MEET COACH AARON

How long ago you joined the Mako Team and why?

I joined the team at Mako a little over 2 months ago to start the Barbell Club. Having been a part of the community since the doors opened 7 years ago, I wanted to play a bigger role in the continued development of the gym's culture.

What’s your athletic background and how did you get started in CrossFit?

I grew up living and breathing soccer and hockey. After high school, I played 4 years of NCAA D1 soccer at Xavier and Wright State University. After college, I played 3 years of professional in the USL with the Cincinnati Kings.

I found CrossFit right after graduating from high school and used it as my main strength and conditioning program in my off-seasons. After ending my professional career, I started training full-time. During that time, I developed a love for the sport of weightlifting, and for the last 4 years, I have been training primarily as a weightlifter. After my first year of competing, I started to coach.

What do you like to do outside of the gym? Hobbies?

When I’m not in the gym coaching or training, I love to cook, listen to music, play the guitar, and spend time with my loved ones and friends.

What should members expect from your classes?

Anyone who works with me should expect to be challenged. I hope is that everyone leaves feeling like a stronger and more well-rounded athlete. I create an environment that supports and holds people accountable to their personal goals.

What would you say to somebody that is thinking about joining the gym? Or somebody without CrossFit experience that would like to try it out?

For anyone who is considering joining the gym, I’d tell you that it is 100% the best investment that you can ever make in yourself.

Don’t compare yourself to anyone other than yourself. It can be very intimidating the first time you walk into a gym, but just know that everyone here, including the best athletes, started in the same shoes at one point.

CrossFit and Weightlifting are both sports that anyone, at any age, and any skill level can do.
