“Growing up I was not athletic until I discovered the weight room in High School. That was the start of the journey that first took me into Powerlifting with Mike Magruder. Under his tutelage I set dead lift world records in the newly created 259lbs class of the WABDL federation. I was then fortunate to meet and train with the 2005 2nd Strongest Man in the World, Jesse Marunde, for 3 years. With his knowledge and techniques I found myself reaching the rank of number 1 Amateur in the US 3 years out of the next 7. Something was missing though as I struggled with injuries, proper movement, and nutrition. I spent time at MBS CrossFit and Pat Burke early in 2013 watching him and his crew do some brutal workouts. It was their environment and openness to let me train that convinced me to switch sports from Strongman to CrossFit. Since June 2013 I been getting an education in business, coaching, marketing, sales, management, book keeping, motivating, listening, and helping others thanks to the creation and operation of CrossFit Pagosa.”
