Biography

Garrison was a competitive athlete for 12 years, competing in football, swimming, soccer, and track. His swim coach introduced Garrison to CrossFit in 2012 and the competitiveness and community had him hooked ever since.

When Garrison realized that spending hours at the gym, in the pool, and consuming whatever food was in site wasn’t enough, he constantly found himself frustrated with training. This led to him trying out several “cookie cutter” meal plans and training programs. It wasn’t until one of his younger siblings was deemed pre-diabetic that he really took interest in nutrition. As his sibling’s lifestyle was dependent upon nutrition and being the naturally curious “science guy”, he deep dove into understanding nutrition to the best of his ability.

With degrees in Biology & Chemistry and pursuing his Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification, Garrison began completely overhauling his and his siblings relationships with food and themselves. This transition led to the training and lifestyle improvement that he had been looking for and the comfort of knowing that everything was being done to help keep his sibling as healthy as possible.

Garrison is a gym manager and full time CrossFit coach. His relatable personality, ability to listen, and to provide beneficial feedback provide for a well-rounded coaching experience.

In his free time, Garrison enjoys spending time with his two pugs in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains.
