Background
A Minnesota native, Drew grew up with a passion for all sports, having competed in almost every sport, but over time concentrated his efforts towards baseball. He was a competitive gymnast for 8 years and feels that was the best choice his parents could have made for him from an athletic background. Drew is a very ambitious and determined individual and truly believes that quitting is never an option. He played four years of varsity college baseball at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX before an injury stopped him from playing professionally after college. Since April of 2009, Drew has been an active competitor and avid participant in CrossFit Competitions. He has been CrossFitting since November 2008 and plans to continue for the rest of his life. Being a CrossFit coach means more than just coaching to him. He instills those methodologies by “Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, Performed at High-Intensities” to everyone who walks through his door and strives to see them succeed in their own ways. He is constantly driven to learn new fitness techniques and styles, as well as search for up-to-date health and wellness information that he can share with him members. Drew has also been developing a Strength and Conditioning Program based around Powerlifting, Olympic Lifting, CrossFit and overall athletic ability since November of 2010. It is utilized by many of the Mission CrossFit SA’s coaches and athletes who have goals of competing. Drew loves to coach and will teach his program to anyone who is willing to learn, wants to have a true competitive edge over their competition and has the drive to perform at their highest level possible.
