William opened CrossFit Alexandria because he is passionate about helping others live a fulfilled life. The programs he has helped develop at CrossFit Alexandria have helped people to reach their full potential not only in fitness, but also every other area of their life.
His mission as a coach and business owner is to motivate individuals to make a life-long commitment to fitness and to work every day at bettering themselves as individuals. “The welcoming and encouraging community at CrossFit Alexandria makes us all want to be better family members, friends, bosses, employees, coaches and athletes.”
Nutrition has a profound effect on body composition, energy levels, sleep quality, mental attitude and quality of life. William’s passion for providing healthy choices to America has led him to start various business ventures in the health industry, including My Fit Food restaurants throughout Los Angeles and Phoenix.
He also consults for several leaders in the fitness industry including the #1 Fitness Podcast in the world.
Prior to delving full-time into strength, conditioning and nutrition, William practiced as a professional engineer for nearly 10 years. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from LSU and an MBA from Tulane.
In William’s “former life” as an endurance athlete and adventurer, he has run 12 marathons including New York, Chicago, Marine Corps and Pike’s Peak – deemed by many as the most difficult in the world. He has swum across the Mississippi River, run a couple of ultras, held a 1,000-day running streak and rode a bull named The Hurricane lasting 2.7 seconds.
William enjoys spending time with his wife and their two dogs, his family, friends, and church.
