Coaching Philosophy: I had been participating in competitive sports for the better
portion of my life and it all came to a halt after graduating college. I started going to the local Globo-gym trying to stay in shape but I wasn’t getting much out of it and I felt like something was missing. I joined Crossfit Templar in January 2012 and the rest was history – I was officially addicted! I had been missing the feeling of camaraderie and competitiveness that you get when you’re part of a team. To me, the athletes at CrossFit Templar make up our team where we get to push
and help each other to reach our fitness goals. Everyday brings a new workout
with different functional movements that are safe and applicable to your everyday life. My goal is to put all of our athletes in the best position to start, meet, and exceed their personal goals in fitness – while having a great time doing it!!
