My passion for fitness began back in high school where I was a three sport athlete, but it wasn’t until my first year of college that I realized the impact I could have on the lives of others. I graduated in 2007 from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville as an Exercise and Wellness major. During my last semester I started working at Monroe Physical Therapy and The Training Room and would spend the next 10 years running group classes, personal training and learning everything I could while assisting the Physical Therapists.
I was introduced to CrossFit in 2010 shortly after finishing the Louisville Ironman. After my first CrossFit workout, I was hooked and I knew this was something I could see myself doing for a long time. Two months later in October I went to Indianapolis to receive my first Level 1 certification. I then coached classes, competed in local competitions and spread the word to everyone I know about CrossFit. Over the course of the next couple years I completed the CrossFit Endurance seminar and the CrossFit Mobility seminar. Fast forward 6 years to 2016 and that love for CrossFit, fitness and the passion to help others lead my wife, Stephanie, and I to open StrongArm CrossFit.
