Growing up in Maine I would say I was athletic but not overly fit playing football and basketball in high school n doing just enough in the off-season to make the team n play decent. After high school I missed the team and competition feel team sports give you. I disliked basic gyms and kinda became a runner to stay in shape n not much else. In 2005 I moved to AZ and got a job in corrections. Although I could usually hold my own in there I had some close calls n needed to put on some more muscle. My wife introduced my to CrossFit Leiftime in 2009 just after they moved to the current location and I was hooked after my 1st week. Been lucky enough to coach at LT from 2012 to 2015 when I moved back to Maine for two years. Coached in Maine at Back Cove CrossFit which helped me grow as a coach n person greatly. Moved back in February of 2018. Glad to be back where I started. Excited to help, learn and be apart of this awesome community again!

I grew up in Mesa, AZ and played football growing up. I am pretty sure that every single bone in my body is competitive. I think it is important to find an avenue that helps to push you to be the best you and Crossfit was just that for me. Crossfit has added so much to my life but not just on a fitness level. The community and sense of camaraderie has been a pleasant surprise. Everyone, regardless of the experience or fitness level is supportive and encouraging of each other. More importantly, to be able to surround yourself with like-minded people just makes sense.
My better half, Angela, is very much a part of the business and helps facilitate behind the scenes logistics of our business. She and I have 6 kids between the two of us and we do our best to be role models to our children. We are very fortunate to be able to show them an active lifestyle is a great way to live and push yourself.
Owning Crossfit LT has been one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. To be able to coach the members, encourage them and see how much dedication and hard work pays off is why I get up every day. I do my best to create a positive environment for our members and our coaches. At the end of the day, if I help one person feel better and become healthier than that is all I can ask for.
