I was born and raised in the great state of Arizona. I am originally from Flagstaff, but I have lived all over the valley, and finally ended up in Queen Creek, Arizona! While growing up I was involved in sports, specifically baseball, which I played year ’round all the way up into high school. I graduated from Mountain View High school in 2010. After I graduated I got a full time job working overnights. Consequently, for the next 3 years all the things I used to love and enjoy doing started to disappear. I put on some weight and became unhappy with myself and with where I was. I needed a change! My brother Jayme started this new thing called CrossFit and invited me along to try it out. Needless to say I became obsessed from day one. I started seeing results almost immediately, and I knew I wanted this to be a major part of my life. During my training, I was introduced to Olympic lifting, and I fell in love with the movements of the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. Since then, I have developed, implemented and evaluated OLY training programs, instructed hundreds of athletes, and put forth countless hours of coaching. Forty pounds lighter and four certifications heavier, I found my home at Fit Society. I am so stoked to be a part of the best training facility around!
