I grew up playing multiple sports, Football, Basketball, and Golf were my main sports in high school. Around junior year, I began to find a passion for lifting. After giving up football once I left for college, I needed to pursue something to keep me in shape. I found CrossFit in January of 2014 and I finally found my passion. The sport of CrossFit has changed my life. It has given me an opportunity to stay in shape and compete competitively. It has had a beneficial growth on my fitness and me as a person. It amazing to work in such an awesome community of people trying to better themselves. I hope I can further my knowledge in the sport and  get to do this for the rest of my life.
