How did you get into Crossfit?
I got into Crossfit through watching it on ESPN. There were people who were super jacked, super strong and could run - that is impressive. Then I saw some woman on my Facebook doing it. I thought to myself, “Well if she can do it, anyone could do it.” I was sold; I joined a gym.
From where does your passion for fitness and healthy living stem?
My passion for fitness comes from a love of food and fear of being fat.
What are some of the benefits you have seen from doing CrossFit?
I have become fitter and made some good friends during my time doing Crossfit.
Why do you coach, what motivates you to teach?
I coach because I want to help make the gym better and I want to help everyone at CFDA do the best they can. In addition, it gives me an excuse to be at the gym more with an actual purpose.
What is your favorite food?
Pizza. Let’s go get pizza!
What are some things you like to do outside of CrossFit?
I am really into football - NFL, NCAA, flag, touch, fantasy - it doesn’t matter. During the season, my weekends are filled with football-related activities.
