Birthday, Current Hometown

August 2nd, and I'm from Dedham, MA.

 

How did you discover crossfit / olympic lifting

I found Crossfit through one of my friends mom telling us to try it out.

 

Pre-training ritual

My pre- training ritual usually is having a smoothie and playing some music to get me fired up to train.

 

Recovery ritual

My recovery ritual is on non training days i like to eat some dessert.

 

Favorite conditioning movement or lift

My favorite conditioning movement would be running and my favorite lift would be the snatch.

 

Favorite Arrowhead Tape

My favorite arrowhead athletic tape would be the black stretch tape.

 

How do you use Our Tape in Crossfit/Lifting/Training-

I always put the arrowhead athletic tape on my thumbs, when I Olympic lift.

 

What are your competitive goals in 2017?

My competitive goal for 2017 is continue to improve mentally, physically and spiritually. Also would like to compete in the Granite Games as well.

Favorite music for training and competing

My favorite training music would definitely be Drake.

 

What is important to you outside of training and competing?

What's most important to me is my family, friends and my girlfriend.

When I turned 50 years old I had my first bone density test which showed osteoporosis.  My doctor told me to go do some weight bearing exercise. I was a power walker at the time. A friend of mine told me about Crossfit but it looked hard and scary. It took me over a year but in 2010 I finally went to the local Crossfit, Crossfit North Fulton, and never looked back!
