Owning this affiliate with my friends and wife is the greatest opportunity I have to give back and I love doing it every day. Crossfit has given me all of my closest friends and even my wife. I learn everything I can about the body and what humans are truly capable of doing. I’d always been interested in movement and human performance as a hobby but the L1 really shot Oxygen on my embers. My first gym was CrossFit Asia in Okinawa and there I got my first level 1 in 2009. I started CrossFit in 2008 on a deployment. I taught myself the movements via CrossFit.com. I fell in love with it instantly and haven’t stopped talking about it since.
