Paul’s Crossfit career started way back on 07/22/2008 with the benchmark workout Nancy (5 Rounds for time – 400 m run and 15 overhead squats with a #45 bar). After he was done he was immediately hooked. After that first workout Paul immersed himself in the Crossfit culture, going to classes every day and staying after to learn proper weightlifting form and work on bodyweight movement skills. Paul received his first Level 1 coaching certificate on September 9, 2009 and got re-certified on January 8, 2012. From 2009 until 2015 Paul has coached regional athletes, regional team members, future gym owners/coaches, and everyday athletes. On December 4, 2016 Paul received his Crossfit Level 2 certification in preparation for coaching at T2 Crossfit. “I felt that when you have the best programming, you need to have the best coaches to teach that programming.” Having competed in some of the first ever Crossfit sectionals and opens, Paul loves the competitive aspect of Crossfit and where it has progressed, but his passion will always be towards the everyday athlete who wants to be healthy and constantly improve themselves.
