Here’s a little story, all about how… he got started in the Fitness biz!
I started my first gym job at the NAU Rec Center as a Weight Room Attendant back in 1997. Not too long after, I realized that I wanted to have a career in fitness. I got certified as a Personal Trainer in 2002, and became a full time trainer in 2003, and finally started my own business, Framework Fitness Training, in 2014. I then became the new owner of CrossFit FIXX in April of 2017.
I got my first taste of CrossFit back in 2005. I was working in a personal training studio, and one of the trainers came across the HQ website, crossfit.com. We got hooked and started doing the posted workouts with each other in the gym. I found that I started incorporating a lot of what CrossFit was doing into my own programs for clients. I was seeing great results in both my clients’, and my own, fitness.
My favorite thing about being a gym owner is watching people reach fitness levels that they didn’t think was ever possible. It makes it worthwhile knowing that I played a small part in helping someone live a happier and healthier life!
My first bright spot at FIXX, when I became owner, was that the entire coaching staff stayed on. Even the previous owners stuck around to help coach, continue working on their fitness, and help ensure a smooth transition at FIXX. That’s when I knew that FIXX was a special place for for a lot of people.
My personal fitness mantra has always been “workout to feel good”. When your body feels good and healthy, so will your attitude and outlook on life. It helps make everything else better!”
