What year did you start CrossFitting?

2012

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

Fitness is my passion and has been ever since I was little. I grew up watching my Dad train for marathons and triathlons and so I think fitness is just in my blood. I started gymnastics at the age of 3 and haven’t looked back since!

Why did you become a trainer?

I became a trainer to help people become fitter, healthier and happier. It’s an amazing feeling to help a person feel the sense of accomplishment when they reach a goal, whether it be getting off blood pressure medication, setting a new PR or getting their first pull up. It is both rewarding and fulfilling to be able to make a difference in the lives of others by helping them realize that they are capable of reaching any of their health and fitness goals!

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

Handstand push-ups (I’m more comfortable upside down than right side up!)

What is your favorite cheat food?

Ice cream…yum!

What’s your favorite Superhero and why?

Superman because I always wanted to fly
