I am originally from Lorton, VA (outside of DC) and I moved down to North Carolina two years ago (Nov 16 will be 2 years exactly!) to be with Jacob. Jacob and I went to high school together but didn’t start dating until college. We’re both super competitive. One of our favorite things to do together is work out … especially when I beat him in WOD’s 🙂
My degree is in Exercise and Sport Science, so I’ve always been interested in fitness/health. I think it’s so cool how changing or implementing exercise and positive nutritional habits can change a person’s body. it’s like our bodies are science experiments that we get to manipulate on a daily basis! I started CrossFit after I graduated college. I wanted to find something to do so I wouldn’t gain weight. I realized going to the gym alone wasn’t providing enough motivation. Joining CrossFit was hands down the best decision I’ve ever made. Oh, and Jacob’s a good one, too!
Oh man! I love a good chipper! And, if it includes deadlifts, cleans, wall balls and/or handstand push-ups … I’M IN!
I can’t pick out one specific accomplishment that I’m most proud of since starting CrossFit, but every competition I’ve been in, I walk away feeling so proud and happy. I’ve had some great opportunities and there’s no better feeling than pouring your heart into a competition. Competing is by far one of my favorite things.
I became a CrossFit Trainer because I love helping others. It makes me happy to watch others succeed and makes me even happier when I can assist someone to reach a goal.
I love 611 because of the community. When I first moved down, I lived in Fayetteville and I would drive out to Southern Pines just for Saturday morning Sport. there are just some really awesome, great people at 611!
