How did you get into CrossFit?
After being a long distance runner for years, I wanted to try something new! It was pretty revolutionary to hear of a sport that is also functional fitness. Once I began attending classes regularly, I never looked back!
What motivates your passion for fitness and healthy living?
I'm in it for longevity. I want to be healthy and moving well and crossfitting even into my 80's and 90's!
What are some of the benefits you have seen from doing CrossFit?
The number on the scale always had such power over me from adolescence to adulthood. After I began to Crossfit, and started to gain muscle mass, being strong became a priority over being thin. The number on the scale became meaningless and now I feel like I have a healthy perspective on weight and body image. I am thankful to be passing this healthy perspective onto my three daughters!
Why do you coach, and what motivates you to teach?
I coach because I love to help athletes improve their fitness (conditioning and strength) and I love being their biggest cheerleader to help them reach their fitness goals!
What is your favorite food?
Thai and Mexican.
What are some things you like to do outside of CrossFit?
I love selling houses, singing, playing piano/guitar/drums, and spending quality time with my husband and three daughters.
