CROSSFIT ISO: THE PURSUIT OF A WELL BALANCED LIFESTYLE THROUGH PHYSICAL, MENTAL, SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL TRAINING. FINDING BALANCE IN AN UNBALANCED WORLD
The History behind Isorropia
I’ve had a passion for playing sports my entire life. Growing up I focused on competitive soccer, football and track. I received a scholarship for Football at Ouachita Baptist University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. In 2007 I moved to TX to become a Sports Performance Coach. I have worked with all levels of athletes focusing on strength and speed training. I began CrossFit Training in 2007 & was immediately hooked! I found my new sport! I finally discovered an avenue of training that incorporates a team environment, pushed my body to new limits and fed my hunger for competition again. I began incorporating CrossFit methods to help “regular” men and women lose weight and construct lean bodies as a personal trainer. With only a hand full of clients (which I am honored to say are still my faithful clients to this day) I started CrossFit Isorropia and officially affiliated with CrossFit becoming the 1st CrossFit in Carrollton, TX. With humble beginnings our first “box” was literally built out of our garage. We are now in a 15,000 sq feet facility and loving every minute of this exciting journey that The Lord has placed before us. CrossFit has changed the face of fitness and with good reason, It works! This is my passion and I don’t ever see myself doing anything else.

Fitness in 100 Words:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per 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.
Spiritual Fitness in 100 Words:
Start with grace. Train to be more like Jesus. Pray and truly listen. Serve, encourage and live in community. Love others with your words AND your actions. Break bread with people who aren’t like you. Move toward your fears. Be quick to forgive the faults you see in others. Pray for others more than you pray for yourself. Use your talents to honor Him, but recognize pride and be humble. Seek contentment. Choose Joy. Give with a generous heart. Be thankful for His blessings and learn to appreciate challenges. Seek to know God deeper. Study His word. End with grace.
