Ray first got his feet wet in CrossFit back in 2007 when he did the “300” CrossFit workout. That was all it took, & he soon became fully immersed in the sport of CrossFit. In 2011 Ray no took the plunge & decided to make coaching his career.
He drove from Canada to the US, passed his Level 1 & started coaching the following Monday. Ray lives by what he preaches, & is constantly training his weaknesses & striving to become a well-rounded athlete & role model to those he teaches.
Don’t be intimidated or fooled by his big hairy, tattooed frame & crazy Canadian accent. Underneath the beard, you’ll find he’s rarely without a smile on his face… you will be too when you hear his endless supply of stories & jokes.
A fantastic coach & a big kid at heart Ray fits right in to the Niche coaching team.
I needed a competitive outlet after Lacrosse and I started enjoying training more than playing.
So I had a valid reason to hang out at the gym for hours on end.

I’ll go with a quote here that I think is applicable to life and fitness:
“It’s hard to follow through with a goal if it doesn’t really reflect who you are and get you where you want to be.” – Tommy Hackenbruck
