CrossFit Level 1 Coach.
Hello! My name is Oscar.
I started CrossFit in 2015 out of necessity.
I had turned 50, and I was fat and out of shape. My diet was awful. I went to the doctor and had high cholesterol and blood pressure. I knew I needed something to kick my butt and extend my life so I could spend more time with my daughter, Alexia.
What seemed to be an uncomfortable and intimidating experience at first has turned into a daily passion. It was hard to get motivated to go workout at originally, but now it is routine and I do not need motivation to get to the gym. I just go. It doesn’t matter what the workout is, I want to be there. Although gasping for air never stops being a problem, I am pushing harder and getting better than I used to be!
I enter every competition I can. I once even ended up doing a competition I went to watch as a spectator because a competitor was injured and his partner needed a partner to continue on! I just like doing CrossFit!!!
During Covid I decided to get my Level 1 through the online course. Casie and Shannon asked if I wanted to coach. Initially I said no…but then I said, “What the hell, I am in.” I love CrossFit SPT and I love CrossFit!
So here I am now, living a much healthier lifestyle and in great shape. I love teaching members to do better and encouraging them to get better. I love CrossFit, I love CrossFit SPT, and I love all of our members, who I count as my friends.
