What does CrossFit Utica mean to you?

To me it means a safe place where you can workout in a friendly competitive atmosphere. In addition, a place where you get a great workout but also make lifelong friends in the process. 

Favorite Exercise?

I have got a few but my top two have got to be muscle ups and double unders

What do you do when you aren't whipping people into shape?

I am either home playing video games or binge watching Netflix. I also like hanging out with friends and going to pizza boys or other local hangout spots. 

Who do you look up to and why?

I look up to my parents a lot because they have shown me that through hard work and patience I can get through and do anything I set my mind to. 

Guilty Indulgence?

Haha. Honestly, whatever I can get my hands on. I love all kinds of foods, but if I had to pick I would go with chicken wing dip.

We know you have a deep love for superheroes, so...If you were a superhero who would it be and why?

I would definitely Dead Pool, aka the Merc with the mouth. I think we have a lot in common. Also, I love his attitude and ability to regenerate.

What is your secret to success?

Training hard and remembering that practice makes perfect. Training the little things so the bigger things are perfect or as close to it as they can be, as well as never being afraid to try something new or different.
