I was introduced to Crossfit in the spring of 2011, and life has never been the same! Growing up in the Midwest, I lived in rural areas, living on farms and ranches, helping to build a strong work ethic and a big appetite. I never considered myself athletic, but I strove to to find a sport or activity I enjoyed which would help me stay healthy and keep me interested. Nothing stuck for more than a couple months at a time, and I was discouraged to say the least. My wife Dawna heard about this thing called CrossFit, and convinced me to come along…. hey, there was a place right down the road! I was hooked. At the time, I couldn’t have possibly realized how CrossFit Purgatory would change my life, but walking through that door was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Starting in 2012 I started using every extra minute to learn as much as possible when it comes to coaching, and taken every opportunity to practice and develop what I’ve learned. All that hard work paid off – and I am now pursuing my passion full time as the owner of the place where it all started, and loving every minute of it.
Being a part of the Purgatory community has been a blessing in my life in every way, and my mission is to share that experience with every person who walks through the door. It is a privilege to help others learn and grow into the best versions of themselves possible. Not sure you can do it? You can – I know because I’ve been there. We’re here to help you become stronger, faster, and better than you ever thought possible, whether you are working on your first push up or preparing for your toughest competition!
