Michael started Crossfitting at the beginning of 2012 on his own and immediately was hooked on the style of training that Crossfit provided–constantly varied, functional, never boring and always challenging. Before Crossfit, Michael never “lifted” weights, except for some dumbbells and other typical machine assisted exercises you would find at your local “Global Gym.” He never attempted a one rep maximum, never squatted, never deadlifted, and he sure didn’t know what a Snatch was! With weightlifting being new to Michael, he quickly forged a passion for technique and movements. Ultimately, that led to the pursuit of his USA Weightlifting Level 1 certification under Sean Waxman.
