Get in Touch:

Athletics has always been an important part of my life.I grew up in Dallas, and graduated from Arizona State University. In 2009 decided to leave corporate America, move back to Dallas and follow my passion- helping others through CrossFit.

How long have you been crossfiting?

I was living in Seattle and began CrossFit in 2002 at the world’s first CrossFit Affiliate- CrossFit North. Andrew Krynen, a friend of mine showed me an article written by Greg Glassman and told me I had to come check out CrossFit North. I went, saw a bunch of gymnastics equipment, kettlebells, barbells, medicine balls and more… I was hooked on CrossFit and have been doing it ever since. Turns out this place was the start of an affiliate revolution! I was their gymnastics coach and got my Level 1 certification in 2003.

What is your favorite movement/WOD?

Being a former gymnast, body weight movements come pretty easy for me. My favorite movement is the pullup. My official record at CrossFit Luna is 55 in a row, unofficial is 63. My favorite WOD is Fran… It makes me nervous just thinking about it.

What are some of your goals?

To continue to offer the best coaching, programming and facilities for our members.

How do you see CrossFit being different than other fitness programs?

We have worked really hard to create a program that is inclusive of everyone at any level of fitness. The community we have here is what separates CrossFit Luna from other fitness programs.
