Cole is a native of Kansas City who has always been an active person in one way or another. He grew up playing sports and eventually found his way to CrossFit in high school and has been working out ever since. Cole enjoys the technical aspects of movements like snatches and clean and jerks, which is why his favorite part of CrossFit is Olympic lifting. In addition to Olympic lifting, he loves learning as much as he can about how the body moves and what he can do in his role as a coach to prevent injuries. This passion has grown into seeking out a career as a physical therapist. He is currently a doctor of physical therapy student at Rockhurst University and is loving it!
