Tell us a bit about your family:
2 older siblings (brother and sister), grew up with my mom and my brother in a small town close to cologne. Mother was working hard, so she was my role model.

Previous sports:
I started with soccer, then Basketball (every sports I knew, cause I wanted to lose weight) ended with MMA, then natural bodybuilding, then I had a competition on stage and found out that this isn’t the real thing for me and entered CrossFit to have a real competition based on facts.

First time doing CrossFit:
In my bodybuilding off-season with 105 kg bodyweight I did my first CrossFit class at Sankt Pauli Athletik (back then it was CrossFit sankt pauli) in 2016 with a lot of Wallballshots, Rowing and Deadlifts. I was completely exhausted!

Then I went back to stage and decided to stop bodybuilding and started coaching at CrossFit Sankt Pauli.

Then I did my first open – 17.1 with DB Snatches and burpee Box jump over. The head-coach said: „man your heavy but you got an impressively good engine“.
