1. What got you into CrossFit?
My best friend coming home from a tour in Iraq, mentioned a new workout he was getting into called CrossFit. He raved about its impacts and how much he loved it. After some hesitation and coercing, I came into a foundations class at CFOT. Initially, I didn’t really understand it, but quickly I found myself looking into what the WOD was going to be every day. Planning on how I was going to attack each workout and analyzing what I could have done better after each one. I had a foundation in powerlifting and found Crossfit to challenge me and bring me to the next level of fitness. It has been a life-changing experience full of friendship, PR’s, and re-defining fitness.
2. What got you into coaching?
MO-tivation!! Coaching is natural and fun way to learn and interact with people. I found myself talking, giving/taking tips, and becoming an individual people looks towards for guidance. Coaching is a great way for me to give back to the community. It’s always a learning process, but a fun one!
3. What is the most rewarding part of coaching so far?
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone set a goal, and helping them achieving it. The look on their face and sense of accomplishment is what it’s all about. Being a part of that is truly a powerful experience.
