Least Favorite Lift/Movement: Overhead squat.

What are your proudest achievements? This summer, I participated in my first competition at Project Mayhem. I was a little apprehensive to compete because I was not on the same level as many of the top performing athletes. I was able to put that apprehension behind me and turned out to have an amazing time and rewarding experience.

Also, non-CrossFit related: I got married to my beautiful wife Leandra in July.

Name one goal and/or personal record you would like to accomplish through CrossFit? Complete a muscle up.

Any advice for someone thinking about trying CrossFit or someone who has just started? Just have fun and stay determined. It is very rewarding but you have to put in the work. Progress is tangible and easy to track and once you get rolling, the advances you can make are pretty amazing!
