Duncan will be substituting some CrossFit Classes for us the week of July 4th. Please get to know him, as he’s really excited to be filling in.
Like most people, I started doing CrossFit in late 2006 on my own in a globo-gym. Up until that time, I had been doing bodybuilder-style workouts and I learned in my high school weightlifting class in the 80′s. CrossFit opened up a whole new world of ideas (and proper form) to me, and helped me think about training in a whole new way.
With a renewed interest in functional movement at high intensity, I became a certified personal trainer. I wanted to help people get the most out their workouts by avoiding the biggest pitfalls of exercise: injury, lack of motivation, boredom, and (worst of all) enduring hours of hard work without seeing results. I believe a coach should be patient, supportive, knowledgeable, and focused on the client’s needs. It’s my goal to help clients look great, feel awesome, and unlock their amazing potential.
For the past 3 years, I coached at the world’s first CrossFit affiliate; Level 4 CrossFit Seattle. Before that, I worked for 4 years as manager and lead trainer at an exclusive West Seattle personal training studio, where I now direct programming and trainer development.
I’ve trained hundreds of clients in group and one-on-one, with every conceivable limitation, using CrossFit methods with great results. It’s a great feeling to help people accomplish their goals, and then help them reach for possibilities that were perhaps unthinkable.
