After retiring from soccer in 2011 due to prolonged injury, Collins maintained his passion for fitness by coaching sports and conditioning kids and teens, while doing body weight workouts and boot camps to keep himself fit. Frustrated that these workouts still weren’t pushing him to be his best, in 2016 Collins decided to give CrossFit a try. It was a perfect fit because two of his highest values are closely integrated into each class: community, and goal achievement. “Where else can you be part of great community of likeminded people, and pursue your goals with intensity, with achievable successes paving the way?” Collins loves healthy competition and he enjoys lifting others up and helping them to see what is possible with a little hard work. He is happily married with two very cool kids.
