I have always enjoyed moving and playing sports.. I played softball all through school. I was typically the girl playing football with the guys. I started Crossfit when I was 17 years old not too long after I had stopped playing softball. I decided I wanted to put on some muscle and workout like my parents do! It wasn't till I was 21-22 years old that I really got into the sport of Crossfit and began challenging myself to learn new skills and increase my lifts. Now that I am going into almost 10 years of actively cross-fitting there are so many aspects of the sport that I genuinely love. I love that everyday in the gym is different, I love that I am constantly surprised by what I can do, I love that there is always an opportunity to get 'better' at something within Crossfit. I started coaching about two years ago - it was quite a shock to a lot of people when I mentioned being interested because I have always been the quiet one who stays in the back. As I began attending regular classes and seeing the same faces it became so exciting to see others do things they thought impossible! To watch a new member lift a heavy weight, or an older member finally get the muscle up they have been working on for months, Helping others achieve new skills, strengths, and confidence is addicting and inspiring to see on a daily basis, I like to think I am the kind of coach who can make you feel like nothing is impossible when you are ready to work for it.
