Growing up playing competitive soccer I was very active and constantly pushed myself. After soccer I stayed active by working out at the gym and running. When I had my second child I realized I needed to do something to get back into shape so I started running again. While that was a good start I just was not getting the results I was looking for. Along comes Crossfit….
I started Crossfit in March of 2009. Starting on the black pullup band and doing two pushups at a time on my knees I talked myself out of quitting after each workout for the first month. Coming from an athletic background good form has come easy to me so I made that my focus instead of trying to race the clock. Six months into Crossfit I was a completely different person. My next big challenge was tackling my diet. In February 2011 I started Paleo and that is where I really started feeling and seeing results.
Now that I am teaching the womens’ class at Next Generation I get to be a part of others’ success. I love seeing members go from being intimidated of getting started to being self-confident and determined to take on any challenge thrown their way. I am here to help in any way I can.
