Quote:
“I have always loved being in gym environments but when I graduated from college, my eyes were opened to how quickly your health can deteriorate if you don’t pay attention to it. To prevent this from happening, I began playing Ultimate Frisbee and taking Fitness classes at a martial arts studio in the area because they gave me the opportunity to stay in shape and meet like-minded people. Five years ago I was asked to join the staff of the martial arts studio I was training at as a Fitness Coach and have been training others there, part-time, ever since. In 2012 I was exposed to CrossFit and found a lot of similarities in how their workouts were written to how I run my classes. I really liked both the intensity aspect of the program and the incorporation of Olympic Lifting into each workout. In 2013 I received my CrossFit Level 1 Certification and have been coaching CrossFit, part time as well, ever since. l could not have accomplished as much as I have without healthy eating habits. I love sharing my passion for fitness and healthy living with others and am trying to reach as many people as I possibly can!!”
