WHY DID YOU START CROSSFITTING?
I was always active when I was a kid with swimming and dance, but didn’t start really doing fitness until 2009 when I started running. I started Crossfit in 2014 because I wanted to see a change in my body. I didn’t want to just “lose weight,” I wanted to look fit and healthy and be fit and healthy.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WORKING OUT AND WHY DO YOU CONTINUE?
I love the way I feel. It makes me feel accomplished in my day. I can tell when I don’t go. It’s hard to explain, but everyone probably knows what I’m trying to say.
HOW HAS YOUR FITNESS OR YOUR ACTIVE LIFE IMPACTED YOU BEYOND THE GYM?
It has made me a better wife, mom, coach and teacher. I feel like I’m setting a better example for the people around me. I also feel like I’m going to be around longer for those people.
IF YOU NEVER HAD TO DO ONE EXERCISE AGAIN, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Snatches. I really hate them.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING PART OF OUR FITFAM?
It’s a sense of community. People are here to cheer you on and keep you motivated. There is always someone there to help you or workout with you. It’s a fun place to be.
