My Journey Coaching CrossFit

I was born an “average” athlete … good, but never the best. But I am an amazing academic student. Through studying CrossFit and training with some of world’s premier coaches, I learned how to coach and train CrossFit safely. Through CrossFit, I have been able to progress my own fitness far beyond what most people think is possible. Far beyond my own expectations. CrossFit has empowered me to run marathons and obstacle course races, do muscle ups & handstands walks, and lift heavier weight than I ever could with conventional training. At 43, I am in the best shape of my life, and I owe much of that success to correctly training in the CrossFit methodology. And to my friends and coaches in the Sand & Steel Community.

My certifications and degrees include: BioMedical Engineering - Johns Hopkins University. Juris Doctorate - Rutgers, CrossFit Level 3, CrossFit Powerlifting, CrossFit Gymnastics Coach, Yoga Teacher, Catalyst Athletics Oly Coach, M|WOD Mobility Specialist, Certified RR Running Coach, FRC and Kinstretch Instructor. I've trained over 3000 members and more than 200 personal trainers in my 10 years of professional coaching.

CrossFit brings such joy and vitality to my life. I teach so I can share this knowledge and experience with my friends in Alexandria, VA. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Welcome to Sand & Steel!
