What happens when you decide to stop competing at the highest level?
Former CrossFit Mayhem Freedom team member and three-time Games athlete Tasia Percevecz is taking on a new role and experiencing competition from a different perspective.
Having been a competitive athlete since the age of 5, Percevecz decided it was time to prioritize her physical, mental, and emotional health.
“You make choices about competition,” Percevecz says, “sacrifices to be the best that you can be, and so there’s a little more freedom there to experience different facets of life.”
Leaving her life as a competitive athlete in the past, Percevecz is using her wisdom to coach fellow Mayhem athlete Haley Adams.
“I have so much heart invested in that girl,” Percevecz says. “She just goes and crushes it all the time. She’s a superstar.”
Although she misses competing, Percevecz is proud and grateful for her career and is looking forward to this new chapter in her life.
“I did far more than I ever thought was going to be possible for me in competitive CrossFit ... . It’s been absolutely wonderful, but also the excitement of just stepping into something new has been really intriguing, too," Percevecz says.
