CF Level 2 Trainer
When I joined 5 years ago, I had been following a friend on social media who was a member. It left an impression on me that even though the workouts were physical, they were achievable by anyone. All you had to do was show up and there was an option for you to participate along with the others in the class. The physicality of CrossFit really is a lot of fun. Every day is different and you have the ability to look back at your past benchmarks and PR’s to track your progress for fitness, strength, time, and flexibility. The learning curve never ends here and you are constantly challenging yourself through new movements and techniques. I started wanting to be stronger in the gym and have been exposed to so much more than that including dialed in nutrition, increased flexibility, tackling Olympic weight lifting movements, and an intense cardio fitness threshold. CrossFit teaches you mental perseverance during adversity, and that crosses over to so many different aspects of daily life. I love doing it with my children and at 51, I now compete right along with Millennials and sometimes give them a run for their money!
Being a coach is just another role of challenging yourself at CrossFit, the learning never ends. The main reason for member retention at our box is the coaches and community. I love being a part of the reason that they want to come back. The members here are some of the hardest working, sweat-loving, and supportive groups of athletes I know. These people are gold and I like that I am given the opportunity to polish them up
