CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
I was never an athlete. I did gymnastics in middle school, danced in high school and college, but was never into traditional sports. I lasted half a season on the high school track team. As an adult, my office softball team was so desperate for a fifth female to quality, they recruited me even though they had to teach me how to throw, catch and hit a ball.
I’ve had gym memberships, watching CNN while pedaling to nowhere on the ellipticals, never seeing results from my “hard work.” After my two sweet baby girls were born, I cancelled my gym membership and got the ubiquitous jog stroller.
A few years back, Steve was running a boot camp outside the kids’ school. It was convenient and several of my friends did it as well. I felt good and even noticed some results (imagine that). When Steve announced he was opening a gym, we all assumed it would be the same routine, just indoors. But by the time we realized what CrossFit was, we were already CrossFitters!
I love the variety of CrossFit. I love that anyone can do it at their own intensity and get results, how we all have different strengths and challenges, yet muscle through the same WOD and encourage each other to finish strong! I love that each WOD is a step towards bettering myself, both physically and mentally. I love lifting barbells over my head! I have muscles!
I coach CrossFit classes and Barbell Bettys.
I live in DC with my husband Scott (who you’ll see at the gym), my two teenage daughters, and our dog Chase.
