WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE CROSSFIT?
I have enjoyed a lot of different fitness activities over the years: step aerobics, running, swimming, biking, yoga, and walking/hiking.
WHEN & HOW WERE YOU INTRODUCED TO CROSSFIT?
My husband Greg started doing CrossFit around 9 years ago and I would attend with him for special events (Thanksgiving/Memorial Day workouts). My oldest daughter Sydney was also a member of BFIT when she swam for Central High School.
WHY DID YOU STICK WITH CROSSFIT?
CrossFit is an absolutely amazing form of functional fitness. In the past several months, my VO2 max has improved, my chronic lower back pain is GONE, I have shaved off a few inches off my hips and waist, am able to move/lift more weight, improve my flexibility and agility. The community is very warm, welcoming, and encouraging as well. The competitive aspect also appeals to me as I constantly race myself to improve reps and times.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A COACH?
I have always been zealous about fitness and nutrition. I am motivated to share my knowledge and passion for healthy eating and movement. I want to empower members to take responsibility and have the tools needed to live their healthiest and happiest life. I look forward to working with this incredible community.
FAVORITE CROSSFIT MOVEMENT?
My favorite CrossFit movement has got to be wall balls! Ironically, it is also my least favorite…. this maneuver has probably challenged me more physically and mentally than any other movement I have learned at BFit. I love it/hate it because my heart rate skyrockets and I experience exhaustion of both my lower and upper body simultaneously. However, knowing all the while I am training my body to be more explosive and improving my cardiorespiratory fitness!
