Bio

I have dabbled in a lot of things in the past 5 years, but nothing has kept my interest. I have found this in crossfit. In March of 2013 I lost my father due to complications of a heart transplant. Over the past 5 years I watched him grow weaker while fighting his rare disease. After his death I decided to change my habits, stop complaining, and be the best I can be in every aspect of my life. I stumbled across fit farm and decided to give it a try. I checked all my problems at the door. Crossfit is my outlet and an accomplishment every single day. I lost an irreplaceable father last year but have gained an entire family from it. I plan to continue crossfit for life! This is my first open and I can't wait for what is to come! No limits!

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I have been doing crossfit for 8 months. It is now a lifestyle. When I can't get to the gym I miss it! I look forward to what my gym has in store for me everyday!
