I remember my passion for fitness starting as young as 14 years old; when I walked into a Gold’s Gym for the first time. Most of my adult fitness life was spent in traditional style gyms, where I would workout anywhere from 45mins to 3 hours, 4-6 days a week. During this time, I only made a few gym friends, spent most of my time with my headphones on; isolated and quite frankly bored. I had my routine, my schedule, and my independent workouts. Not only was I bored, I wasn’t seeing great results.
Then in August 2012, it happened, a break from the cycle. Once I found Crossfit, I knew I had found not only my passion but my fitness home and a second family. Every WOD leaves me wanting more, knowing I can do more and having a community standing behind me the whole way. CrossFit is more than just a gym. It only took me ONE year of attending classes to realize I wanted to make CrossFit a bigger part of my life. In August 2013, I quit my job and took my love for Crossfit to the next level by becoming a Level 1 Coach. In addition to coaching, I have helped open a brand-new box, managed a box for 4 years, remodel and expanded a box, have organized as well as participated in several Paleo and fitness Challenges, performed in the Crosfit Games’ Opens, completed 3 half-marathons, competed in a tough mudder, all while training under some of the best Crossfit Coaches. I believe fitness should be a well-rounded sport and as long as you are moving I’m happy!
I have the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate, CrossFit Kid Certificate, CrossFit Gymnastic Certificate, USA WeightLifting Certificate and will be completing my CrossFit Level 2 Certificate in the Fall of 2018.
Fitness is my passion, Crossfit is my lifestyle.
