  • What made you start CrossFit and what has kept you doing it? Has your motivation changed since you first started?

    I started CrossFit because I had just come down on recruiting orders and needed to look the part of a professional Soldier. I had let myself go after a recent deployment and needed to get back into fighting shape. I keep coming back for the early morning class at 0500 because I love how I feel and look now. My motivation has definitely increased with all the weight loss and strength I gained since committing whole-heartedly back in March.

  • What have you learned since joining the CrossFit St. Charles Family?

    I’ve learned that functional fitness is the future and that the people who go to our gym are truly great people!

  • What’s your favorite CrossFit moment?

    Favorite movement...hmmm... I’m not sure I have a favorite. But I do enjoy snatches, deadlifts, and cleans!

  • What impact has CrossFit had on you outside of the gym?

    CrossFit has helped me so much. It has taught me humility and how to be truly humble. It’s also given me a newfound love for fitness. I’ve lost 35 pounds and I’ve gained a ton of confidence!

  • What’s your next CrossFit goal(s) and how close are you to reaching it?

    My next CrossFit goal is to be able to consistently RX each WOD. I’m not quite there but getting closer every day.

  • What’s something we might not know about you yet?

    Something you might not know about me...I once applied for and had an interview to be on the TV show “Naked and Afraid”. However our daughter was born prematurely so I didn’t pursue it any farther.

  • What’s the CODY motto?

    My motto, “Do justice, walk humbly, love greatly”

  • Write us a WOD! What kinda movements do you love? What’s your favorite way to put in work?

    5 rounds for time: 100m farmer carry, 6 power cleans, 6 front squats, 6 power snatches. Cash-out with a 400m run
