CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, The Gymnastics Course Certification, CrossFit Kids Trainer, ATA Adaptive & Inclusive Trainer
I grew up on a farm being homeschooled, so hard work was a lifestyle. My brother and I are 13 months apart so we were very competitive with each other. Played HS basketball, volleyball, track and powerlifting. I studied Athletic Training and Kinesiology at KSTATE. Started CrossFit in 2011, qualified for the Granite Games as an individual and team member in 2014. Also qualified for USAW Nationals in 2014.
Identity!! I used to hold so tightly to the identities other people placed on me. Honestly it is still something I tries to affect me daily. I choose every day to see myself the way my Lord and savior Jesus Christ sees me. Not the way other people see me.
CrossFit is so amazing because no functional movement or training strategy is left out. There is always area for growth, as a coach and an athlete. I love being able to apply all the knowledge that I have learned into programming and teaching my athletes. There is so much that I have not learned that I am excited to learn and pass on as well. Being able to help people achieve their goals and be in encouraged to make new ones is so much fun!
