Thomas Richards

Thomas grew up in Minnetonka, MN and took up weightlifting from a young age. Through the inspiration of his cousin, he developed a passion for exercise and all of the benefits that come along with it. After years of traditional bodybuilding and strength programming, he discovered CrossFit and began doing WODs in his garage. After a number of years going at it alone, he decided to join a box and fell in love with the community and competitive nature.

I CrossFit because…

“…of the variation and intensity of the workouts. Along with the obvious benefits of CrossFit (fit, healthy etc.), it brings out an intensity and focus that you normally would not experience in a day-to-day life. It’s a never ending journey and it never get easier, you only get faster.”

I coach because…

“I’ve always been passionate about health and wellness and helping others develop into fitter and healthier lifestyles is a rewarding experience.”
