    What a guy. A stud of an athlete and just a genuinely nice person. Possibly has the most energy in the entire gym, whether he’s crushin a wod or cheering you on you know when this guys around. He’s made some massive gains in the last year that I’ve known him, keep it up dude!

    Christian is without a doubt one of a kind. He’s been friendly, personable and full of life since day one. But the more you get to know him, the more you can’t help but love him. He’s a genuine, down to earth, shoot you straight kind of guy. He’s full of energy, always smiling, and exudes positivity. Christian is a great CrossFitter who is well rounded and hard working, too. And he’s a defy-the-odds kind of athlete who basically achieves anything he sets his mind too. Never surprised but always impressed with this dude. Nothing but love for you, Christian. 😄

    Christian is one of a kind and he wears it all on his sleeves. Christian might enjoy himself in the gym more than anyone I’ve ever met while CrossFitting. He’s always got a smile and a word, or two, for everyone. I don’t think he’s got a mean bone in his body. Christian is an awesome athlete that isn’t afraid to chase his own goals. He wanted a 300lb clean so he ate as much as he could for a year until he was heavy enough to clean 300lb. Then he stopped eating so he could do unbroken ring muscle ups all day..he did that too. He has fun, he enjoys the company of others, he’s honest, he’s funny, he asked his wife to marry him on the gym floor. Christian is an animal that can’t be tamed. Like a wild animal, you just enjoy him when you see him. Don’t you change Christian!

    There are countless reasons why this dude is a clear favorite of many in our community. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Christian over the past few years as he has worked to make his various goals a reality, and have been inspired by his successes all the way. There isn’t anything this guy can’t do and you better believe he’s going to do it with a smile. I’ve never had someone make me laugh as hard a Christian can seem to do on a daily basis and it’s a treat every time I walk in to see him waiting with a joke. Keep spreading that energy, Christian!

    Look at the OH mobility! Christian keeps on crushing his weaknesses. A couple years back and I know this had to be something he would dread. Now if only that could make more putts fall….Great job my dude!

    Christian! Great shot of a great guy! He’s one of the only athletes I know that can walk in the side gym and have 185 on the bar for a snatch within 5 minutes. When he has a number in mind, he’s going to hit it whether it’s a 5 or 25 pound PR. He’s always kind and always has a nice word for everyone within ear shot of him. He’s definitely one of a kind and brings a spark to the gym whenever he walks through the door! Christian, don’t change a thing and keep setting those goals high!
