Who Am I?

Rand was a three-sport athlete as a kid, participating in intramural baseball, soccer, and basketball leagues. He was a varsity athlete in high school on both the soccer and tennis squads. In college, he walked onto the crew team and participated in intramural sports leagues — flag football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, and softball. He has trained with Swiss rugby club RC Nyon, briefly played in Shanghai’s International Football League, and is aiming to compete in the Ironman 70.3 in the future. After helping to open Shanghai’s first Crossfit gym, Iron Dragon, in 2013, he moved to Hong Kong to study the yogic arts, where he also assisted with the opening of Ursus Fitness. He moonlights as a yoga instructor and Crossfit coach, while working at a local high school as a teacher and sports coach.

 I can travel almost anywhere worldwide and find a Crossfit community that will welcome me for a workout. So rad.

I believe it’s important for me to give back to my community and to pass on knowledge that I’ve accumulated.
