My whole life I have struggled to keep the weight off and could never find the right diet, or exercise program that would help me be the person I always wanted to be. In 2008 I weighed about 330-340 lbs. Sure I was going to the gym using traditional training methods, and diets, but I was not getting the results I was looking for.
A group of friends from the local globo gym introduced me to CrossFit, and my life was forever changed. After my first WOD (workout of the day) I knew CrossFit was for me. You see, the workout reminded me of what my coaches ran me through when I was a kid; pushing my limits, and expecting nothing but the best effort I could give into every workout. CrossFit changed me both physically and mentally. I wanted to share it with everyone and anyone willing to listen.
In 2009 I became CrossFit Level 1 Certified, and began to teach classes at the box (AKA gym) I started my very first CrossFit journey. In September of 2011 I decided to go and train our family in my own garage, and it wasn't long thereafter that the people with which I shared my story with began to come, and train with us. In April of 2012 we became affiliated and officially naming ourselves CrossFit OTS3- Only The Strong Shall Survive.
Even though I have had a successful career in the corporate world for over 17 years, my true passion is helping others. I am a proud father of four boys, and I am dedicated to improving the fitness and health of the community of Keller and the surrounding areas. I cannot wait to share with you the benefits from what CrossFit and Advocare has done for our family and our community.
