The moment I participated in my first CrossFit class 5 years ago in Springfield, MO, I knew I wanted to be a CrossFit coach. I have always enjoyed working out and competing and had been participating in sprint triathlons and half marathons. The races started becoming repetitive and I was looking for a workout program with more variety. CrossFit provides the varied workout and structure my family and I were looking for. I love that we can all workout together! When we moved to NWA in early 2017, we visited several of the local Boxes, and it was easy to tell CrossFit Fayetteville was the best fit for us. We love the community and support we have found here. Including the friendships we have made that extend outside the box. CrossFit is always pushing me to be better than I am. Whether it's moving more weight, faster times, a new technique or movement, or working on form, there is always something to strive for. I am excited to develop as a trainer and I am looking forward to the next challenge!
