My background in sport and fitness goes back to when I was kid. I played a lot of different sports, Tennis, Fencing, Soccer, etc.. but there was only one that I fell in love with, baseball. Started at the age of 8 and played until I graduated from High School. This sport taught me discipline and teamwork. Wasn’t too long after I finished my career as a baseball player that I found CrossFit, introduced to me by a friend. I spend so much time at the gym that Jhon (Head Coach) gave me the opportunity to intern and help around. That was when I found my passion for coaching and helping others improve their lives. Took seminars and learn a lot from the other coaches, I became a CrossFit Level 1 Coach, I also got certified as a Running Coach by Pose Method and Gymnastic Coach. Furthermore, my experience as an athlete has helped me too, I competed in several local Crossfit competitions placing 3rd in one of them. I’m always trying to learn more and improve myself as a coach, I’m looking forward to taking the Crossfit Level 2 certification and level 2 Gymnastics certification .
