I decided to start my own business after many life experiences that I believe have truly led me to where I am today.
In 2010, going into my senior year in high school I was diagnosed with cancer. This lost me an opportunity to play D1 college football, a career I thought was meant to be. This led me into another journey in fitness, health and wellness to and give me a different purpose in life.
During college I found a gym called CrossFit West Chester, and after 7 years I have never looked back. I will never forget the feeling of excitement and nervousness I had when I first walked in. I was immediately hooked on the community, the challenge and the opportunities to better myself.
Finding CrossFit lead me on a mission to become more educated and experienced so that I could inspire others to be excited about fitness and wellness. After years of finding opportunities in coaching, personal training and strength and conditioning I knew that I wanted to start my own career to create a community of like minded individuals about improving their health.
After I began my own personal training business “M.A.D Fitness and Performance” I knew it was not enough. This led me to seek the opportunity to open “CrossFit MFP”. I knew that this was my purpose in my life and career.
