What is your athletic background?
I played football and track in highschool (threw shotput and discus) and then played football in college before running and lifting aimlessly for a few years prior to finding CrossFit.
What is your history with CrossFit?
One day a good friend of mine who lives on Nantucket Island called me and said, "Hey, when you come out for the 4th of July you have to try this thing I've been doing..." That thing was CrossFit. To make a long story short, I did a WOD with Steve at CrossFit Nantucket and was instantly hooked. I went home from that vacation, researched it, and started doing it on my own dot-com style in my globo-gym. A few months later I met Ben and Heather Bergeron at the grand opening of CrossFit New England, and I've been there ever since. Watching the CFNE athletes compete in Albany last year is what pushed me over the threshold to becoming a competitor. Since then, CrossFit has improved my life in every way imaginable, I don't know where I'd be without it, and the amazing people I've met.
