Christian developed a curiosity and interest in breaking out of traditional gym training in early 2007. Knowing there was more to fitness than measuring results with a mirror and measuring tape, he discovered an obscure website, Crossfit.com and never looked back! Finally it all made sense! Training became extremely difficult, challenged physical ability, tested mental discipline, and results were measured by functional performance. He bought materials, like wood, rope, chains, and equipment such as Olympic rings, sleds, kettlebells, and trained with the CrossFit methodology in his garage. Then he met Matt, Scimone, Kate, and Katie and the rest is history! Christian currently holds the following Certifications; CrossFit Level 1, Risto Sports Soviet System Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit Competition Judge, IKFF CKT L1, IKFF CKT L2, and IKFF CBT.
