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 attended the L1 Trainer course 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 was a great start to the long endeavors ahead!

My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I started CrossFit the end of November 2012 and this will be my first time competing. I signed up for the 2013 Open, but had lower back surgery two weeks before it started and was unable to compete.
