Started CrossFit- February 2012
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer since June 2012
I have been around the weight room since high school, from garages to Globo-gyms. I have been teaching group fitness for 9 years. I was a personal trainer from 2007-2012. I was introduced to CrossFit, like many, through the games. I just dabbled with it for about a month, and then I “drank the kool-aid” with the OG’s!
From helping athletes accomplish things they did not think possible, to seeing the look on someone's face when they hit a PR on a lift or get their first handstand or kipping pull up. I have had a front row seat as a group of athletes came together to form a CrossFit community that continues to grow. The support and encouragement CrossFit athletes give to each other and to the community as a whole is something special and unique. These are just some of the rewards I receive from my involvement with CrossFit. And these are the things which give me a greater sense of accomplishment, than anything I have ever experienced in the fitness industry.
