I have been CrossFitting for over 3 years and love doing local competitions, especially team and partner competitions. I love to lift! Doing something like a heavy squat clean EMOM is my favorite. Outside of the gym I like to spend time with my loved ones and “fur child” Rue, a ridiculously adorable fluffy Corgi. I like hiking, camping and summer nights around the fire pit. I also love going to concerts and adding to the long list of bands I’ve seen live.
Favorite WOD: My favorite WODs involve cleans. It’s hard to pick one but I’ll say “Grace.”
Least Favorite WOD: Thruster/Burpee combos are my kryptonite. Please don’t make me do Open WOD 14.5/16.5!
Favorite WOD Song: I love to workout to anything heavy! Metallica, Korn, Rage Against the Machine and Rob Zombie are good. I like to rock out.
Favorite WOD: 14.5/16.5 Thrusters & Burpees are my jam
Least Favorite WOD: Anything with the ass bike aka assault bike.
Favorite WOD Song: Don’t have one as long as it’s heavy metal or rap I’m happy

Favorite WOD Song: I really don’t have a favorite but anything Godsmack, Korn, Tool, Disturbed… anything that gives me an extra push.

My fitness journey began at a very young age, I was involved in gymnastics, dance, cheer, volley ball and Tae Kwon Do in my formative years. From 2015 – 2017 I competed competitively in the bikini division of the NPC body building world. (1st place Washington State Open 2015, 5th place Craig Productions Ironman 2015, 1st place Craig Productions Emerald Cup 2016, 4th place Craig Productions Emerald Cup 2017, 4th Jr. Nationals – Chicago 2017)
My health and fitness education stemmed first in July 2013 when I made one the best decision in my life, to become a certified yoga instructor and since then I have not looked back. After achieving my 200 RYT yoga instructor certification I continued my studies of the human body, as well as social justice, at the University of Washington where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies. In addition, I’ve studied Personal Training through the National Academy of Sports Medicine as well as Fitness Nutrition Specialization, as well as Holistic Nutrition Health Coach certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I truly believe that knowledge is the greatest of wisdoms and as such my educational journey will never be complete. Ultimately I would like to obtain my Master’s Degree in Exercise Science and Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. My deepest passion lies in educating and inspiring others on how to create a healthy and balanced lifestyle and reach any fitness goal they set their and to.

After a 25 year career in the Navy. I thought I was in pretty good shape. Then I found CrossFit!! I started CrossFit in late 2015 and quickly knew I wanted to start coaching, that way I could guide others to become a stronger, healthier and happier. I have completed the LVL 1 and Master’s courses, and always looking for new ways to help and push others. Father to three children and married to my lovely wife Rebecca for over 24 years and enjoy each day we are on our CrossFit journey together. I didn’t want to just join a “gym” but a community that will help drive and push everyone to exceed their fitness goals, and that is what I found in IronHide CrossFit.
Favorite WOD: Anything with Rope Climbs!!!
Least Favorite WOD: Love/Hate relationship with “FRAN”
Favorite WOD Song: Rocky theme song when I think I can’t go on.
A few years ago I got dragged into the gym by a friend who started at IronHide and I have not looked back! I started out just wanting to get healthy but soon found myself signing up for competitions. I love getting to watch so many people accomplish more than they knew they could. Outside of CrossFit I cut hair and think about CrossFit as a pastime.
Favorite WOD: Anything with some overhead squats! Bring it.
Least Favorite WOD: Anything with thrusters..why the thrusters.
Favorite WOD Song: Let the Bodies Hit the Floor
