Here is some bio information about him:

What got you into CrossFit: My older brother and sister conned me (lol) into trying it out in December 2011/ January 2012.

Coaching style: When it comes to coaching I like to spend A LOT of time on technique work with any of the lifts we’ll do. Sometimes, maybe more than what’s allocated for warmups. I also learned very early in my coaching that there is a modification for everything, we’ll just need to spend a little more time with those individuals. Outside of that, I will encourage you to challenge yourself, push your limits, celebrate the small victories, take a step back if necessary, and most importantly try to help prevent/recover from injury as much as possible.

What is one thing you bring to your classes that makes them unique/special: I thrive off of the energy the class brings. If y’all come in with a lot of energy, we’ll keep the party going. If y’all want to come in, get the work done, and go we can do that too. 

Favorite playlist/genre: Personally, I’m more of an R&B person, keeps me nice and calm especially before a major heart rate spike for an extended period of time. But in class, 90s – early 2000s hip-hop; latin: maybe salsa, bachata, merengue, or reggaeton; some sprinkles of rock and pop. Sorry Ray, not a lot of country playing if I’m coaching lol.

Favorite workout: Right now, anything that I can finish under the time cap! Lol — Realistically anything that does not include a run, row, ski, bike, swim, or a lot of wall balls and/or burpees LMAO!

Fitness Goals/Accomplishments: Get back to competing on a larger scale, Metcon Rush, Wodapalooza, Olympic Weightlifting and maybe Powerlifting.

Work/Hobbies: For work: I’m supposed to be fixing/maintaining medical equipment for the Army, but where I’m assigned now I pretty much herd cats… I mean military medical students… For hobbies: I love food — whether it’s cooking or exploring food places, I love car restoration and/or customization, and I also love being by/on the water when it’s warmer out. 

Fun Facts: Youngest of three; can usually pick up new skills very easily after watching someone do it a couple times; SUCKER FOR SWEETS.
