Barbell Coach

I started CrossFit after gaining a lot of weight during my first cubicle job. I followed a bunch of fitness related pages on instagram to try to find motivation to workout again. I stumbled across a couple CrossFitters on social media and couldn’t get over how cool I thought they and their workouts looked. I grew up as both a cheerleader and dancer, so I loved the team aspect that crossfit brought. Long story short, I took my first on ramp class about 5 years ago and have not turned back since. CrossFit is the reason I fell in love with Olympic Weightlifting. I love everything about the sport of Olympic weightlifting and cannot imagine myself doing anything else. It has become both a stress reliever and a happy place for me. I am so excited to be coaching along side Chris and cannot wait to continue growing in this sport as a barbell coach!”
