We met in 2013 in Indianapolis during a March Madness basketball game (Duke vs MSU). We started dating a week later and got engaged on Christmas and married the following October 2014.


We've always been interested in outdoor activities such as boating, water skiing, wake-boarding, hiking, etc. We both grew up around lakes and our love for the water came naturally.

We're very into fitness and each competed in bodybuilding competitions in 2016 when we still lived in Indiana. We started doing Orangetheory Fitness in 2019 and have been working out at home since the gyms have been closed due to COVID-19.

We moved to North Carolina at the beginning of 2017 and recently moved from Charlotte to Tampa, Florida. We've been on quite an adventure together through moving (multiple times), health challenges, fitness competitions, business ownership, job transitions, traveling in and out of the country, etc. and want to share what we've learned so far.

We believe that you are 100% in charge of your life and that's why we are so passionate about Own Your Life. We aren't perfect and don't claim to know everything but we feel that hearing other people's stories is a powerful agent of change and inspiration to change yourself.

We're so glad you're here and that you want to learn more about owning your own life!

-Matt & Ashley Crick
