“I have been fortunate enough to own my own business and be my own boss. However, anyone can tell you I am many things before I am a business man. I’m an experienced and knowledgable exercise scientist and athlete with a passion for improving people’s overall well-being through physical excellence. I believe simple measured human movement with an infinitely scalable progression is the path to that physical excellence. CrossFit provides the tools necessary for obtaining physical excellence by way of a supportive community; well structured, physically demanding, task-oriented workouts; and a superior level of instruction focused on a balance of safety, motivation and most of all… Fun. At CrossFit Explode we don’t judge our success by numbers in a bank account. We judge success by our athlete’s performance numbers on a whiteboard. The standard of success is set by the those who know which numbers truly matter to count.”
