In 2009 Kyle Joined the Marine Corps, he did a tour to Afghanistan in 2010 and a tour through numerous Middle Eastern countries in 2012. He found Crossfit in Afghanistan when he saw some British Marines doing “FRAN” at their camp. Kyle instantly fell in love with it and never looked back. He started introducing it to everyone in his unit and they found it an excellent way to stay in combat shape. Kyle separated from the Marine Corps in 2013 after 4 years of honorable service and began coaching at OCCF. His biggest inspiration is his Wife, Ashley.
