Train with Coach Orion
I am passionate about dreams and their pursuit. Whether they are athletic, professional, or personal I am constantly trying to be aware of dreams and increase their potential to become reality.
During my time at CrossFit Jääkarhu, I want to help in the continuation of forging a strong and fulfilling community by joining the coaching staff and pursuing a long term passion.
I have been coaching since 2013, and take pride in understanding movement and how movements transfer to and from one another well. I am very interested and have a continually growing understanding of how mindset can affect performance and what an optimal mindset looks like and how to harness it.
For the better part of my child and young adult life I grew up on a small farm outside a small town in central Wisconsin. My dreams and fascination with the world led me to move somewhere bigger after I graduated school, first to Santa Fe in New Mexico, and then to Austin in 2013.
While I have learned and grown a lot from traveling and experiencing the “real” world, my heart will always be in the country and my value system and the way I interact with people is a direct derivative from the way I was raised in the tight-knit community I had back home—much like the community here at Jääkarhu.
My goal is to have a program that develops people physically in the gym and personally for their day to day life.
I want to develop traits in my athletes that can help them perform in business, relationships, the wild, or any other situation they might find themselves in. I want to coach people who are looking for growth, change, and fulfillment.
Outside of the gym, I spend my time playing music, acting on occasion, reading/writing, and getting out in nature.
Ones only obligation is to find ones destiny.
