Frisk Sponsors Derick at the 2016 Games West CrossFit Northwest Regionals
Personally, Derick has achieved more than he expected from CrossFit. From 2014 to 2016, he increased his workouts from one 60-minute workout a day to training up to 4 hours a day. A schedule he had to arrange around his full time coaching position at Areté CrossFit. After just two years, Derick qualified to compete in the Games West CrossFit Northwest Regionals at the Moda Center in Portland in May 2016, representing one of the top 20 competitors in the Northwest. A feat that typically takes an athlete three to five years of preparation.
