Community & Coaching

 

What was your 1st CrossFit workout?
400 x 500-4rds 400m Run + 500m Row

 

In what ways has CrossFit changed your life?
Made me realize, you can be fit at any age. I went from trying to be “better”to trying to stay fit for life.

 

Favorite Workout?
EMOM weights

Front Squats & Toes to bar

 

Any advice you would give to newbies?
Don’t be afraid (or ashamed) to scale at any time, scaling to maintain intensity is something I always try to remember. Intensity does not meanfeeling like you want to die after every workout. It means pushing yourself past your discomfort.

 

Fill in the Blank

 

I like…to cook!

 

Favorite cheat meal is…I don’t cheat…I try to eat in moderation without restriction.

 

I want…to be strong, healthy & happy wherever I am.

 

I am… humbled to have found a community of great people who ground me. This is the first place I’ve lived outside my home town. This community welcomed me and keeps me sane.
