I started wrestling before I can remember. With a dad as a high school coach until I was 11 it was just what you did. I started wieght training in 6th grade and have continued to do so ever since. In 2011 I graduated from the University of North Carolina with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science, in 2015 I started Aletheia Training, and accomplished my Crossfit Level 1 course in July of 2018. Aside from wrestling and cross training, I have ran two half marathons and one full marathon.
When not at the gym you can find me working as a residential realtor around Kansas City. I enjoy spending as much time in the outdoors as I can and traveling anywhere my budget and calendar will allow for. Guilty pleasure... lets leave it at fried foods and sweets, because I'm proud to be a Belieber.
Tim has been doing CrossFit for three years and just recently completed the Level 1 Coaches Training course. After years of distance running, swimming, and assorted other physical endeavors, Tim came to Brookside CrossFit mostly to support his wife, Mimi—and in doing so, found a cure for a persistent, severe lower back problem. He's been hooked ever since! When he isn’t coaching, Tim is at BSCF working out. Tim has three adult kids, two of whom are married, and most of whom have worked out with him at BSCF over the last three years. Tim loves seeing people experience transformation by making the decision to regularly show up, share themselves, and take risks.
