I have been involved in sports my whole life. I started playing softball at five years old and continued all the way up through high school. When I was nine, I started riding and training horses. In high school, I trained kids to ride horses and coached tee ball for my church on the weekends. I joined the fire academy and that is when I discovered CrossFit. If it wasn’t for CrossFit, I would have never passed the fire academy, working out at planet fitness just wasn’t enough! In CrossFit, I discovered Olympic Weightlifting and quickly fell in love with it, just as fast as I did with CrossFit itself. Now, I regularly compete in weightlifting competitions.
WHAT CROSSFIT MEANS TO ME?
CrossFit helped me pass the fire academy, if I had never found CrossFit and I was still training at Planet Fitness I am very sure that I would have failed and I don’t know what I would be doing with my life! That’s why I love CrossFit, because no matter what your goal is in the fitness world, CrossFit will help you reach that goal. Whether your goal is weight loss or to be a better athlete, CrossFit helps both ends of the spectrum and better yet, it’s not just for college kids, it’s for people of all ages from kids to career professionals! Also CrossFit isn’t like other gyms that you walk into with your headphones in, it’s a community, no one is a better athlete than anyone else here, we are all here to be a better version of us and we do it as a family.
