My name is Gary O’Brien and I am a 50-year old land development consultant who doubles in the evenings as a CrossFit Level 1 Instructor at CrossFit Hendersonville in Hendersonville, Tennessee. In addition to CrossFit, I love to backpack, play basketball and most any other sporting endeavor. I am also planning my first sprint Triathlon for later this year!
I am 5’-10.5” tall and weigh around 170 lbs and I work out or coach about 6 days a week. I love teaching, coaching and mentoring the younger athletes in the box and I get a great sense of satisfaction in watching as one of my students set a new PR or finally “gets it” and understands a new highly technical movement or lift.
As a professional engineer and consultant, I have very strong communication skills and am very experienced in presenting ideas (in word and in speech), selling myself and speaking before large groups. I am also very personable on an individual level and have no trouble carrying a one-on-one conversation. I love people and love to help people!
I consider myself to be fashion-conscious and have for a couple of years now been a big fan of the Fitmark brand and your bags. I like to look good, whether I am sitting in a meeting at the office or leading a killer “WOD” at the box!
