I started CrossFit in 2010. I wanted to give it a try at the time to continue my weight loss journey. But what really made me stick with it was the variety of exercises and movement and the community built around CrossFit. I became a coach in 2013 because I love helping people improve and I’ve always had a love for teaching/coaching. I love CrossFit because of the simplicity of coming in, doing the work assigned to you to the best of your ability and the amazing the results you’ll see. I think what keeps me and most people coming back to CrossFit for years is the community it builds. Being surrounded by like-minded people, pushing themselves physically and mentally day after day builds a bond that’s hard to describe to anyone outside of CrossFit. The thing I love the most about coaching is the community. All the different skill and ability levels coming together no matter what the workout for the day is and giving it their all. If you ask Coach Brandon what his favorite CrossFit WOD is, he would say, “DT! Love me some heavy barbell!”
