Tell us a little bit about yourself, hobbies, occupation, etc. . .
I grew up in Kettering, OH and now live in Centerville with my wife Kelly and my three children; Jack, Maddie and Josh. We love going to Siesta Key and relaxing! I work at Gem City Tire dealing with just about everything from IT to AR to HR. I used to love to play basketball, but my knees don’t allow that anymore so I play golf now and of course CCF.
What brought you to Centerville CrossFit and CrossFit in general?
A few years ago my wife took a women’s only class for 9 weeks. When her classes were done she recruited me to join her at the 5:00 AM classes!!! At first I thought she was crazy and that I wouldn’t be able to any of the movements. I was wrong and was able to scale when needed. Unfortunately I have been doing at home workouts for most of this year – I miss the 5:00 AM-ers!!!
What goals have you achieved? What are your new ones?
Working out or moving everyday since April. Jen’s workouts through TrueCoach have been a huge help and motivating. Getting back to the gym instead of doing home workouts.
