I was born in 1993 into a small farm town on the Virginia/North Carolina border. Hard work and discipline were bred into me from a very young age. As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed physical work, spending most of my time out in the woods, and finding new ways to push myself. For the majority of my life, I have been involved in sports in some manner; Football, Swimming, and Baseball. If there is one message that I have picked up from my life thus far it's this... "You don't always have to be the most talented but you can NEVER stop learning and you can NEVER quit if you want to achieve anything."

I have always been a very active person. Ever since I was a kid, I have always HATED sitting still. My mom used to have to tell me to get up from the dinner table, run a lap around the yard, and then I can come back and finish my dinner. I just couldn't and still can't sit still. This was further amplified when I started taking sports seriously. I was hooked on what I could achieve with the gifts that God blessed me with. Even if I wasn't the most talented on the field, no one would outwork me. I found CrossFit in 2015 and up until that point in my life, I had never been challenged like that. I was used to being able to push myself through whatever barrier I met and persevere, but CrossFit challenged me beyond anything I had ever seen and continues to humble me daily. From that moment on, nothing amounted to the feeling of accomplishment that I received at the end of every workout. The beautiful thing about CrossFit is that it adapts with you, you can never reach the "end" of your CrossFit journey because you continually adapt and find new ways to push yourself. Whether it's your first time working out in years or you're fresh off the courts... CrossFit will challenge you and grow with you as you progress.

1 Corinthians 9:26 - 27: "Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize." There is a key part of this verse that sticks out to me: "No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave." I read this and I hear "discipline", "hard work", and "character." Here at 926, we house people who want better for themselves. People who want to celebrate and grow the gifts they have been blessed with. People who want to step up and make a bigger impact on others by what they have achieved by pushing themselves. Here at 926, we practice what we preach and we serve everyone who walks into our doors by helping them see what is attainable through hard work and discipline.
