I am a coach and an athlete, but more importantly I am determined to make an impact in this world through fitness. My repeated failures and the lessons they yield define who I am in all aspects of my life. My goals include: securing a spot on an NPGL team, making regionals by 2016, and becoming a member of the one percent that walk into the Stub Hub Center known as a Crossfit Games Athlete. Ambition coupled with an unquenched thirst for greatness fuel me each training day. "What is Rich doing?" is more than just a saying to me; it is a constant reminder that anyone can be good, but only the select few can be great.
