As a lifelong gymnast, from age 4-23, the skills I learned have set me up for success in CrossFit. Not only physically, but mentally. After breaking my neck and deciding to come back to competitive Division 1 gymnastics for 3 more years, then continue on to CorssFit, I’m sure I have driven everyone in my life to the edge of their seats while pulling out any hair they had left. I love it. And I love proving people wrong. I’m stubborn, ornery, determined, hard working and know how to have a great time… the traits of any great Crossfit Athlete, right?! I work full-time, but would love the opportunity to do CrossFit as my career. I don’t see myself ever backing down or getting tired of doing this. I am getting my Level 1 cert July of 2014 and can’t wait to be more involved in the sport, rather than just being an athlete. Competing in the Games 2014 with my team will be a great start to the adventure!
