OWNER / GM / HEAD COACH

Ever since I was a young lad, I was drawn to movement. I enjoyed all sports growing up, playing baseball, swimming, and soccer. I went on to play lacrosse and football in high school, but would say yes to anything competitive. As an adult, I even delved into roller hockey, basketball, indoor soccer, church league softball, and even a tortuous Go Ruck challenge.

I graduated from High Point University with a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management, with minor in recreation. My business experience with sports ranged from marketing at Greensboro Generals minor league hockey to equipment staff for the Baltimore Ravens. I followed traditional “globo gym” routines for a number of years, with a roller coaster of results.

I discovered Crossfit through a Marine friend and have not turned back from there. If I was not trying a new WOD, I was watching youtube about Crossfit, I was obsessed. I became immersed in all things CrossFit , while continuing my sales profession, not realizing that this newfound obsession would become what defines me. I previously worked starting up 2 CrossFit gyms for other owners in Charlotte and and am pumped to be an owner of CF Meck.

I now understand more about the importance of a balanced life through my variety of career and exercise experiences. With fitness, one can live more fully, be a better father, better friend, and better trainer – enabling others to find their own greatness.
