How and when did you discover CrossFit & what concerns or problems did you have before you started?
I discovered CrossFit years ago. Both my mother Debbie and my Brother Sean have been CrossFit athletes for years, and it still remains a big part of their lives. My mother has been trying to get me to do CrossFit for years, but I was always self conscious about my weight and was uncomfortable with group classes. However, that all changed when I found this gym. Matt took me under his wing and trained me to the point of being comfortable with classes, as well as got me in shape enough to pass the NH Firefighter Candidate Physical Agility Test. I went from one CrossFit class a week to five. With going to classes and getting nutrition appointments with Royce, I felt unstoppable.
What results have you gotten so far?
When I first walked into this gym, I weighed 345 pounds. I am now at 235 pounds. I went from about 40% body fat to 19%. Not only has it significantly improved my physical health, but also my mental health. And thanks to my weight loss and increased health, I no longer have sleep apnea.
What is different about EverProven services?

What would you tell someone that is on the fence about joining EverProven?

What is one interesting fact many people don’t know about you?
I competed in a strongman competition senior year of high school. One of the events I completed was pulling a monster truck called the Vermonster.
