What year did you start CrossFitting?

2012

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I have been athletic my whole life and heavily involved with competitive team sports throughout high school and then college. After I graduated, I really missed the team atmosphere and HATED ‘going to the gym’. I moved to a different city and was looking for something new to do in order to meet fun people, (and I guess get back into shape) and my brother recommended CrossFit. I tried it once and was hooked! I loved the community aspect and it satisfied my cravings of a ‘team-like-sport’, but with the option of being competitive. I’ve never looked back!

Why did you become a trainer?

Being a Physical Therapist by day, I truly have a passion for helping people overcome obstacles, whether it be an injury or getting that first-ever strict pull-up. There is nothing better than seeing people reach their personal goals, and being able to be part of that is an honor!

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

Well, I was going to say Wall Balls and Burpees, but I guess that makes me slightly insane. So I’ll go with Box jumps and Overhead Squats đŸ™‚

What is your favorite cheat food?

I can only choose one?! Then I’ll have to say Salt and Vinegar Kettle Cooked Chips.

Who’s your favorite Superhero and why?

Superman. Being able to fly would be AMAZING!
