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!
