I try to get in at least 5-6 days a week

I was a golfer and a “bro” lifter… So I don’t have much of one (haha)

I hit the time cap on my first WOD at Northlake. It was a challenge and a clear indicator that I had (and still have) a lot of work to do to reach my goals.

Aside from meeting tons of awesome people… I got my first muscle up in my first week at Northlake!

Buy a t-shirt. Once you’ve done that, meet as many people as you can and look for people who can teach you. Working out with friends is 100x more fun.

I was pretty strict paleo for a while but JB put me on the oats/rice diet to go along with that.

I’m a field software consultant.

14. What drives you to be an active family?

I want to stay healthy my whole life so its best to get into good habits now.
