TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO AND YOUR FAMILY…
I am a momma to 2 crazy, loud, high-energy but loving, caring, and sweet little boys (you know them, trust me ;) ) Eastyn is 7 and Camdyn is 4. I am starting my 10th year as a Davenport Firefighter/Paramedic. I enjoy being surrounded by family and friends. I love to laugh, smile and create memories. I like to be outside, at the gym or just chilling with my minions! My goals and life aspirations are to continue to follow my heart and do what I love to do.
WHY DID YOU START CROSSFITTING OR FITNESSING?
My boys are my everything and they are the reason why I take fitnessing so seriously.
1. I want to make sure I stay healthy for them.
2. I want to make sure I am setting good examples for them when it comes to fitness and hopefully have them enjoy it as much as I do.
3. With my profession, it can be a very demanding job on your body, so making sure my fitness level is the best it can be helps me stay injury free.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WORKING OUT AND WHY DO YOU CONTINUE?
The thing I love most about working out is it is a time I get to be me, it is a time where I can just let go, take a deep breath from all the craziness in our everyday lives and reset myself.
I continue working out because it is something I have done since grade school. I have that drive to make myself better each day, I love that feeling that I have pushed my body to its limits and feeling accomplished in the end. I love that my kiddos get to see that even when things get tough, when you put your mind to it, you can work through it.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE MOVEMENT?
The one exercise I would never do again if I had to choose would be thrusters of any sort...I STRONGLY do not like them! I feel there is something with being tall that makes them seem impossible and feel like you are extremely slow at them.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF OUR FITFAM?
The thing that I love about being part of the FITFAM, is we are all there for the same reasons. We are there to help live the best and healthiest lifestyles we can. It does not matter your fitness level, every one welcomes everyone with open arms. The support, encouragement and friendships that you build as part of the LIVEACTIVE family is next to none. I am blessed to call this gym my family!
