Bien has always been an athletic and active individual. In high school, he played football and participated in track and field. In college, he ran recreationally and took nutrition and strength training courses. Since graduating college, he’s tackled 4 half marathons and 1 ten-mile race. He started at CrossFit Nittany in July 2011 and remembers that first workout as challenging, but personally rewarding. Some of Bien’s favorite CrossFit workouts include tire flips, deadlifts, and pull-ups.
Something most people don’t know about Bien? He makes a mean grilled cheese…probably the best in town #likereallygood #notpaleo
