Chance has been involved with the Crossfit community after watching the 2012 Crossfit Games. He was amazed by the functionality and strength of the athletes, so he sought out his local Box and began interning for the next 2 years. He got to see that Crossfit is not just about moving weight well, but rather, like minded people seeking to push themselves and others to succeed physically and more importantly in their everyday life. He says “I would rather an individual make an effort to change the direction of their life, than try to go faster or lift heavier. That’s why a Crossfit gym is so great, because no matter the ability of the individual, everyone has the capability to work hard in their own capacity. The community of the gym is there to encourage and walk with each other through the trials of the WOD and everyday life.”
Chance comes to us from Atlanta, Ga where he was studying for his 4 year Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Prior to that he worked for his four year Exercise Science Degree in Cleveland, TN. His primary focus while in school was Chiropractic Kinesiology where he received over 300 hours of instruction on the movement patterns of the body. Originally from Tennessee, Chance is trying his hand at the Minnesota winters with his wife Brittany who originally grew up in Minnesota. Other than fitness and wellness, he loves tinkering on cars and projects around the house that involve building or creating things as well as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and spending time with his family.
Chances favorite part about coaching in the Crossfit community is seeing people make the step everyday towards their full potential while coming alongside others to help them see their own.
