Coach Rob

Dedication to the pursuit of excellence is what got me in to CrossFit, and is the driving force behind the reason I will never step away from it. I've been in the gym for as long as I can remember but indulging myself in CrossFit began for me in 2011. I was chasing ideas of how to make Motocross riders perform better on the track and the design of workouts/programming seemed to match intensity of the sport. Being a big believer in coaches should lead by actions and not just words, I started to complete the workouts before they were programmed to understand the stimulus a bit more. That is where it started and I have not stopped since. Before CrossFit I was pursuing a career as a professional golfer and playing in hopes of playing on the PGA Tour. I turned pro for 1 year leaving school early to do so, but training outside of the course slowly crept in front of my will to want to play tournament golf. I had a more enjoyable time preparing athletes for competition than I did hopping on the big stage myself. I still aspire to compete at the top level and will give it another shot at some point, but right now my focus is purely CrossFit and making everyone in my path a more FIT individual. I think the biggest attribute I bring to the table as far as a coach, is the understanding of what it takes to become a professional, regardless of sport or activity. Not just in personal dedications but in dealing with many different athletes, and studying great athletes careers, it has given me the understanding that we can push harder than we can imagine with the proper mindset.
