Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, preasses, C&J and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, pressses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits and hols. Bike, run, swim, row, etc. hard and fast. Five or six days a week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.``

Live Free Crossfit
My love of fitness started early on when at 12 years old, I got my first weight set and began a life long journey that been a source of constant evolution physically, mentally, and spiritually. This love affair led to my career in fitness when I began attending Florida International University in 2001 where I studied Exercise Physiology and played football. During this time I started my own Personal Training Company New Level Fitness and began working at the Downtown Athletic Club. I received my degree in Exercise Physiology in 2006 and gained a wealth of experience running my own business and working at a high end health club. After four years of training over 25 people a week I decided I needed more stability in order to support my wife and three children. I then became a firefighter for Miami Dade County, and during this time I also began my career as a professional mixed martial artist. I did both for 7 years before I got severly exhuasted from the constant physical and mental stress. I left both in 2013 and opened Livefree Crossfit where I can combine my passion of helping others and remain competive at the same time. I am now first a father, husband, and gym owner, who has found balance between work, training, and family.I am currently training to compete in the 2019 crossfit games as a master and are in the process of opening another gym. I am also co owner and C.E.O of Rxnutrition a individualized catering company for athletes.
