I’m from Atlanta, GA and youth with a mission brought me to Kona.
I grew up and lived around the city. I always thought I wanted a condo right in the middle of a big city, but being here in Kona I love the small town feel. It’s great seeing friends and family around town and the slower pace of life on the Big Island. I started CrossFit when I was 41, overweight, unhealthy, depressed, and realized I may cut my life short if I didn’t do something about it. So I had some friends who were doing CrossFit and loved it, so I gave it a try!
I love CrossFit because of the community. People have challenged me to be a better person, kept me going when I wanted to give up, and I’ve met new friends in the local community. Ultimately, CrossFit has changed my life! I’ve gotten healthy, stronger, more energy, and found my love for coaching others. I do some other sports incuding: Professional water gun shooter, trampoline bouncer, rocket launcher, Mario cart player, ballet watcher, basically #dadlife. I do like Ultimate Frisbee though. My favorite places to eat on island are: Broke Da Mouth. Umekes, Splashers, Original Thai.
