Growing up I was always active and played sports in school. I joined the local swim team when I was 8yrs old, competing all the way through college and even coaching for a couple years. Between daily practice and weekend competitions our family basically lived at the swimming pool. I enjoyed the team atmosphere while being able to still compete in individual events. After college I ran once in a while and lifted light weights in the gym a couple days a week – you know I just wanted to tone, not get too bulky. Haha
I started Crossfit shortly after watching reruns of the 2014 Crossfit Games. After seeing what those girls were capable of, I knew I wanted to feel confident and be strong like them. Looking back, I wish I would have heard about Crossfit earlier. The best feeling as a coach is seeing the huge smile on a members face when they get their first pull up, learn a new skill or PR a lift.
