When did you start CrossFit?

What made you start CrossFit?
I started CrossFit after wrapping up my hockey career. I had finished a year playing junior hockey, and after dabbling in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I was looking for my next activity. A friend of mine, who trained and coached, at CrossFit New England in the summers, decided to start a CrossFit gym at our school. I begrudgingly attended my first class after weeks of pestering and was instantly hooked

When did you come to SLSC?
June 2023

What do you enjoy about SLSC?
The people and the gym continue to amaze me every day. SLSC is a community of fun, kind, and hard working members. Everyone there pushes themselves to be better every day, while making sure to enjoy the process along the way.

The team at SLSC is also top notch. The coaching staff is incredibly knowledgable and well-qualified. Todd and the SLSC team do a great job of fostering an environment of learning and collaboration to make sure everyone at SLSC learns from one-another, while continuing to grow and improve. Walking into the gym, you can tell there is intention behind everything they do, and an attention to detail to ensure it’s executed to the best ability.

What do you enjoy about coaching?
Helping people discover all the amazing things their bodies are able to achieve
