Shane was born and raised in Troy, IL and graduated from Triad High School. At Triad, he was involved in various athlete programs. From football to basketball to baseball, he was consistently busy and always looking forward to the next season. Amongst them all, his true success was in being a running back and kicker for the Triad Knights Football Program. After high school, he went to Missouri Southern State University where he played as their starting kicker and received 2nd Team All Conference. After one season, he transferred to McKendree University where he played running back for their football team and outfield for their baseball team. 

In May 2010, Shane graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and Health & Wellness Promotion. He began his career as a personal trainer at DFM, and now, he has established over 14 years of personal training experience.

After college, Shane was looking for something to have as a competitive outlet. His good friend (and current CrossFit 557 coach) Alan introduced him to CrossFit in the summer of 2010. Shane was immediately hooked. From the beginning of it all, it was a challenge for him. He lacked skill, technique, and form yet wanted to do everything he could to better himself to be the best athlete he could be. Countless hours, brutal workouts, and numerous YouTube videos kept him interested and informed. Shane wanted to learn and experience as much as possible to help get him to the next level. 

Since January 2011, Shane has had the honor to train other people in CrossFit. In January 2014, his dream of one day owning his own CrossFit box finally came true. CrossFit 557 has helped him become a better coach, athlete, and overall person. Shane is truly blessed and honored to be a part of this amazing community.
