As a kid, Mike was never someone people would call athletic; sports were not exactly his “thing.” He did do fairly well at high school wrestling (at 6’2” and weighing in at 112lbs). Being a scrawny, kid he never really spent any time or energy considering his nutrition or physical fitness. Life continued and Mike’s 20’s were gone. At 30 years old, he was larger in the middle than he liked, and very much not in shape. Then, he was diagnosed with a medical condition that causes occasional irregular heart rate. He knew that it was time to do something. He found an exciting challenge in doing Obstacle Course Racing, particularly Tough Mudders, including the 24Hour World’s Toughest Mudder. In 2013 Mike discovered CrossFit and it has changed his life. He is now fitter, stronger, and healthier than he’s ever been.
