Tim was introduced to CrossFit in January of 2008 while living in San Diego, CA. When work moved him to the Washington DC area in 2009, he was advised to seek out the coaching of Maggie and Jeff Tincher. Thankfully they let him stick around and it has been a beautiful relationship ever since.

Tim's coaching experience began as an undergraduate Strength and Conditioning coach at Penn State University while also playing Rugby and earning his B.S. in Kinesiology. After 9 years in the corporate world, Tim began coaching at CF Reston in 2012. Tim’s greatest joys as a coach is in teaching others and helping individuals reach their goals. Some of his proudest coaching moments include training a 70 years young woman to get her first pull-up, conditioning a young cerebral palsy patient to walk short distances without assistance and leading CrossFit Reston athletes through the daily workout. Tim is there to help make you better.
Two of Tim’s favorite quotes from Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, are:

"We are practicing not weightlifting, but commitment. Commitment spawns success. Only by redoubling our efforts, do we best succeed.

"The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community."

Tim says "I guarantee you will have a lot of fun with the diverse group of people we have at Crossfit Reston. We look forward to seeing you at the gym!"
