When did you start CrossFit?
April Fool’s Day 2011

What made you start CrossFit?
I got tired of P90X and Insanity.

When did you come to SLSC?
I think I started coming around when I was in town off and on in late 2015.

What do you enjoy about SLSC?
When I initially made the move to Chicago I was gym shopping for a few weeks and getting really frustrated. I walked in to SLSC and met John Lee and ended up joining before I even worked out. I knew I had walked into a gym that had “it.”

What do you enjoy about coaching?
I love seeing someone light up when they do something that they never thought they could, like climb a rope or do a handstand push-up. It is all about providing an opportunity for people to realize their potential.

What would you say to someone who is considering trying out SLSC but is unsure?
I would simply ask, “What the hell are you afraid of?” Then I would listen and respond with a little FDR philosophy and explain that, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
