A Message From Tim:

tim2 (2)I have competed at several different levels in a few different sports over the years, and enjoyed them all. Finding something that pushes you to develop your mind and body, as well as your character, is a goal worth pursuing. CrossFit has afforded me the opportunity to once again test myself in a new ways and provides an arena for these tests on a daily basis.
