CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
I am from Jefferson City and attended Helias Catholic High School. I competed athletically in high school in a variety of sports, including competitive gymnastics, volleyball, pole vaulting for tracking and field, cheerleading, and weightlifting. I also coached gymnastics for four years. I first discovered CrossFit in high school while watching a YouTube video about Brooke Ence at the CrossFit games. It still took me a couple of years to face my initial intimidation surrounding CrossFit before I finally walked into a CrossFit gym. I quickly realized that CrossFit is for everyone and that there is no such thing as being “fit enough” for CrossFit; you simply must just show up consistently. CrossFit has completely changed my relationship with my body and what I believed I was able to accomplish. I enjoy the variety that CrossFit provides, and it fits well with my gymnastics and weightlifting background. However, it is the community and friendships formed that keep me coming back!
