Growing up I was always playing sports, but in high school I focused on swimming, soccer, and competitive cheerleading (you can decide whether or not it’s a sport). In college I decided to put sports/fitness on the back burner, and joined a sorority… which was awesome. After college I decided to “get in shape”, so I started running. It was terrible, and boring. My chicken legs and bad knees didn’t do too well, and it took too long. I also went through the elliptical phase for a hot minute. I got a lot of reading done, but that’s about it.
The first time I tried CrossFit, I wanted to die, but I was also obsessed. I couldn’t believe that a workout kicked my ass in such a short amount of time. I was quickly drawn to the competitive atmosphere, as I am extremely competitive, and it made working out seem more like a sport than I got my level one certification in 2012. At the time I was working out in a garage, and the cert was primarily for my benefit, but I knew I wanted to coach once I got better myself. I hope to help athletes reach their goals, overcome barriers, and love CrossFit as much as I do.
