Tobi became a part-time coach at CrossFit Thin Blue Line in April 2016 and currently works at a few other CrossFit affiliates in the Hartford area. He was born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany, and moved to the US in 2001. His CrossFit journey began in early 2013, when he saw the CrossFit games on TV in his dorm room at UConn. As soon as he saw this, he found the nearest CrossFit affiliate (CrossFit 033 in Glastonbury) and joined. After being a member for about a year, a pre-existing injury forced him to the sidelines, which happened to spark the beginning of his role as a CrossFit coach. Tobi has his CrossFitLevel 1, USA-Weightlifting, as well as his CPR/AED certifications. What he enjoys most about coaching is being able to put a smile on a members face, experiencing the first steps of someone changing their life for the better as well as the pure joy that comes with learning and achieving new skills.
