What is your most memorable moment?

My first year at the CanWest Games. It came down to the final event. If I won the event, I finish first. If I don’t win the final event I get 2nd or 3rd. It all came down to that one moment. It was a incredible feeling.

Advice to new people?

Don’t get frustrated, trust the process. You can achieve your goals if you put in the work.

What do you like most about our products?

I train 1-2 hours a day. Lot of barbell and rig work. My hands take a beating. I can’t afford to have rips on my hands. I love how WODCare Hand Salve keeps my calluses under control and keeps my hands from ripping.
