I CrossFit because…

“It’s a new challenge! There is so much to learn and improve on. And the people at Sisu are top-notch!”

I coach because…

Health and fitness have always been a major part of my life and I enjoy helping people reach their fitness goals at whatever level they are at. I believe that if you feel good inside the gym, it carries to other parts of your life and you have the confidence, energy, and happiness to be your best personally and professionally.
