My CrossFit journey started in 2013 when a good friend of mine asked me if I wanted to try a new workout that was different than anything I had ever done. The WOD: “Murph”…. Not knowing anything about it, I jumped at the opportunity. When I crawled across the finish line an hour later, I was humbled beyond belief. While lying on the ground collecting myself,, my friend came over and laughingly said “welcome to CrossFit!” From that day forward I was hooked. Not until I tackled “Murph” I have never been pushed that hard for that long in my life. Like all the WODs it was tough, but the reward of knowing you pushed yourself to the limit and survived is the most gratifying feeling I’ve ever felt. Growing up and playing sports year round from an early age, fitness and wellness have always been at the forefront of my life. I played competitive sports through high school and college, and post-college competed at the pro level in wakeboarding and have competed in CrossFit the last 3 years, placing in the top 100 in the South Central region. I weight trained in a globo-gym most of my athletic career, but after doing CrossFit for 3 years, I am now healthier and in better shape than I was the past 12 years of the normal weight training at globo-gyms. I can say without a doubt that CrossFit has changed my life, and by being a coach at Eximo CrossFit, I hope to be able to instill the passion and drive for fitness that CrossFit has blessed me with. CrossFit is a journey of many steps; the hardest part is taking the first one!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been infatuated with being active and getting outside, despite growing up with Houston humidity I played every sport I could in high school, played collegiate athletics, and tried to stay active after I graduated, but quickly got bored with globo-gyms and workout videos. Then I heard about CrossFit. The expense shocked me at first, but when I realized how much I was spending on things that didn’t add value to my life, I decided to make a shift and spend it on something that would. So, I started. At first I was intimidated, but after my first few workouts I was completely hooked. I realized I was looking forward to WODs, rearranging my entire schedule to ensure that time was squeezed in somewhere. And now that I’m 3 years into my CrossFit journey, I still can’t pinpoint my favorite part…the intensity, the challenge, personal accomplishments, making and meeting goals, the never-ending journey to improving and shaping myself, being the healthiest and fittest I’ve ever been in my life…or is it the amazing camaraderie, the undying support from other members, the feeling of family, community, friendship…I can’t pick just one. And it doesn’t stop in the box…I’m also gaining confidence to check goals off my bucket list: half marathon. Check. Tough Mudder. Check. Team Marathons, multiple other 5Ks, and mud runs. Check. These are the characteristics that embody Eximo Crossfit and make it such an enormous part of our lives. My hopes and goals as an owner and trainer are to welcome all of you into those scary doors and help you find that missing piece in your life, even if you don’t know it yet. That’s what crossfit has done for me, and I thought I was just going in to workout a few times a week…but it’s so much more than that. I challenge you to take that step…make the move into the unknown, give it everything you’ve got, and hold on tight…your journey is just beginning!

In 2012 I stumbled across a building in a shopping strip, next to a donut shop(no kidding), with the simple words “Crossfit” on it. After driving by it several times a week I finally decided to drop in and see what it was all about. The owner gave me a brief explanation and invited me to participate in what was called their Essentials class which went over some basic Crossfit core movements. The class was an hour long, using really light weight and covered things like the squat, deadlift, kettle bell swing and wall balls. Having spent several years working on being a professional eater, this very basic “essentials” class had me sore from head to toe for like 2 weeks!!! I decided I needed the soreness and to get my fat butt back in some sort of shape. I started off with just a few days a week and after about 90 days I was hooked and ready to add more days a week to my workout schedule. I’ve tried all the “chain gyms” and always ended up wasting months and months of membership dues. Crossfit is different. There is accountability, camaraderie, community, competition(with yourself or your buddy) and you have a personal coach/cheerleader/motivator at every class. After a year of doing Crossfit I decided I wanted to become a coach and help others achieve their highest fitness potential. I have been a Level 1 coach since 2013 and love every opportunity I get to work with members on their Crossfit journey. The Eximo Crossfit family is one of a kind and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else! I have been a member at several boxes and this is where I am supposed to be!! My wife Rachel, my two oldest, and my now 65 year old mom are also members here with me at Eximo! They all love it and I couldn’t be more proud of them all! I tell everyone that asks about Crossfit, it’s not for everyone but ANYONE can do it! Come join us here at Eximo and experience the heights of where your fitness journey will take you!!

I’ve always been an active person since I can remember. I played team sports as a kid, playing baseball from the time I was 5 until about the age of 13. I’ve been fishing and hunting since I could practically walk, and wakeboarding has been, and still is, a huge part of my life today. That actually leads into the story of how I got into CrossFit. I started CrossFit in December of 2013, at the end of the wakeboard season for that year. I wanted to stay in shape over the winter while it was too cold to ride my board. My fellow wakeboarding friend and now owner of Eximo CrossFit, Brett, told me he had just started this thing called CrossFit not that long ago, and that he was really enjoying it. I was skeptical to try it at first because, although I had been active in my life, I had very little experience with lifting weights or being in any sort of gym for that matter. Brett Told me that I would be coached to do all the movements the correct way, and that I didn’t need to be worried about being inexperienced. Once I finally started, I became hooked very fast. I am a very competitive person by nature, almost to the point that it a problem, so when I started working out and was getting beat by everyone, I was chomping at the bit to get better. I started seeing results quicly, and that fueled me even more to keep pursuing CrossFit. I soon became obsessed with making myself better in every way I could, and watching results come from all the hard work I put in, and the rest is history.

Brett and his wife Kim decided that they wanted to start their own gym and I couldn’t have been more excited for it and lucky to be a part of it. They’ve created an amazing gym and have been lucky enough to obtain the members to match. I recommend CrossFit and expecially Eximo to anyone and everyone who has thought about trying it. Chances are, you’ll get hooked. How many place can you go to to get really fit, and also meet some great people, and make friendships that could last a lifetime?

A little more about me that everyone likes to point out a lot, is that I’m the baby of the group. By a considerable amount of years. We won’t discuss exact numbers to prevent anyone’s feelings from getting hurt! I am currently a student at the University of Houston getting my degree in Kinesiology: Exercise Science, and just a good ole boy from Pearland, Texas. I’m also an avid ping pong player, so if anyone is up to take a loss in a game of table tennis, just come let me know!

I was introduced to CrossFit in 2015 by the owner of the company I was working for. We did home based care for the sick and elderly so I got a glimpse into what life was like at different stages and how life/health choices affected it. As much as I loved taking care of my clients I knew I needed to do something in my life, or I would end up needing someone to help me too. I was never very active or sporty growing up, and as an adult would only frequent the rec center every now and then. However I had no idea what I was doing. That’s when my friend invited me to watch her compete in an all-women’s competition to raise awareness for breast and ovarian cancer. I was in awe of all the amazing women. They were so strong and even though it was a competition they were all cheering each other on. I was blown away by what I was seeing and I wanted to be a part of it!
My husband had gone with me and was just as amazed as I was and wanted to try it too. He found a box right up the street from our house and signed us up for a free trial class. I don’t remember what the WOD was but I do remember doing 4 rounds and almost passing out. I sat on the curb in the back of the gym trying not to puke and once I got myself together I signed up for the first on ramp class they had! I was hooked!
After about a year I had gone to every extra clinic, every endurance class, every weight lifting class and had started focusing on my nutrition when the gym owner asked me if I was interested in coaching… ummm, heck yeah!!! Even though I was working 40+ hours a week at my other job I knew I wanted to do this. I got my L1 in January of 2017 and can’t learn enough about CrossFit and everything that goes along with it. Once I found out that my husband needed to relocate for work I knew I wanted to shift my career from caring for the sick to preventing them from getting sick in the first place. I couldn’t be more excited for this new journey in health and fitness with my new family at Eximo!
