As someone that struggled with his weight and body image in his teens, Patrick has been a fitness enthusiast for years. Patrick first joined CrossFit in 2017 since he lost the motivation to work out at a regular gym. He enjoyed the competitive environment but also the community aspect of CrossFit where he has made friends for life. CrossFit has also helped Patrick regain confidence in his body and reach his personal fitness goals. At the beginning of 2022, Patrick earned his L-1 trainer’s certificate as CrossFit became more than just a passion.
