After I graduated from high school in 2009 I started working out and was doing the "normal" gym stuff and following bodybuilding style workouts. My older brother had been doing Crossfit and I first heard about it from him. Finally, in 2013 I was able to try Crossfit for the first time after my mom got me a Groupon for Crossfit Oconee. After the first workout I was hooked and have been ever since. In 2016 I was asked if I wanted to earn my Crossfit Level 1 and become a coach for Crossfit Oconee to which I said yes immediately! Crossfit Oconee has been a huge part of my wife and I's life since 2013 when we both started. Being at the gym and around the members is like being at home with family for me.
