CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
I grew up playing different organized team sports. In high school, I settled on basketball as my primary means of fitness through my teenage years. In college, I stayed active through intramurals and pick-up basketball games. After graduation, I realized I didn’t know how to work out on my own. When I started doing CrossFit, it was in the CrossFit coach’s garage gym. As I moved to different places over the years, CrossFit has always provided me with an immediate community and routine. It has been as beneficial for my mental and emotional health as it has for my physical health. It keeps me engaged because there is always something new to learn, skills and movements to improve, and ultimately it provides positive results. I think CrossFit, in general, respects that most people can’t spend hours in the gym every day, so it provides tremendous value in a short amount of time, allowing people to become and stay healthy while simultaneously being able to focus on multiple areas of their life.
