I started CrossFit in 2012 when I reluctantly purchased a Groupon for “boot camp classes”. I was in graduate school, very out of shape and hoping that another Groupon (following yoga, kickboxing & globo gyms) would be the kick start that I needed to get back on track.
CrossFit has been that and more for me; it has provided me with lasting friendships, never-ending support both in & out of the gym and most importantly, the confidence to try every day to be better & stronger than the last. Since that day, I was hooked! I can honestly say that CrossFit is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
Similarly to my social work career outside of the gym, I truly love helping athletes with building confidence & reaching their own personal goals. I love the changing nature of fitness that CrossFit provides; each day is something different & more exciting than the last. No matter how proficient one may feel after years of CrossFit, there will always be another WOD that will remind you that there is always another PR (personal record) to reach for 🙂 Watching athletes learn & develop new skills to reach their full potential is what I love to do.
This sport has had such a profound and positive impact on so many people across the nation and it is my hope that I can have as great of an impact on my community at Crossfit201.
