ABOUT ME 

My background started with 22 years playing football competitively through Rep in Guelph, to Highschool, and accepting a scholarship to the University of Waterloo. After graduating, I continued my football carrier playing professionally in Sydney Australia. During my time spend in Sydney, I picked up my passion for olympic weightlifting from my coach Peter Upham who coaches at the national level. When returning to Canada, as a long time personal trainer, I fell into a position of coaching at the CrossFit Side. The transition from football to CrossFit as an athlete was a no brainer. I loved to train and thrive on competition with not only other athletes, but seeing what my own body is capable of. With that being said, I pride myself on being a Coach first, and athlete second with a “practice what I preach” mentality.

My Favorite WOD: 

Fran: because it’s quick and dirty

My Least Favorite WOD:

Anything over 15 mins with running or rowing: I hate the mental game of trying to decide if I have paced properly. Although I’m working on it and it’s getting better.
