- CrossFit Level I Certified, 2016
Michael grew up outside of Charlotte, NC and had a fairly active childhood. Basketball, soccer, and tennis kept him busy until he moved to Asheville for college where he discovered the twin joys of his life: hiking in North Carolina’s beautiful outdoors and Ultimate Frisbee. After moving to Carrboro in 2012 he was missing the physical outlets of the mountains when a friend suggested CrossFit. After a year long trial run at CrossFit UNC, he took the plunge and joined Local. The community support and challenging workouts told him that he had found his new base for physical activities. After two and a half years, he was finally ready to take the next step and worked hard to become a coach at Local. Michael is eager to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with everyone who walks into the gym.
