Who are you?
Texas native (Hook ’em Horns!) but Colorado resident since 2014. I was a competitive rower all through college, and then coached rowing at both the collegiate and high school levels for a few years after that.
I’m a proud Hufflepuff, would run off donuts and pizza if I could, and I rewatch The Office several times a year (I can’t resist a good “that’s what she said” joke).
Why do you CrossFit?
After rowing in college, I took a bit of a break from fitness. When I tried to get back into shape, I was struggling to find any motivation because 1) I was working out by myself and 2) I was just spending hours on the elliptical with no results. Soon after moving to Denver, I found CrossFit and haven’t looked back since!
I love CrossFit because it’s never boring! Every workout is a different chance to push yourself and test your capabilities, both physically and mentally. I love that it can emphasize your strengths but also expose your weaknesses…usually in the same workout! I also love that the community embraces anyone that wants to be a part of it, especially at CFLD.
Why do I CrossFit at LoDo?
The people! This community is truly hard to beat. I’m inspired daily to be better as a coach, and also as an athlete!
