to the globo gym a couple of times when it was raining or snowing hard to use their treadmill for running. But about six months later I cancelled my membership and soon thereafter I converted my garage into “my box”.
Day after day, WOD after WOD, for the next two years, my fascination for CrossFit grew. I saw myself improving by leaps and bounds in my capacity for strength, power, endurance and in many other areas too many to mention here. Eventually, I got my friends into doing CrossFit, I purchased more equipment and finally I became a Certified CrossFit Trainer.
Few things in life deliver results as dramatically and consistently. CrossFit has made me realize what I can do and how far I can go. But most importantly, it has revealed to me who I really am. Come train with us and you will see what I’m talking about. But more, come over and you will find a rare group of dedicated men and women who are serious about refining their fitness and health. You’ll see that we have great fun in doing it, and that we welcome anyone interested in doing the same. Like I tell everyone, “Come on over, get in and get awesome!”
