I am the co-owner of CFV Colorado. I entered the fitness world about 7 years ago. When we moved here in 2011 with the intentions of opening our own gym, my main focus (knowing that Sam would take care of the quality and safety of training) was to build an incredible community. CFV is my family's home-away-from-home. We have essentially raised our two boys in this gym and it is so important to me to keep them surrounded by positive, good, strong people. That is exactly what we have!
Patrick came to the Vail Valley in November 2013 from Palmyra, NY. He first discovered CrossFit in July 2012 as he was in search of new training for his senior season of college soccer at SUNY Oswego. At the conclusion of Patrick’s soccer career he continued to make CrossFit part of his daily life and it didn’t take long for him to develop a passion for the sport. He began shadowing at a small box in Fairport, NY (CrossFit Gordon) after his college graduation earned his CrossFit Level 1 in August. Eventually Patrick accepted a job as a ski instructor at Vail which further inspired his love of coaching. In April 2014 he, left the valley for the summer and traveled to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. On the Vineyard Patrick coached at CrossFit Martha’s Vineyard for the entire summer where he learned from four-time Northeast Regional Games athlete Sara Hill Mass. Patrick returned to Vail in November 2014 where he spends his days CrossFitting, skiing, hiking, and loving life.
