BIO

Aaron was raised in Woodbridge, VA and graduated Longwood College with a degree in Business Administration. This is also where he met his wife, Megan. You might see her at the facility as well. They have an amazing son, Zachary, and a pretty good dog, Scout. Aaron found CrossFit in the fall of 2016. He had always lived an active lifestyle but had never found something that he was consistent with. CrossFit gave him the structure, intensity and community that had not been there in the past. He earned his CF-L1 in the summer of 2018. “CrossFit has been such a positive force in my life and I enjoy helping others to achieve similar success. I hope to continue my progress towards a healthier life and look forward to helping others do the same.”

Certifications

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

What I try to do is make the time the athletes are there fun and engaging.  It is their choice to come do something that many times is hard and uncomfortable.  I hope I am giving them the energy and guidance they need to come back the next day.

I really enjoyed seeing how others were seeing “gains”.  Confidence in body awareness, strength, endurance. I was seeing the same in myself and wanted to take it to the next level and see where that would take me. 

Not sure I have one specific movement, but I tend to enjoy and like the challenge of the gymnastics movements. 

It’s a tie between thrusters and any burpee that requires jumping on something.

I enjoy projects around the house.  Remodeling, upgrading, yardwork, etc.

You are there for you.  We keep track of times and weights so you can see your personal improvement not how you compare to others.
