CrossFit & Intensity Coach

After recently moving to Colorado, I joined the Intensity Park Meadows and Littleton family in December 2017. I believe the athlete’s success is my success. My greatest satisfaction as a coach is to see that moment of clarity in an athlete’s eyes. My goal is to help people safely improve their movement for long term health and to have fun during the process. I frequently reflect on my fitness hierarchy of “Stability > Mobility > Technique > Intensity > Volume”.

I was never involved with organized sports during my youth; skateboarding was my sport of choice. Much later in life, I was inspired to be more active after a conversation with a friend who had recently finished the Boston Marathon. Deciding to enter short distance triathlons, and without a swimming background, the jump to athletics was fairly arduous. On a whim, I was given an article from a local newspaper regarding Crossfit Endurance. After one Endurance class consisting of rowing, push presses, and lunges, I was hooked. It wasn’t until a year later that I jumped into formal Crossfit classes. My first WOD – Murph.
