Here is a message from Coach Tim:
"Hey Crossfit Milpitas! My name’s Tim, and I’m a Bay Area native. I recently moved from Santa Barbara back to the Bay Area after graduating from UCSB. I have been lifting weights since 2010, and I’ve been involved in bodybuilding, powerlifting, and weightlifting. I initially trained as a powerlifter, but I switched to weightlifting after seeing people smaller than me snatch my max deadlift.
While at UCSB, I competed as a weightlifting athlete for the school's team. I also helped coach my fellow teammates, and I received my USA Weightlifting Coaching certification at the end of 2014.
Weightlifting isn’t just my passion. It’s so integral to my life that I couldn’t imagine a world without weightlifting. If anyone ever wants to chat up some snatch and clean and jerk, I’m definitely all ears. My love for weightlifting might make me sounds like I'm a crazy person, but trust me, I'm not (at least I hope I'm not). Weightlifting has just helped me in so many ways I could never imagine. If in 2010 you told me that I would one day compete in and coach weightlifting, I would have said you were the crazy person. Anyway, weightlifting is awesome.
I am excited to be a part of the Crossfit Milpitas community! :)
I'm also on Instagram and Youtube. My username for both services is DoesTimEvenLift.
Fun fact: I majored in computer science and minored in history at UCSB.
