I first heard about CrossFit a few years back and have always wanted to try it, but I was too intimidated to walk through the door. I finally worked up the courage when a group of moms got together to give it a try. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I was completely hooked after the first day.
I played sports throughout high school and the beginning years of my college career. At some point, I decided I’d start running to lose some of the weight I had gained during my first year in college and to get healthier. I ran races several times a year and ran my first Half Marathon in October, 2001.
Over the next few years, I worked full-time, got married, we bought a house, had kids, and life got too busy. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to stay active and how to become physically fit again. I struggled to find the time and to find something I really liked. I tried many different workout programs and diets. It all seemed like such a chore to me…until I found CrossFit. CrossFit isn’t just a workout for me. It’s a family, a community of people who help each other, push each other, and who spend time together outside of the gym.
I decided to become a coach to share my love for CrossFit with others and to inspire people just has I have been inspired by the great coaches at Schedule II CrossFit.
