Who You Are

As a team player, when you see a need, you step in to help regardless of hierarchy. You are innately curious about all things CrossFit and are constantly digging into the latest and greatest techniques, progressions, motivators and more.
When it comes to your athletes, you are empathetic and encouraging knowing when and how to push depending on the unique rapport you’ve built with each and every one of your clients. You pride yourself on building a genuine connection that extends well beyond the gym walls and are committed to bettering the mind, body and spirit of any trainee in your charge.
