Hi Kevin tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, job etc.
I was born and raised here in Missoula, my family has owned and operated the Silver Dollar Bar since 1935, I am the 4th generation to run our family business, along with my father and two brothers. I have been married for 22 years( sorry ladies) and have two daughters, ages 18 and 14. I graduated from loyola high school in 1985,
How did you first get involved in CrossFit and how long have you been CrossFitting?
I first saw a small two line ad in the newspaper and tried to call the number but never got an answer or a call back, I was at work one day talking about it and a friend said that him and some others were gonna start , their own crossfit gym ( they had been doing crossfit at the main peak) and I told them to let me know when they got it going that I would like to try it
. So in january of 2005 or 2006 I went to my first class at crossfit montana, and after alot of icy hot and advil I’m Still Doing it. ( alot slower and mostly scaled)
Now I know you and your family own and operate The Silver Dollar Bar. Can you tell us the wildest or one of the wildest things you’ve seen there?
I could tell alot of stories but the difference between a good bartender and a great bartender is that a great one knows when to keep his mouth shut
Have you ever tried to convince anyone from the bar to come CrossFit and how did that go over?
I tell anyone who will listen, but most of my friends are not willing to do it, I think that they are afraid, or they enjoy riding a treadmill for hours every day, they may like the mirrors on the wall too.

What would your nightmare workout look like?

What is your favorite place to eat in Missoula and why?I like the Dino cafe in charlie Bs bar. It’s just an easy, basic place, plus it’s inside a bar that’s not real fancy.
What is your top choice for workout music?
Well I like the heavy stuff because that’s what was played when I started, but I also like the 80s too, so I
I guess anything is better than hearing myself huff and puff
