Enter CrossFit! In 2011, I found my new addiction. I found who I was looking for, a stronger more confident and healthier ME! I ended up winning. I lost the weight I needed to lose, healthfully. NO fad diets. NO excuses.
This path lead me to where I am today. I LOVE coaching. I LOVE CrossFit. I LOVE bringing the two together to help people discover how AWESOME they are!
My health was rapidly declining. I found it hard to breathe, hard to move, and I was uncomfortable in every situation. It became an obsession to find myself again and to be able to look at myself in the mirror and be happy with who I saw.
My older sister joined the CrossFit movement, then our friend, and another and another. And they all couldn't stop talking about their experiences. The excitement, the challenge, the fun and the great people they were meeting.
I have a long history of sport and fitness. I was a competitive swimmer since the age of 8. Through the years I've ran track, tried my hand at rowing crew, kick-boxed, and even did a little boxing.
I started teaching swimming at the age of 14 and switched to coaching when I was 19 and I've been addicted ever since.
I have had the pleasure of teaching and coaching people from the age of 5 - 65 yrs young. There's a joy in seeing the sweat and tears come to fruition when large and small goals have been achieved.
My personal fitness journey wasn't always sunshine and roses. When I was forced out of swimming due to injury I assumed I could continue to eat as if I were still swimming 20 hours a week and in the gym for dry-land for an additional 5 hours. I ended gaining... well... A LOT of weight!
