Donald got into Weightlifting through CrossFit. He said that he doubts he ever would have known Weightlifting was a sport if it hadn’t been for CrossFit.


Donald says, “I enjoy coaching for the same reason that I enjoy teaching and the general aspect of working with people. I love when the light bulb comes on for an individual and you see that “Ah-Ha” moment on their face. It is priceless and seeing a person apply new lessons and reap the benefits in their training and lives. It is def fun to watch.”
