Founder / Box Owner, Coach

I have always had a keen interest in competitive team sports leading me to thrive in playing club and school soccer which I played through college and coached at the high school and U-19 levels, as well as playing basketball and baseball through high school. It was through sport that I learned the value of teamwork, camaraderie, discipline, and hardwork.

It was in coaching where I gained an appreciation and pure joy from helping others achieve goals and pushing themselves beyond barriers that seemed unbreakable. That same passion continues as I watch those I work with hit a PR, correct a lift, meet and exceed their goals, and make life changes that may have once seemed insurmountable. This is the reason Rockingham CrossFit exists.

I truly believe that the common thread binding us all together is the desire to fulfill our God-given potential and have fun while we are doing it. For those who are committed to the journey will discover a more healthy, happy, and productive life.

Founder/Box Owner, Coach

Throughout my life I have had a passion for improving people. Whether that was coaching kids basketball, martial arts, or forging the paths and careers of young Sailors as a Senior Chief during my 23 years with the U.S. Navy.

My first CrossFit workout was during a deployment in 2012, when I was introduced to “Murph”. This workout proved itself to be one of the hardest workouts I had ever done in my life. Six months after deployment, I had gained a lot of weight, and became severely out of shape. Remembering that workout, I found a local CrossFit box and never looked back.

Now in my mid-40’s, I am in the best physical and mental shape that I have ever been in. My natural leadership abilities, passion for teaching, and love of CrossFit have made for a natural transition to gym ownership with my best friend Aaron.

My ultimate goal is to take goal-oriented, hard working individuals and bring them into a community that supports each other, and helps each other reach their goals – in fitness and in life.

From a young age playing town league soccer and t-ball, to junior league ice hockey in the IJHL and collegiate men’s rugby in NERFU, the majority of my life has been spent participating in competitive and recreational sports. The sport of CrossFit was introduced to me in 2013, and in my 20+ years of sports, I’ve never been more passionate about a sport. Competition aside, I undoubtedly value the unrestricted benefits of regularly training in CrossFit for an individual’s health and wellness more. But my favorite part about this sport is the incredible CrossFit community.

Having recently become a father to my daughter Olivia Jane, I’m further driven by the mentality to reinforce a truly healthy, happy and positive lifestyle. It’s a continuous aspiration of mine to be the best version of myself every single day – for my family. They are my everything.

Outside of CrossFit, I have a background in Mechanical Engineering and Project Management. Other passions of mine include: the outdoors and anything with a motor thats loud and fast.

I grew up never being into sports, or even having the drive for anything competitive. I never thought that I would one to head to the gym everyday, or ever.

I went to college in Boston for Media Arts & Animation; after college, my sister dragged me to a CrossFit class (as is the same for so many CrossFitters). The rest, as they say, is history – I was hooked.

Now, I am at the gym pretty much everyday. Not only for the health benefits, but because of the amazing community. I work during the day for an airline, but after work is my favorite part of the day, when I can head to the gym and hear about everyone’s day.

CrossFit has made me more confident in my abilities as a human. Being able to say that I can lift twice my body weight off the floor, or back squat the weight of a large man is a pretty amazing thing to discover about yourself.

My fellow athletes became my family. I met my best friends in this environment of working hard, pushing each other, and now I am privileged to be apart of their gym. They keep me in check and keep me going, and we have a blast along the way!

I love the combination of gymnastics and weightlifting. I love the people, and I love the challenge.

Coach

CrossFit for me is the culmination of 20 years spent as a gym rat, a body builder, a power lifter, an endurance runner, a cyclist and eventually a student of functional training. My foundation in functional training began with flipping tires, dragging cars across parking lots, swinging sledge hammers, throwing kegs, moving atlas stones, sprinting hills, carrying yokes and lifting strongman logs. I was certainly aware
of the CrossFit subculture within the fitness circles I already occupied but only insofar as to pull back the curtain and take a peak; however one fateful afternoon in fall the allure baited me up the side stairs of a basically unmarked warehouse into my first “box” and as the almost universal experience goes…….I was hooked.

The challenge was endless, the workouts were endlessly difficult and I had as many doubts as I had breakthroughs. It was immersive, physically demanding and relentlessly humbling; but those characteristics create the culture of amazing people I’ve met along the way. It’s immensely fulfilling to be able to see fresh faces squeamishly open the side door of a basically unmarked warehouse and be
able to become a pivotal part of their journey as a coach, hopefully a mentor and absolutely a friend.

The substantial impact CrossFit has made in my life is the reason why my ultimate mission as a coach is to dedicate an endless effort in providing the opportunity of insight I had the experience in receiving, to anyone willing to begin their training journey.
Coming from a family of 8, my siblings and I were all very active from a young age, participating in a wide range of different athletics and fitness atmospheres had become an integral part of my life. By age 15 I began weightlifting, and after the many years of repetition and complete predictability in my workouts, the unbearable reality of being stuck in a plateau happened. I was certain my passion for fitness was still present within me, and my competitive nature was too determined to let this roadblock stop me. I continued to push through my workouts only to be left with an overall feeling of being unsatisfied every time.
During this time in my life, a friend suggested I join them in a CrossFit session, and from that road on, my passion for working out again finally had its light shed back. My standard gym lacked all the unique aspects CrossFit provided me with, and being able to experience it and not dream of it anymore, gave me a feeling of euphoria. The community, friendships, and overall encouraging atmosphere had left me implemented with the true depth in phrases such as “Do it! Don’t give up! You will never know what you are capable of until you try! You are NOT your failures! Keep going! ” This influential outlook I’ve obtained from CrossFit has changed my life in the most unimaginable ways and not only from a physical level but from a mental and spiritual level as well.
It has led me with the capability to achieve any goal I set even if a countless number of approaches is required; as well as face any obstacles in my daily life because the instilled drive within me makes it fully possible.
By stepping out of my comfort zone I found I have only been positively affected by the deep-rooted principles and possibilities that CrossFit holds. I took the personal action of becoming a coach in the hopes of passing this drive on to as many as I can, and to promote the understanding that being your best, not the best, is one of the most crucial goals for one to obtain.

I first joined CrossFit with one of my sons and quickly fell in love with it.  Not long after, my husband joined us and our lives began to change for the better.  We became stronger both physically and mentally, and our relationship was strengthened.  CrossFit has brought us so much happiness and the community at RCF is amazing.
Over the years, I have always wanted to try new things, push the boundaries of what is possible, and encourage others to do the same.  I believe that if you set your mind to something, there is always a way to achieve your goals.  Through hard work, creative problem solving, and community support, anything is possible.


Becoming a coach was a natural progression for me.  I have a genuine desire to encourage people and help them succeed.  Nothing makes me happier than to see others gain the strength and confidence necessary to reach their goals.  I have been blessed to witness the transformation of so many and how it has changed their lives for the better.  


When I’m not doing CrossFit, I love spending time with my wonderful husband and four children.  I also run a small farm, including dairy goats, chickens, and ducks.  When I have free time, I enjoy building furniture and tackling various home projects.  CrossFit has had a positive impact on all areas of my life.  Not only have I gained strength and confidence, but I have gained an amazing community of friends.
