Nate began CrossFit in the fall on 2011. He vividly remembers his first private elements class where there was a group practicing for the upcoming sectionals (the qualification BEFORE the Open was around) and immediately thought what did he get himself into? Over 9 years later, Nate is still CrossFit and enjoying the sport of fitness. Nate has competed in various local CrossFit competitions as well as a few Olympic Weightlifting meets. In 2018, Nate earned his Level 1 Certification and plans to get his Level 2 in March 2020.
Nate was born and raised in Hawaii. He grew up playing soccer and running track throughout high school. In 2008, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from UH Manoa. Outside of the gym, he is active with his hula halau and is on his way to earning the title of Kumu hula. He is grateful for the journey that CrossFit has taken him on and looks forward to sharing his experiences and knowledge with fellow teammates and athletes.
