What year did you start CrossFitting?


Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I got into Crossfit because I needed a new workout routine. I was tired of doing the same old sets of 10 at the “globo gym.” I love how CrossFit is constantly varied, forcing me to work on my weaknesses while making me stronger. That push and drive wouldn’t have happened working out by myself.

Why did you become a trainer?

I became a trainer in 2011 after I found myself helping others on technique and movement during class. I was naturally drawn to it!

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

Handstand push-ups.

What is your favorite cheat food?

Happy Joe’s taco pizza!

What’s your favorite superhero and why?

Superman because he has the strength, speed and the best super power of all – flying! No other superhero has all of the powers Superman has!
