Coach G

I found CrossFit right before my initial training up for 19D Recon school. I was tired of my old routine in the gym and saw a video of one of the early CrossFit games. Athletes were climbing up ropes, running through obstacles, lifting heavy objects, and I knew then and there that this was going to get me through. I have been doing Crossfit now for around 4 years and love it even more now that I coach. Crossfit prepares you for just about anything that you may encounter and I love it. I have the honor of not only training Cavalry Scouts in the Army National Guard but the people of CrossFit 2st. I consider the two very similar because seeing athletes and soldiers persevere to accomplish new heights is astounding. The environment in which we operate in is very fluid and preparing yourself to handle any variables through CrossFit is best way to train, in my opinion. Currently I am in school at Gywnedd Mercy University seeking my BSN. Still serving proudly in Alpha Troop 1-104 CAV 28ID.
