“The mind always fails first, not the body. The secret is to make your mind work for you, not against you.”- Arnold Schwarzenegger
I was never very active growing up and had trouble finding a fitness program that gave me the results to keep me interested. The excuses and reasons why I'd never be in shape kept piling up--as did the pounds! When I found CrossFit back in 2012, something in me came alive and after I (barely) made it though my first workout, I knew that I wanted more! Eight years later, I can honestly say that CrossFit has improved my strength, stamina, and life for the better. CrossFit became such a big part of my life that I knew I wanted to be a coach and have others see the fire that could be ignited within themselves. I love to see people come into the gym and accomplish things they never thought they would be able to. Inevitably, this confidence and desire to succeed carries over into multiple facets of every athlete's lives. CrossFit has helped me complete multiple mud runs, trail and road races, local competitions, and helps me be generally better at life. It also inspired me to dive really deep into nutrition and how we can use it not only to fuel our bodies in the most optimal way, but sustain our health to live our best lives.
I truly believe that CrossFit goes beyond fitness and is a way of life that can benefit everyone. I am the epitome of "if I can do it, anyone can!" As one of your coaches, I want to harness your strengths, attack your weaknesses and help you (safely) push past your comfort zone. Rock Life CrossFit--Come for the sweat, stay for the awesome community! :)
