This recent Boston resident is only twenty-four years old and a strong competitor, though he almost quit the sport after his first workout, Grace (30 clean and jerks for time) which he completed in 10 minutes. He said after that workout he never wanted to do CrossFit ever again. Luckily for us, Spencer gave CrossFit another shot a few weeks later and was addicted. CrossFit has now become a huge part of Spencer’s life along with working for Reebok International and training at Reebok CrossFit Medfeild. His father, Andy, watched the 2008 games and encouraged Spencer to train for the competition. Fast forward to today and Spencer’s father is his coach and training buddy.

“Having my dad there for support, and in the crowd and being my coach is what keeps me going” Spencer says. Spencer placed 13th in the 2012 CrossFit games, and we look forward to what he has in store in for the future!
