It was in 2006 while serving in the Air Force that I first learned of CrossFit, but it wasn’t until 2008 after I had returned to Lafayette that I pursued it exclusively. Crystal & I began training in our garage and in late 2009, I began training my family, friends and athletes out of that home garage gym. That experience cultivated a deep desire to share CrossFit with as many people as possible and CrossFit Uncommon was the result. Early on, I was very involved in the sport of CrossFit from competing locally to judging at the CrossFit Games Regionals. This involvement to help the sport grow continues at Uncommon by participating in the CrossFit Open. Every year a majority of our members participate in the Open, which runs for 5 weeks in the Spring. This gives our members an opportunity to come together to support each other and compete.
I enjoy working with athletes and beginners alike and I fully believe that CrossFit is for all people and that the pursuit of true fitness positively affects all aspects of life.
