I have been active most of my life. Having raised 2 very active boys I didn’t have much choice! In 2009 I was finding it harder and harder to keep up with my boys and decided it was time to do something about it. I found a personal trainer and worked with her for almost a year, just long enough to learn a few things about myself: one, I felt better than I had in years and two, I really wanted to help others.
With that I decided to become a fitness trainer. I wanted to help others feel as good as I did. My husband and I converted our garage into a gym while I earned my fitness trainer certificate from The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA). Shortly after that I started training people in our garage gym. During this time I started hearing more and more about CrossFit and it piqued my curiosity. In 2011 I started following the WOD’s on the CrossFit main site and implemented them into our programming.
Coaching at CrossFit ThunderRidge has allowed me to help more people than the one on one coaching I do in our garage. I love the box community and the supportive environment. It’s fun and rewarding to help others reach their health and fitness goals.
