I have a few loves in my life:
My wife, my family, powder skiing, and CrossFit New England. I have been coaching fitness for over 15 years, and have never been apart of something as special as what we have at CFNE. I wake up everyday and get to do exactly what I love most in life; coach amazing people. The members of CFNE – from the kids, to the competitive athletes, to the grandmothers, to those looking to loose 100 lbs.- inspire me to be a better person. One of my benchmarks for success and a happy life is to be able to blur the line between work and play, and I can say with 100% certainty that owning and coaching at CFNE has done just that.
