What year did you start CrossFitting?

2015

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I have always enjoyed fitness, working out, and being healthy overall.  I played sports growing up, but once I was out of sports, I was somewhat lost in gyms on what to do that kept me motivated and was also fun.  I did several different group fitness classes for a number of years, but found that I hit a plateau and became bored, because they didn’t vary much from class to class.  Then I began dating a CrossFit gym owner, so naturally, I just had to try it out…although it took me a few months to gather up the nerve!  But when I finally tried it, I was hooked!  I love how each work out is challenging and no two days are alike.  

Why did you become a trainer?

CrossFit has changed my life.  Being in my early 30’s, I have never felt healthier and more comfortable in my own skin.  My hope in becoming a coach, was to help empower as many people to become the best version of themselves as possible.
