Gary has been following CrossFit since 2008, when he was introduced to the training methodology during his time in the Marines. He used CrossFit as part of a routine to maintain his fitness for the Reserves. He began by picking workouts that took little to no equipment that could be performed without a gym. In 2012, after getting home from his third deployment, he first visited a CrossFit Affiliate gym and fell in love with the atmosphere and community. After seeing the incredible impact CrossFit made on his own life and others at the gym, he sought to make CrossFit an ongoing part of his life by becoming a coach. Gary has coached at multiple CrossFit gyms in the area while balancing his duties as a Marine Reservist and continuing his education.

I became CrossFit L-1 certified in 2015 and also hope to earn my L-2 certification soon. My passion is nutrition, especially how it can impact performance both in and out of the gym. I am the office manager for a local physical therapy clinic, Athletes' Potential, which allows me to see and learn first-hand valuable movement and mobility based exercises to apply to my coaching. I am currently pursuing a nutrition certification through Precision Nutrition, which will allow me to apply my passion for nutrition into the ability to help people reach their performance and aesthetics goals, as well as a healthy and realistic relationship with food. I got married to our endurance coach, Matthew, in March of 2018, and we live in Marietta with our two cats and step-son, Tyler. And, since I'm sure everyone wants to know... my favorite WOD is Diane.
