CrossFit Moxie’s early days look much like those of many boxes around the world: An interested guy/gal starts throwing around barbells in the garage and invites a few friends. A few friends turn into a gang, and eventually more space is needed. A business is born.

His accomplishments in his personal fitness now mirror the success of his business.
