Growing up I spent a lot of my time playing football. As I got older I played less and eventually joined the military to continue seeking thrills and challenges. After my active duty time I discovered CrossFit in 2015 and eventually found my way to Bandit CrossFit. As a Coach, regardless of gym affiliation, you are responsible for more than just “coaching”. I believe active listening and effective communication play a vital role in helping improve the quality of the members experience and maintains a high level of safety for each member while still setting goals to focus on and eventually achieve.
In this journey of health and fitness I have hit so many turning points, both good and bad. The good during these turning points are always my success stories such as accomplishing a new PR on an Olympic lift, running my fastest mile, running my longest distance, or even lowering my body fat while maintaining muscle. But, you can’t have the good without the bad. My bad turning points always revolve around bad food and letting myself get too comfortable. This is life and stuff happens, but what’s most important is navigating back to a turning point, setting a goal and fight for what you want. If you want to achieve your goals bad enough you will find a way.
The best part of being a Coach at Bandit CrosssFit is seeing committed members continuously striving to better theirselves and accomplishing goals they may have thought was never possible. Our members inspire me to do better and to be better.
