When my wife and I and our 6-month-old son moved to Sarasota in 2005, I began looking for a place to study martial arts. During that time our family grew from 3 to 10 through the birth of our daughter and adoption through the foster care system. I had the makings of my very own kung fu school so everything I learned from sifu, I taught to my kids. After 8 years of training with him I was trying to figure out how to increase my strength and stamina beyond what my then current workouts had provided. I tried going to a few different gyms to lift by myself but just couldn’t stick with it. I saw a FB ad for the 90 day challenge at RFS and was immediately hooked. Last year I completed my Level 1 training and then took the CrossFit striking class. I am also in the process of becoming a certified personal trainer. I love learning and working hard to develop new skills.
CrossFit has a huge impact on my coordination. strength, and stamina. It has helped me start to get control of my nutrition and be more serious about recovery. I want a share all of that with people. I look forward to attending class everyday not just for the workouts but for the people that have become my friends though burpees.
