Don’t dwell on what didn’t work in the past, look forward to your future. Don’t waste time being sorry, just strive to be better.
Sports were a huge part of my life growing up, and none more than gymnastics. Gymnastics has provided me with so many opportunities in life, including the opportunity to compete for Penn State University. After 20 years in gymnastics I found myself in a spot of being burnt out and not caring about a healthy lifestyle. After 3 years of losing more and more motivation, a friend of mine told me to come try a CrossFit workout. Not knowing anything about CrossFit, and never having touched a barbell before, I gave it a shot. After promptly being crushed by my first workout, I was hooked. I fell in love with new challenges and support that everyone brought to each other. Whether it’s CrossFit as a sport, trying to help improve the lives and health of others, or seeing what new limits I can push myself to, CrossFit has become my passion. My favorite part about coaching is seeing the changes and growth in the athletes I work with. Whether they are experienced athletes or someone walking into the gym for the first time, there’s always room to grow. I believe CrossFit is for anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life, regardless of where they are starting from. As a coach, it allows me to share my passion and give back others!
