What year did you start CrossFitting?


Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I originally joined CrossFit Fairbanks to gain strength to complete a Tough Mudder. I was completely hooked after my first on ramp class. Through CrossFit, I have gained confidence to complete physical tasks that I never imagined I could do, much less, do well.

Why did you become a trainer?

Simply put, my love for the sport. Sharing it with people, watching them accomplish things they never imagined. I know, CrossFit will help them become the best versions of themselves. Being a part of that journey is an incredible privilege.

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?


What is your favorite cheat food?

Brownies and pizza, in that order

Who’s your favorite Superhero and why?

“Superman-He is compassionate and always strives to do the right thing. He represents us humans at our best.”
