First and foremost my goal as a trainer is to help you reach your health and overall fitness goals. I genuinely care about you as an individual not just a client. My love for CrossFit began in Oct 2011. I was introduced to this program by a dear friend and refuse to do anything else. For a simple reason, IT WORKS! I have always lived an active life. In high school I played multiple sports but never was gifted enough to excel in any particular sports arena. What I love most about CrossFit is the competitiveness of the sport. I thrive on competition as this aspect makes you and I push harder. In 2004 I joined the United States Army and served as a Scout Sniper in an Airborne Reconnaissance Unit. I deployed to Iraq in 2006 and left the Army in 2008. Upon returning home I was lost, completely. I had issues readjusting to everyday life and struggled immensely. I floated around from job to job and was never truly happy. Until the day I was introduced to this program. I have never looked back. I have always been into fitness and studied Exercise Science in college. As your trainer I will push you to your true potential. I have only one rule when you come to CrossFit Battleground and that is under no circumstance will you ever say," I CAN'T!" You can do anything if you put your mind and heart into it.
CrossFit Level 1
Since playing varsity tennis in high school, fitness has been a part of my life. For years I have been on a mission to find the best fitness modality for me. I have tried it all from Bikram Yoga to Zumba, and everything in between. After years of searching I found that CrossFit was my missing link. The reason I became a CrossFit athlete is to build strength inside and out. I have struggled with trying to be a “skinny girl” for what feels like forever. I had finally realized that I am just not built that way and I have embraced that now. It wasn’t until I watched the 2011 CrossFit Games that something clicked within me. Who wants to be a “skinny girl” when you can be STRONG? The men and women in the games possessed confidence, commitment and a sense of accomplishment. I envied them. I personally fell in love with CrossFit because of the amazing community that you become a part of and the results are undeniable. I became a trainer because I want to share this program with everyone that I possibly can. I promise you that anyone can do Crossfit and you will see results. I am so excited to continue my CrossFit journey as well as help you along your journey! Be the best version of you that you can possibly be.
