I am a PE teacher, swim coach, and avid CrossFitter!  I have been active my whole life, playing baseball, basketball, and swimming from kindergarten through college.  After graduating from Longwood University, I found myself very inactive and becoming increasingly out of shape.  I saw a flyer for CrossFit at the YMCA where I worked and tried it out. After my first WOD, I loved it!  The change in workouts every day and the positive community has only helped my love grow.  I have enjoyed the community and competitive aspect of CrossFit, and I wanted to enjoy the coaching aspect as well, so I earned my Level 1 certificate.  That learning experience, coupled with everything I’ve learned doing CrossFit makes me want to learn even more!
