What is your history with CrossFit?
I started doing CrossFit on my own at Ft. Lewis just over 2 years ago, following the main page WODs. I quickly grew tired of having to run from here to there for the equipment I needed, so I found the closest CrossFit gym to post. That is when things changed.
With the great coaching of Amy Desmond at CrossFit No Limits and the friendly competitive atmosphere of the box, I was soon setting PR's like they were going out of style. When I got my Level 1 certification back in November, Amy asked me to start training for her. I have been teaching a great group of students in the 5am class since that time. I love teaching CrossFit as much as love doing the WODs themselves. Nothing is greater than seeing a student set new PR!
I placed 16th over all at the 2010 Washington sectionals with a top 5 finish on the handstand push-up/front squat WOD, and a top 10 finish on the sled push/double-under/muscle-up WOD. I have loved every painful second since discovering CrossFit, and it has truly changed my life. From a half pack a day smoker who thought he was in good shape because he bench pressed every other day and ran 2 miles a couple times a week to an elite level athlete in just over 2 years. I will be doing CrossFit, and teaching it as well, until the day I can't stand... Then I'll just teach it!
