How I Train

I record my workouts
Athlete Cell (Brian McKenzie & Cody Burkhardt) are my coaches this year. They are truly helping me to get stronger and faster! My home gym is Crossfit Vex, but there are a community of Coaches in Grand Junction who help me. Crossfit Westco they are David Weaver and Kristen Smith. Their support is greatly appreciated. They are just wonderful. Cody Flemming and Amber Peck from CrossFit Junction have given me tons of input to pursue my dreams. The continued support over the past 4 years of Jake Knighton in my Olympic Lifting. Thank you to all the the people who have ever coached me. My training partners, Kevin Miller and Scott Queen are invaluable to me. My support from my children and parents have and do push me though the rough times that arise in life to make me a better person. I am truly thankful. I appreciate EVERYBODY'S help in preparing me for the 2014 Open. I wouldn't be able to do it without ALL their expertise and input. They are the best. My dad says, "it takes a village to raise a child," well - I firmly believe that it takes a village to raise a CrossFit athlete! Thank you to everyone! The support from all the CrossFit communities in the Grand Junction (CF Westco, CFJ, CF Vex, CF Purivida, CF Fruita) bring me much joy! Thanks be to God for continuing to bless my life and movement!
