About Coach

Michigan born and raised. Attended Chelsea High School and participated avidly in Football, Wrestling, Track, Lacrosse, and Orchestra. U of M Grad, husband to Amber Bauer, father to our dogs Buddy, Bailey, and oh yeah, our newly added daughter Blakely Bauer!

Turning Point

After graduating from U of M, I moved to Boston, Massachusetts to begin a career as a Surgical Neurophysiologist. Moving to a new place without a community, I felt alone and still had the athletic drive that I had as a former athlete. After a chance meeting with a Reebok photographer, I went to Reebok headquarters for 16.1 and was hooked. After that, I began attending CrossFit ONE Nation in Needham, MA, and saw firsthand the good a community centered on health & wellness could do for people. I found that the positive impact I could provide revolved around helping people become better versions of themselves - from the inside out. After moving to Charleston, South Carolina (so that Amber could become a Physical Therapist, check out Rebuilt Movement & Rehab!) I managed Pale Horse CrossFit from 2017-2020, before deciding to move back home with the dream of opening a gym to help awesome people reach their full potential!

Motivation & Passion

I've been in the gym with my family for as long as I can remember. I know how much it has shaped me to be who I am and what a healthy lifestyle can do for others. My motivation is to create as much positive change in the world as I possibly can; and this is the best way that I know, to do just that!
