I am a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor and a CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer. Coming to this sport late in life, I am proof that you’re never too old to start your fitness journey and that there are incredible positive mental and physical benefits experiences that CrossFit opens the door to. CrossFit has not only increased my physical fitness level but it has helped my regain my self-confidence and sense of adventure. I started CrossFit as a diversion from a toxic work environment; after a few months of CrossFit, I found myself applying mental techniques that I used to get through WODs to my workday. I decided to become a coach because I wanted to share my enthusiasm for CrossFit, to continue to grow our community while maintaining the standards CrossFit is known for, and to be the best ambassador for this lifestyle as possible. I also want to reach-out to the (growing) market of +50 year olds and show them this is a viable fitness regime that will allow them to have a healthier and more enriched lifestyle.
Nathan began CrossFit as a means to begin a healthy life. Spending countless hours at a local gym trying to gain strength and stamina, all the work produced minimal results. Curious about high intensity functional movements he found a trial for a new routine called CrossFit. He signed up, attended his first class, and after 3,2,1 STOP there was an addicting feeling of adrenaline, fatigue and accomplishment. He was hooked on the first 12 minute AMRAP.
Forwarding to the present, Nathan is a CrossFit L-1 Trainer, who strives to provide a positive learning experience with a unique energy and flair in each class. He believes that CrossFit movements truly translate to any sport, activity, or life endeavor.
