WE ALL START SOMEWHERE… For me, my commitment to a healthier lifestyle began after I started a family. By the time my twins were 2 years old, I realized years had gone by and I had little to no fitness routine. I was out of shape, sleep deprived, and my body ached all of the time. Going to the gym felt monotonous, and left me feeling unmotivated and uninspired. I was also battling a blood sugar disorder and knew something had to change for my long term health.
Soon after starting CrossFit, I noticed I was more mentally alert, less stressed at work, and experienced rapid strength-gains, along with noticeable body composition changes. CrossFit not only improved the way I viewed my body, but ignited a personal desire to push myself harder, and empowered me to do things I never considered a possibility.
Growing up in small towns across Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas, I had opportunities to be involved in a wide variety of sports and activities including gymnastics, track and field, volleyball, basketball, and cheerleading. In high school I made the NCA All-American Cheerleading team and went on to cheer for the Arkansas State University co-ed partner squad in college.
Although I come from an athletic background, I do not believe you have to be an athlete to be a CrossFitter. All of the workouts are scaled and modified to adjust to whichever point you are at, in your lifespan and fitness journey. As a CrossFit trainer, I aspire to push and encourage others to be the best they can be. It’s about your journey, your needs, and your goals. I am passionate about CrossFit and enthusiastic; I believe my instruction will help you learn and grow. I strive to meet you at your level and push you towards your goals.
