Larry Crooks is the Co-Founder, Business Manager and Coach here at CrossFit CTOWN. He specializes in creating a community that inspires others to make a positive change in their lives. “My goal as a coach and the Business Manager is to provide you with a fun, safe, effective, and supportive environment for you to pursue and conquer your fitness goals.”
Coach Larry’s start in the CrossFit world came by way of a shoulder surgery back in 2010. “My intentions were to incorporate 3 weekly workouts into my routine and do “cardio” 2-3 days a week. I acknowledge I was a fitness idiot before I found CrossFit. The moment I suffered through my first WOD, I knew this was the right path to fitness, health, and wellness. I quickly became a 6 day a week CrossFitter and decided to get my Level 1 Certification. Needless to say, I am now 100% addicted to CrossFit and the results I derive from it and I am passionate about sharing my experience to help others.”
Coach Larry jokes that transitioning from chubby kid to competitive athlete only took him 40 years to figure out, but that he’s living proof that consistent participation in CrossFit combined with a healthy diet can positively impact the mind, body and spirit. “Fundamentally, I believe that fate puts certain opportunities in front of us, but that it is up to us to take some action or initiative to realize those opportunities.”
When Coach Larry isn’t in the box, you can find him at the end of a dog leash or two, behind the lens of a camera hoping to capture some cute dogs or inspirational athletes, or boarding a flight to his next adventure.
