A Message From Tim: 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 new ways and provides an arena for these tests on a daily basis.
As a lifelong athlete, I have learned the value of team training and working toward common goals. Ups and downs, gains, plateaus and setbacks are all part of the process. Stay humble in victory (gains,PRs), re-focus and identify areas of opportunity in defeat (plateaus, setbacks). If you need any help, ask! You can find me coaching group classes, and am also available for 1-on-1 sessions or small group training if you are looking to achieve a specific goal. From high school athletes looking to get a leg-up on their competition, to the avid runner struggling to gain lean muscle mass, to retirees seeking to gain greater range of motion and more energy for the everyday demands of life; I have truly enjoy the bonds formed while overcoming the different challenges presented by each individual with whom I have worked in these settings.
Stay healthy my friends.
