My love for fitness At the age of four my parents signed me up for gymnastics and I stuck with it through college. I had the opportunity to attended Boise state university on a full ride athletic scholarship. My junior year I got married and we moved to Monterey California. I experienced a bit of an identity crisis going from full time student athlete to home maker however, it didn’t take long to find a new hobby; muay thai and life felt balanced once again. After a couple years of marriage we had our first baby and I was determined to find a balance between family and fitness. There were some days it seemed impossible to get to the gym and so I would just let it go, recognizing that the gym was there for my enjoyment and not one more thing for me to feel guilty about. However, having a set schedule definitely helps especially when juggling my kids’ and husband’s needs’. I feel extremely grateful to have a husband who has always been supportive, encouraging me to take that time for myself. It was February of 2010 when I stepped into my first crossfit gym. Up until then I had been working out at a regular gym always trying out their new classes, anything from spin, yoga or step aerobics occasionally hitting the weights with a work out I had seen in oxygen magazine. But after a couple months of crossfit I was hooked and there was no going back. One of the reasons I love crossfit so much is that it includes so many training aspects from different sports. It’s an A.D.D person’s heaven, there is no time for boredom.! Last year was my first year competing in crossfit. I participated in the open and qualified for regionals with our team WCF, but that was the end of the road. After a short reprieve in training this past summer I decided I really wanted to make it to the 2012 games and started signing up for every comp I could. I’ve had a lot of growth as an athlete and with each competition I come away feeling more and more confidant in my abilities I think fitness should be unique for everyone, finding whatever it is that you love to do. I also am a big believer in goal setting! It definitely helps whether it’s how many days a week you’re going to make it in to the gym, an increase in strength, or getting ready for a specific competition. Our goals are powerful and can pull us through the obstacles in life!
