Mike Short

My name is Mike Short. I was born in San Diego, but I’ve lived in Tucson the majority of my life. Growing up I was always playing sports. In high school I played football, wrestled and ran track. Training for these sports is where I got my first real exposure to conditioning, powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting. That’s where my passion for training and working out began.

In college I walked on at Scottsdale Community College to play football, but I ended up fracturing two vertebrae in my neck my first year and decided to retire. After that I moved back home to go to school and joined the “globo gym” world. I spent a good amount of time doing the typical bodybuilding type workout routines.

Finally after a couple of years of this I grew tired and bored with this style of lifting. I knew very little about CrossFit at the time other than the brief conversation with my boss, who had done CrossFit before, and what I had seen on TV. Like most, I figured that I was in pretty good shape and that I’d give it a try. I mean how hard could it be really? I scheduled my intro and signed up in the fall of 2014. My first workout I was in the back corner of gym two about ready to keel over and die from burpee box jumps. I remember contemplating if this was actually something for me. A group of guys in the 7am class came and cheered me on until I finished. The combination of the community atmosphere and my own competitive fire to never finish last in a WOD again, ultimately is what kept me here.

After being a member for almost a year I decided I wanted to take the next step and be a coach. I had some experience in the past with training people and I wanted to try that out within CrossFit. I received my CrossFit Level 1 in September of 2015 and immediately joined the staff. I have loved every minute of being a coach. After coaching and CrossFitting for over a year and a half I identified that my true passion inside of CrossFit was Olympic Weightlifting. So, in May of 2016 I got my USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Certification. I have an unbelievable thirst for knowledge within the fitness world. I am always looking for any books, articles or videos that I can learn from to help me grow and develop into a better coach.

My goal in life and in CrossFit is simply to help people in any way I can. That is what drives me and brings me true happiness. I get more satisfaction out of helping a member reach new goals, regardless of how big or small, than I do accomplishing my own PR’s. The members we have here at CFT are so amazing and I’m just honored to be in a position where I can be a resource for them on their fitness journey.
