It was over 6 years ago, but I can still clearly remember my first WOD, “Fight Gone Bad.” After seventeen minutes, I laid on the ground stunned at how effective the workout was. I went back to standard workouts for the next few days but it just wasn’t the same. A few days later, I completed my second WOD. At that point I was hooked and my passion for CrossFit was born. Having an athletic background in gymnastics and football, CrossFit seemed to be the perfect fit for me with its use of gymnastic and weightlifting movements. Once I graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in nutrition and exercise, I decided to pursue my passion for CrossFit and became a Level 1 CrossFit trainer.
