When did you start CrossFit?

What made you start CrossFit?
My high school’s strength and conditioning program was run by a CrossFit coach. I needed to stay in shape as an aspiring College Field Hockey player and decided to try out CrossFit. Was hooked for about 5 years then decided to give Olympic Weightlifting a try and fell in love.

When did you come to SLSC?

What do you enjoy about SLSC?
We have such a diverse group of individuals on our staff that all bring different specialities and personalities to their classes. This allows our members to get a well rounded fitness experience and pushes our staff to continue their development and explore different fitness specialities brought in by the other coaches.

What do you enjoy about coaching?
I love watching people’s progress and helping them realize they’re capable of much more than they think. Being able to pass along my love of movement, fitness and health to as many people as possible is the goal.
