Devin is a 6 time regional competitor, full time athlete and owner of CrossFit Transcend. Growing up as a martial arts student, Devin received his 2nd degree black belt by the age of 12. It was clear that competition and physical performance would be a huge passion for him. After he tried various arts such as jui-jitsu, muy thai, tae kwon do, boxing and plenty others, he found CrossFit. Ever since that day over 7 years ago Devin has done nothing but learn the science and the workings of the physical body with extra focus on nutrition to better himself and others around him. Now, Devin is a full time athlete and owner of CrossFit Transcend, he has lived and been coached by the best in the world including first CrossFit Games Champion James Fitzgerald and Max El-Hag of Training Think Tank. He travels frequently to learn and to train among the best.
Devin was a student at many formal colleges including John Jay and Stony Brook University, with majors ranging from biochemistry, psychology and English. After attempting to use what he learned in the real world he was amazed how little he had been taught, since then he had abandoned the norm route of education and learned on his own. Eventually Devin learned first-hand among the brightest minds in the fitness world including James FitzGerald, John Berardi, Robb Wolf, Lorean Cordain, Dr. Barry Sears, Gray Cook, Tim Ferris and Greg Glassman. Devin continues to increase his knowledge of health and fitness and share it here on his blog.
