Allie Jennings


I’m a 25 year old chemist. I just recently got engaged to an awesome man, John, and his little boy, Christian. Together, the two of them complete me fully. Outside of Crossfit I enjoy learning about God, watching football (Go Panthers! Geaux Tigers!) photography and spending time with my family.

Who or what made you join CrossFit?
