I was introduced to CrossFit in the summer of 2011. I had heard a lot about it and was really interested in trying it. I thought I was in shape, going to the gym daily and playing competitive team sports my whole life, that thought was soon changed. Little did I know I would be instantly hooked and my other gym membership would be ditched. We started training in my coach’s garage at 4:45 every morning, having never been a morning person; I willingly woke up at 4:20, put on my runners and headed to the garage. It was then I knew this had become my passion.
In March of 2012, I took my level one trainer course and began coaching when we affiliated, in May 2012. Being a teacher already, I had found a perfect blend of the two things I love. As the year progressed, my passion grew more and I had the desire to share this sport with children, so in August 2012 I did the CrossFit Kids certification and began Sheepdog CrossFit Kids.
I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing team with such incredible athletes. This gym is now my second home and the people in it are my family.
