About Evan

My fitness background is roughly "none". Never a collegiate athlete, never an avid anything; I knew I should workout to be healthy and meet my goals, but always had some reason I didn't, couldn't or wouldn't. I had heard of CrossFit but no gyms were nearby, though I knew it was something different, something I could look forward to instead of grow bored with. I tried it on my own a few times to the best of my limited ability and knowledge, but never had the opportunity to really benefit from the experience.

One day, I decided to look again to see if any new gyms had been opened and I met the people who, today, have become a family to me. They reassured me when I thought I was going to literally die after every workout or could hardly move the following day and drove me to push harder than ever before. Through their support, I quickly turned into the person who made the time to improve my health in countless ways, and saw goals I had believed unattainable reached and exceeded.

It's an amazing feeling that everyone can and should experience and may only be surpassed by the satisfaction that comes from helping another to feel that success through coaching. Every day presents an opportunity to challenge yourself to be better than yesterday at CrossFit New Haven. I count myself lucky to be part of this "community of people who have decided that easy will no longer suffice" and I welcome you to be one of us.
