My whole life has been spent as a competitive athlete (Softball, Basketball, Swimming, Triathlon) but also as a self-proclaimed nerd.
So, when I was introduced to CrossFit in 2008, the definition “constantly varied, multifunctional fitness done at high intensity over broad time and modal domains” appealed to both personas. I had just had major knee surgery so the first year of CrossFit was very basic but I loved studying everything about it; so much so, I completed the CrossFit Level 1 certification in December 2009.
I can truly say that I have had the time of my life instructing clients over the past few years. Coaching is in my blood and outside of CrossFit have had experience coaching two 16U girls fast pitch softball teams. In addition to class instruction, over the past year, I have challenged myself mentally to prepare individuals to compete in competitions.
I am working to continue to broaden my knowledge base over the next year and expand CrossFit 45 North’s competitive program. Working with people to make them better, whether it is physically or mentally, has become a huge passion for me. I love CrossFit because it truly is life changing. It not only opens the door to a pathway to fitness but is also the conduit for forming a strong community; nowhere else have I found such a bond with people of all walks of life and I would not trade it for anything.
