What is your athletic background?
I played rugby at school at provincial level. Did some powerlifting for about 3 years. Was a professional lifeguard & also did work at a river guide. Currently doing competitive weightlifting & will be attending the National Weightlifting Championships this year.
What is your history with CrossFit?
Started with CrossFit in mid-2008. It was a more structured way of training variance that just made sense. Implemented CrossFit with my personal training clients & got the results. Then opened up Ballistix CrossFit in February 2009. Never looked back!
