Personal growth can be a never ending journey but that is a choice each of us will make throughout our lives. With different seasons of life come new turns and transitions of growth... if you so choose!
We are in this world and on this ride of life together. I believe there is the possibility for infinite love and happiness when we can help each other grow and evolve individually. You never know how long you will be apart of someone's journey so why not be a catalyst for theirs. To be a catalyst for your neighbor means getting to know them, challenging them, and most importantly supporting them on THEIR journey.
I challenge you to find one person in your life, go get coffee and talk about your dreams together. Share your fears about this goal, share the joy it may bring you, and discuss how you can start or continue full-filling this dream. Experience the power of SHARING and be a catalyst for your neighbor!

From the outside looking in CrossFit can appear to be some crazy exercise program for only those that are already athletic and fit. But what if I told you the life changing benefits from jumping into CrossFit have nothing to do with fitness... Would you believe me?
CrossFit is challenging, CrossFit has new and foreign movements, CrossFit will push you outside YOUR comfort zone, and most importantly CrossFit has a supportive community ready to pick you up. Life will give us all of these experiences and then some... want to get better at doing life? PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. CrossFit allows for a space that you can practice from where YOU are at this very moment in your life and help usher you into the person you want to become. The possibilities are only limited be your own imagination!
CrossFit has the power to develop people from the inside-out... these are the profound transformations I love encouraging. It is insanely inspiring to watch someone uncover their own power that lies within and then act on it in all aspects of their life & dreams. CrossFit appears to be a fitness program but fitness is merely the medium in which YOU can become a stronger, more empowered INDIVIDUAL!!

How much time each day do you take to work on you... to acknowledge and develop your deepest desires?
We live in a world where we are bombarded with all kinds of options, advertising, and framing of what society thinks you should be and do. Growing up and living in a world like this it is easy to lose sight of YOU! Without the true understanding of YOU, how much happiness and fulfillment are you capable of? I believe the journey of self-discovery is the path to ultimate happiness and peace in your life. This doesn't mean life will be perfect but at least you can give yourself a chance to experience the abundance life has to offer.
There have been three main teachers for me in this process of finding myself and understanding the desires that live in my heart. They are meditation, daily gratitudes, and DO. In meditation I have started my journey using Headspace and reading a book called A Gradual Awakening by Stephen Levine. These two practices have given me the foundation of my learning into understanding mindfulness and ultimately understand how to listen and work through the millions of thoughts running through my mind. The more time I spend in this practice the better I get at hearing, acknowledging, and understanding MY internal voice. The next teacher for me has been daily gratitudes. This is a simple yet insanely powerful practice. I simply write down in a notebook 5 ideas in or around my life that I am grateful for. I believe doing this with pen and paper makes it all the more power in truly recognizing how incredible life is and the insane abundance life has to offer. The final item for me has been the DO. This doesn't need much explanation, just try/do the things in your heart that make you feel complete. Everything you go for in life may not be a success but I am learning more and more that life has so much more to offer in the journey of trying, failing, and succeeding.
As a coach, athlete, and human my goal is to continue this journey I have set out for and share it with the people around me. This is what I love to do. I am passionate about helping others see the power within them and how that can manifest in their life! We all deserve to share in the beauty of this life we have been given, let's enjoy it to the fullest.
Stay committed to YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR LEARNING, YOUR MIND and you will ultimately SET YOUR SOUL ON FIRE!
