Forrest gets to sit down and talk to his dad, Coach Mike, husband, father of four kids, and owner of CrossFit Optimistic. Coach Mike takes us back to the ‘80s when he realized his life was going nowhere in El Paso.
Needing a drastic change he enlisted in the Army. Reflecting on parenthood, his military career, and his calling in CrossFit, Coach Mike shows that growth and learning is a lifelong pursuit.
After retiring from the military after 24 years and being in the CrossFit business for 10 years and counting, he is still looking for the next adventure. No matter where life takes him next, his priority still remains being a father and continuing to build the Optimistic community.
