My first CrossFit class was in October of 2012.  It’s hard to remember what my first WOD was but I thought to myself this shouldn’t be that hard, oh how wrong I was. I remember I was the last one to finish the workout and was shockedFoto Papalote-8478 copy at how challenging these seemingly simple movements were. Strangely I couldn’t stop thinking about that workout! So, needless to say it only took a couple weeks and I was hooked. CrossFit changed my fitness goals from a vanity focus to becoming a balanced and athletic human. My favorite aspects of CrossFit is the diversity in skills and movements
especially olympic weightlifting. I love the community and camaraderie that comes with being a part of a CrossFit Box. 
I started coaching classes after a couple of years of starting CrossFit and realized I love teaching people how to move their bodies well for lifelong health. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge to help people achieve their fitness goals and accomplish things they may have thought was not possible.

I’ve had a complicated history with working out. I grew up a competitive swimmer but never found much joy in the sport. I have always had a desire to be fit but struggled to find something that kept my interest for very long. When I found CrossFit in October of 2013 that all changed. I loved and still love the wide range of skills that CrossFit provides, Olympic lifting and the gymnastics movements being some of my favorites. There are always areas to improve, always another pinnacle to reach. CrossFit’s broad range of modalities makes learning things outside of the gym easier to catch on to.

As a coach, I thrive on seeing our athletes achieve things they didn’t believe possible. There is such joy in coaching people through their personal challenges and sharing in their victories. I love the endless ways movements can be adjusted for skill level for continued and progressive gains. Everyone comes with different goals and driving motivations, and I enjoy getting to know each member personally. My hope is that we create an environment where people can flourish physically and emotionally.

Numbers have always been my thing…from arithmetic to algebra, I love math.  Unfortunately for most of my young adult life, I focused on the wrong number: the scale.  My workouts were typically mono-structural and involved long monotonous jogging/ellipitcal/etc.  I could keep my weight in a steady range, but no matter how far I ran, my fitness stayed in the same place.

I met Crossfit after having a baby and needed something to get my ‘number’ back in the right range.  Somewhere along the way, and several months into my journey, my focus changed.  I no longer cared about the number on the scale… I was watching my strength numbers increase, I was moving faster in workouts, and for the first time in my life… could do a pull-up!  
Five years later and after many more ‘firsts’ I decided to become a coach.  The coaching dream started as a goal to improve my own Crossfit knowledge (selfish I know)… Little did I know that coaching would bring more personal satisfaction than any other job I’ve had.  I get to lead, encourage and inspire our community to conquer their goals each day.  And most importantly get to share some of the many ‘firsts’ within our community.
