Thomas has been coaching since 2012. His passion for helping others is unrivaled in any coach you will meet. Thomas was a multi-sport athlete until the monotony of training alone in big box gyms turned him onto his current paradigm and coaching as a full time profession. Thomas is a CrossFit Level II certified strength and conditioning coach. When not training himself or training others, he's heavily involved in our Gaston House program we host for boys striving to achieve long term sobriety. You'll find him most off hours hanging with his dog, Scott.
