CrossFit Coach / Personal Trainer
Grant became involved in sports and fitness growing up in Michigan, playing baseball and basketball in high school and a variety of intramural sports in college. He started doing functional fitness on his own while working in Indiana, and joined a CrossFit gym in Guam in 2014 and became competing in endurance sports including open water swimming, trail runs and triathlons.
He completed his CrossFit Level 1 course in Singapore in 2016 and began coaching in Kentucky later that year. He has additional certifications in Aerobic Capacity, Running and Strongman, hoping to inspire athletes to use their improved fitness in everyday life outside the gym.
Growing up I had a gym in my basement. This is where it all started for me. I was 6 or 7 and wanted to be like my older brother. So I would follow him down the stairs into the basement and make him give me exercises to do. I didn’t know what I was doing but I felt a part of. This rolled over into sports.
Growing up I was a 3 sport athlete playing baseball, basketball, and football. I never wanted to leave the field, court, or weight room. It’s where I lived. I continued sports at the Collegiate level, playing football for Temple University. Leaving sports in my 20’s my drive for the gym took over.
I lifted in a regular gym setting for decades both during my sports career and after. It wasn’t until I found Crossfit that I gained the comradery and fun competition I was searching for.
Functional fitness has changed my life in multiple ways. Not only has it improved my health in the physical sense. It has altered my perception and helped me in a far greater area, my mental health. This was growth in an area I didn’t see coming. It opened my eyes to an area of well being I didn’t know fitness could reach. This was something I knew I had to share and help others find.
