Luke has been the owner of Steel Monkey CrossFit for over 6 years and has over 12 years of experience in the industry. Luke has seen the incredible things CrossFit can do in people’s lives, but it has also deeply impacted him personally. The methodology and the business opportunity of CrossFit have given him answers that he had been seeking for many years. Namely, it allowed him to discover what the real/actual way to train the body is and to identify his purpose.
When asked what he loves about CrossFit, he stated “CrossFit is unique in that it takes on the form of the beholder. If you are negative about yourself or your situation, it will be a discouraging journey and you won’t last. But if you can find the joy in it and count your blessings, there is nothing more rewarding. This process will (only by choice) force you to be honest with yourself and fight your demons. CrossFit, if done correctly, is a non-religious cornerstone of human development.”
As the owner, Luke still makes it a priority to be out on the floor coaching numerous times per week. He believes coaching is a way for him to carry out his God-given identity and purpose – to improve upon himself and elevate others, using his identity of Love, Ambition, and Respect to lead the way.
