  • CrossFit Level 2 (CF L2)

Coaching Philosophy:
As a coach, my #1 goal is to focus on the CrossFit principle of mechanics, consistency, intensity. Everyone wants to get stronger and faster (including me), but the key to achieving those goals safely is solid mechanics. Beyond that it’s important to me to bring energy and enthusiasm to the class as much as I can. I want people to leave the class feeling it was the best hour of their day.

Year You Started CrossFit, and How You Found It:
I discovered it by chance in 2016 after years as a runner, cyclist, and swimmer. It’s no exaggeration to say that CrossFit profoundly changed not just my approach to fitness, but my entire life.

Outside the Box:

Random John Fact:
I love chess – and I’m possibly the worst chess player I know.

Favorite Food:
Italian. Quanto è delizioso!
