At age 45, Shane committed himself to improving his health. Over the course of 2 years, he lost 100lbs, competed in dozens of 5k and ran his first marathon. Jiu Jitsu was something that he always wanted to do and when he happened to be driving through Chatham and saw the sign for Forge, the stars aligned! Since late summer 2020, most of Shane’s free time has been spent on the mats either training or helping with kids and fitness classes. In 2021 he competed in both submission only and points tournaments as well as IBJJF in February 2022. In March 2022, Shane received his Blue Belt.
