Weightlifting Trainer

Rowing Trainer

Favorite Movement: Overhead Squat

Why I chose CrossFit: I found CF after having back surgery in 2011. I needed to find a program that would help build muscle back and was introduced to CF by my neighbor. In the beginning, the goal was to get strong. However, as the years progressed, my main goal shifted to having the physical ability to do whatever I want outside the gym. The one-two hours a day I spend in the gym is not to be great at CF, but to be able to hike, bike, ski, play with kids, run, etc., etc. If given the opportunity to hike a 13,000ft volcano (profile pic), I want to be able to and have no reservations. I can thank CF for having that ability!

CF-L1 Certified

Coaching: I started with some assistant coaching in Charlotte at CF Jane last year.  After our move back to Indiana, I started up again helping with our on-ramp classes.

Favorite Movement: Overhead Squat

Why I chose CrossFit: I started CF in 2013, because I needed a change.  Running as my only form of exercise was no longer working.  But considering I wasn't an athlete growing up and I was starting at 30 years old, I feared CF would be too hard and I would fail.  However, once I got into it and became part of the community, the fear went away and it became a challenge to just be a better version of myself.  But it's not just about a hard workout and getting stronger physically and mentally.  Our community is amazing, and I have made life long friends that I wouldn't have otherwise.  Lifting heavy is always a good time, but lifting heavy with some of my favorite people is priceless.
