Why Coaching

Originally from the UK I moved to Syracuse in the fall of 2019 as my wife, Kelly, made the decision to move back home having spent time in Florida. Growing up, I was an avid soccer player and played semi-pro in the UK before moving stateside in 2017. While I had always 'trained' I never followed a program and found my love of CrossFit at Lake George CrossFit where I was a member for a little over a year. CrossFit helped to fill the competitive void that was missing from not playing soccer (that was until SHCF FC became a reality!).

From my background in coaching soccer and teaching, I wanted to certify in CrossFit, to help those around me get better. For me CrossFit isn't about the huge deadlift or stringing ring muscle-ups together it is about being a little bit better than yesterday. 

HOBBIES

Soccer, Running (not sure how that happened), traveling, concerts, craft beer.
