16668_627509525192_28530417_nI was born November 25, 1987 in Riverside, California. Sports and physical activity have always been a huge part of my life. Baseball has always been my biggest passion. I played baseball at Green Valley High School and my ability helped me earn a scholarship to the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky. I played there one year and transferred to UNLV to focus more on my studies. While attending UNLV, I was only going to school and I felt I had a major hole in my life. I realized that I missed baseball and wanted to play at least one more year. I moved to Irvine, California where I walked on to the baseball team and went to school at Concordia University. My goal was to be on a team one more time and fill the emptiness I had in my life at that time.

After finishing the season I realized that I had just a few more classes to graduate, so I made the smart decision to transfer back to UNLV to get my degree in Kinesiology with a focus in Fitness Management. Once I got my Bachelor’s degree from UNLV, I worked hard and received my personal training certification through the National Council of Strength and Fitness. I quickly got a job at 24-Hour Fitness where I worked for 2 years as a level 2 998745_602652009852_1020391331_ntrainer. It is 24-Hour Fitness where I discovered my passion for group fitness. Along with my business partner, we established Sin City Bootcamp and focused on intense training with large groups of people. At this point, I discovered CrossFit. I would constantly train myself and my clients with this style of functional training, but we weren't affiliated through CrossFit, so we technically couldn't market our business with CrossFit. I loved CrossFit so much and believed in the principles it taught, so I attended the CrossFit level 1 trainer seminar and became a certified coach.

In November 2014, my family and I purchased equipment, a facility and became an official affiliate with CrossFit as “CrossFit ToolBox”. The rest is history!
