How long have you been CrossFitting? How did you end up at Cornerstone? I started in June of 2012. I knew someone who owned a CF gym in Kentucky and I always wanted to try it. Cornerstone was the first and only CF gym that I tried. I was hooked right away!

How have you seen yourself change (mentally, physically,etc) since being a part of CFC? I think that I have changed the most physically. When I started CF, my weight was in the 160’s and now I’m 210ish. I’ve put on a lot of strength since my first day at Cornerstone.

What are some of your goals that you have for yourself in the next year? I really want to get my clean and jerk up to at least 300lbs.

What is something that others may not know about me? The truth is…. I am Iron Man… Seriously though, I talk so much and never shut up. I think everyone knows everything about me.

 I’d like to add one thing if I may….   People may already know this, but I am always wanting to make people smile and laugh. I absolutely love laughing and I’m always joking around with people.
