Other Training – 4 years of Collegiate Baseball Being active and exercising has always been a passion of mine. Coming from a sports driven family I have played sports throughout my life, in high school playing football, basketball, and baseball. I chose to take baseball to the next level and play collegiate baseball at MSU-Billings. CrossFit has changed my way of thinking completely around about fitness and exercise, I always thought that I was in great health growing up and doing all the right things to help me in my sports career. Little did I know I was wrong…Since finding CrossFit in late 2011 I have been getting in the best shape of my life, achieving goals I never thought possible before CrossFit. My favorite attribute CrossFit has given me a second family, the community at CrossFit Billings is one of a kind. My favorite part of coaching at the gym is watching people reaching goals they never thought were possible. CrossFit is more than just a gym, you will not see someone walk into the gym and not be greeted by some of the athletes before class. There are no mirrors, machines, ellipticals, or someone doing bicep curls in the squat rack. Why I love being apart of a CrossFit gym is because the relationships you build with each person at the gym, we come in all shapes and sizes and seeing each athlete achieve a fitness/health goal of theirs makes being a trainer great! Whether their goal is to lose 5lbs or PR on their back squat, watching them suffer everyday to cross off that goal and seeing their joy of finally accomplishing whatever it may be is why I come each and everyday.

Being active was always a part of my life. I started Tae Kwon Do at age 5 and spent years training and competing. I also spent years on swim team and playing soccer. When I was 17 I enlisted in the Montana Army National Guard Military Police. During my time in the service I was deployed to Baghdad Iraq where I was wounded in a roadside bombing. After returning home I struggled with the physical and emotional injuries and became very sedentary.
I was introduced to CrossFit through a friend, I wanted to be active again but didn’t know where to start. My first workout was only 10 minutes long and I didn’t even finish it I was so out of shape. But the coaches were amazing and encouraging. I decided I had to come back and finish that workout. 6 years later I’m still doing CrossFit and loving it. CrossFit’s ability to be adapted to anyone has been immense in helping with my pain management from my injuries as well as giving me another tool for coping with the emotional injuries. As a coach it’s pure delight for me to watch someone hit a new personal best or achieve a movement they never thought they would. I hope through coaching I can continue to give back to a community that has given me so much. I can’t imagine what my life would look like these days without my CrossFit family.

Since the days of bench pressing on my dad’s old Weider bench in the basement and shooting make believe buzzer beaters in the driveway. To carrying 120 pound rucksacks and shooting targets at 1000 plus yards in the Marine Corps. My lifestyle has always been an active one. I played the usual football, Basketball, and baseball through high school. But I never really applied myself to excel at anything at a younger age. Then at 18 years old I joined the Marines. This is where I learned what the human mind and body is really capable of. I mention mind before body because the body will always succumb to the mind. I learned that the body is extremely resilient but will crumble to the slenderest of thought. This is why I have clung to this beautiful thing called Crossfit. There is a unique camaraderie that which resembles what I felt in the military, in the brotherly way.
It is the best group of people that I have met and I can absolutely trust every single person in the community. I don’t know what the magic is that is behind it but I can definitely feel it. It grabs hold of those who are willing to see themselves and others at their best. This “best” looks different amongst everyone but there is always a common trait. It is simply the will to act. This is the first and biggest milestone one must choose for themselves. You must tell your mind that you are worth what you want to be. Your body will ensue. And this community will definitely be by your side through it all!
