I started CrossFitting on April 7th, 2013 and to say it changed my life would be my life's greatest understatement to this point. For most of my existence I have been a competitive athlete with intermittent bouts of slothfulness. Gaining and losing weight like it was my life's calling. When I found CrossFit, it reignited my competitive nature, which had been lying dormant for quite a while. It took an additional two years of busting my butt, for me to figure out that my diet was the biggest factor that determined my weight/body composition. I think the biggest game changer for me was the documentary "Fed Up"... but that's a whole other story. In the summer of 2014 I left my teaching and coaching position at a local private school to pursue the awesomeness I know as CrossFit. Nikki Goldin hired me on to general manage her two boxes, CrossFit 1525 and 1526. It was the next step for pursuing a pipe dream of owning a box one day. I first had to figure out if I could run one (or two). Fast forward a year and a half of developing tremendous friendships and working relationships to the end of 2015. Nikki was wanting to sell 1526 so she could focus on the one original, bigger 1525 and we were looking for buyers. One day Val said to me, "And why are we not buying 1526?" and I didn't have a response for her.
So we took a leap of faith and a tremendous outpouring of support and encouragement from those we call family and here we have it. We're business owners.
At this point in the game if you come into the box, the likelihood that we will meet is incredibly high. I coach a lot of classes because... that's what you do when you start a business. I am most definitely a work in progress as far as running a business goes, but I absolutely love (most) people and am incredibly passionate about helping people figure out how to live their version of a healthy lifestyle. CrossFit is, in my opinion, the most effective and efficient way to become More Capable.
The lessons that can be learned in the box mimic what I remember coaching on the fields, which I constantly correlated to life.
Come on over and visit us, consider joining our community, I feel confident in saying it is well on it's way to becoming one of the best, most inclusive, and strongest in Houston.
