I have been involved in CrossFit since 2010 when I discovered it while working as a Police Officer. I had been involved in physical fitness for over 15 years prior to finding CrossFit and thought that I was in top notch shape. Prior to CrossFit I was in the US Army where I served for 7 years as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division and with 1st SFG (Airborne)3rdBN(HSC). After leaving the military I served as Police Officer for 12 years. I worked as a Patrol Man, K9 handler, Patrol Sergeant, and Narcotics. I also spent several years on the SWAT team as an operator, rifle team member and as a SWAT team leader. During my years in both the Military and in Law Enforcement I was involved with leading and training some form of physical fitness. I started coaching CrossFit classes in 2011 and in 2014 my wife and I took over CrossFit FMS. With the support of my wife I left the police department and pursued my passion of CrossFit full time.
