Ways to spend the off-season:

3) Home improvement projects with wife

Things about starting Clermont CrossFit with Rusty:

1) Working together and combining our ideas to make a hobby of ours into a business
2) Having the best workout partner. Trying to catch him in WOD’s makes me go harder, and I know he goes harder trying to not let me catch him, it has been a lot of fun!
3) We have an awesome gym to workout at whenever we want, and can bring all our friends when they want to come!
4) Meeting so many new people in our community, and watching their fitness improve is pretty amazing
5) Having another awesome job! Wakeboarding is an amazing job, and now I’m operating a CrossFit gym with my best friend in addition to riding…I feel pretty lucky!
