I guess you can call me a Greenville boy. I was born here, spent a few years in Oklahoma, and have been back in Greenville since 1998. Thankfully, I was taught from an early age to be active. I grew up playing Soccer, Baseball and Basketball, and I also ran track. While I was in High School, I lifted weights with my friends, and then I went through my running phase in college. I found CrossFit when I met back up with Casey and Esther after we all had left Oklahoma at different times.
So my first CrossFit workout was an eye-opening experience (Casey and I still laugh about it today). I got wiped out and was on the floor for about 30 minutes. I had gotten sedentary since I started working and it showed. I kept coming back, and I got better. I started doing things that I didn’t think I’d ever do. Since I started at Rekkr, I’ve ran multiple Spartan Races (so much cold water), learned some gymnastics, found Olympic lifting (my new favorite), and a lot more. There may be many things that you think you can’t do; stop by Rekkr and let us help you become better than you ever thought you could be!
