Good things come to those who are willing to work for them. It doesn’t matter your age, gender, genetics, size, etc.. No one has exemplified that greater than this young man.

I have never been around a kid with as much drive or passion to get better as Mike.

Mike has been with me a really long time. I remember training the little guy shown in the first picture when he was in AI. He built a base level of athleticism there and then decided he wanted to compete in CrossFit.

The choice will always be his and I will always support him in whatever he wants to do. As long as he wants this, I’ll be here to help him along his way. If he ever wants to try something else, I’ll be there to support too.

Effort earns respect. Regardless of his age, he has earned mine.

From young and not sure about fitness/training to the guy you see Overhead Squatting 315# (in the video) and finishing 5th in the WORLD in the CrossFit Open 16-17 year old division, his story is one of hard work and dedication.

The journey is just starting and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it!
