Brian was always active in his youth. In the summers he life-guarded and taught swimming and diving lessons. In high school he was a year round athlete, competing in Cross Country, Diving, and Track and Field. He continued competitive diving in college on 1 meter and 3 meter springboard.
During college, Brian developed some severe health issues that put him close to kidney failure. For two years he was on a serious regimen of steroids and chemo drugs which caused extreme weight gain, a myriad of other unpleasant side effects, and no positive improvement in his condition. Fatigued, sick, and out of shape, Brian finally had enough, quit the medicine, and turned to diet and exercise for results.
In 2012, Brian discovered the Paleo diet and soon after Crossfit thanks to his wife purchasing him an on-ramp membership for Christmas. Through this new lifestyle he was able to regain control of his health and wellness. He immediately fell in love with the accepting, encouraging, and competitive team atmosphere.
