Why did you want to become a CrossFit coach?

Fitness has always been a big part of my life. Helping people succeed has always been another. When CFNH offered me the opportunity to do something I am so passionate about, and was able to provide the flexibility I needed to work around my career as a financial consultant, I jumped at it. In both jobs my goal is to help people improve their lives, whether it's financially or physically - and for that I consider myself lucky. But there is something different about being in the gym; when you get to lose the formal dress code and really connect with people for who they are and not what they do. The athletes motivate me everyday and this gym has an incredible ability to help you destress and clear your mind - it's an integral part of my life and something I plan to be apart of for a very long time.

Favorite CrossFit Movement: Overhead Squats

Favorite part about being a coach at CrossFit New Haven:

Getting motivated by our athletes. Although it's part of my job to motivate them, in my experience it tends to work the other way around just as much, if not more.

Available for:

Personal On Ramps, and some limited availability for CrossFit-specific Personal Training and Personal Programming
