As long as I can remember I was always in love with movement – FAST movement! I was the girl that always wanted to keep up with the boys. Gym was my favorite class in grammar school and I loved each year when it was time to take the fitness test where you had to climb to the top of the rope, do as many sit-ups as you could in a minute and hold your chin over the bar for what seemed like an eternity. Every year I looked forward to this physical test, and every year I got that award!
As an adult I found a love for running and would do 5K’s for fun. I’d go for a run at night 4-5 times a week. When I was looking to switch it up a bit, I joined a gym and learned how to lift weights, so off the treadmill I came and onto the weight floor I went. This combination of running and weightlifting became an instant love and so I decided to become a personal trainer!
After a very short time, I found myself not wanting to use the weight machines anymore but really wanting to do more with weighted bars and plyometrics. I became creative with my workouts, trying to keep them constantly varied and always a challenge. Then I found CrossFit.
CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movement performed at a high intensity. What does this mean? This means that I can once again be that girl who climbs to the top of the rope, and does as many sit-ups/pull-ups as I can in a certain amount of time! This means that I can train like the athlete that I’ve always known was in me, that I believe is in everyone, waiting to be found. I have found a way to let the child in me come back out to play just a bit faster and just a bit stronger. I am always up for the next challenge and ready to take it – I am CrossFit!
