WELCOME OUR NEWEST COACH LAD RACK TO THE SKYLINE TEAM!!!!!
How did you get into CrossFit?
I got into crossfit when my wife and I wanted to try something different after years of yoga, running and swimming. I called a friend who is a crossfit coach and ended up at my first crossfit class in May of 2015 at the age of 38. I've since learned to love the intensity, gymnastics, barbells and generalized anxiety that I still experience when I'm warming up for a WOD.
Why do you want to coach CrossFit?
I want to be a coach because I have a passion for helping people heal. CrossFit is the physical manifestation of that passion for me.
What is your favorite part of CrossFit?
My favorite part of CrossFit is watching work capacity increase across broad time and modal domains. Since 2015 I've watched all my 1 rep max's go up; I've completed "Murph" and most of "the girls" in respectable fashion. I am more fit and healthy at 40 than I was at 30.
What is your athletic background and what certifications do you have?
I grew up swimming, playing soccer, backpacking and snowboarding. As an adult I've explored many sports. CrossFit feels like home for me and I hold the L1 CrossFit Training Certificate.
