As a kid, I considered myself somewhat athletic. After graduating from Boston University, I focused on my career in IT as a systems administrator. Consequently, I didn’t put much thought into my health and fitness. In my 30’s, I was out of shape and started to dislike the way I looked in the mirror. I knew I had to make a change. I dabbled in the globo gym scene, but didn’t enjoy it and couldn’t keep myself motivated. Finally, my amazing wife Stephanie started CrossFit, and she convinced me to try it out.
I’ll be honest: I didn’t want to. I figured I would hate it and quit. I forced myself to give it a month. Well, I got hooked. I’ve been a member at CrossFit 110 since 2015, and I absolutely love it. I look forward to seeing what the workout is every day and challenging myself to be better than I was yesterday. I feel like I am healthier now than I’ve ever been.
One of my favorite aspects of CrossFit 110 is the community. The people are what keeps me coming back, not just the workouts. Everyone at the box has such a great attitude. I decided to become a coach because I genuinely enjoy motivating people to improve their own health and fitness.
I also love that Stephanie and I both do CrossFit; it gives us something else in common that we can share together. When we are not in the gym, you can find us spending time with our three awesome boys (Nicholas, Alexander, and Theodore).
