    Tim played lots of sports growing up and has a lifelong love of soccer.  After graduating from school it took him a while to find something he could stick to but in the summer of 2010 he decided to take the leap to CrossFit and stick with it. He enjoys the constant variation and challenge that it provides as well as the traceable results. After participating in CrossFit for a few years, Tim decided he would like to share his love of CrossFit by getting his Level 1 and becoming a trainer. Training others has been an amazing and fun challenge that has helped him grow as a person and athlete. For Tim there aren’t many things in this world better than watching a client/friend realize how capable they are!  If not at the gym, you will likely find Tim camping, hiking, mountain biking, or snowboarding.
