My Crossfit story – I first heard about CrossFit in 2010 but didn’t really know what it was. I tried my first WOD in 2011 in a hotel room while I was retraining into a new career field. The first workout took me an hour or so because I was resting a lot between rounds. When I got to Luke one of my friends introduced took me through my first workout. I thought I was going to pass out. Much like everyone else, I couldn’t understand how working out for 15-minutes could put me on the floor. I’ve kept coming back ever since.
Favorite WOD – Toss up between Amanda and DT. Yes I love barbells.

My CrossFit Story – I started CrossFit at District CrossFit in Washington DC in 2011 after running the Marine Corps Marathon (and struggling). I wanted to try CrossFit Endurance to improve my half marathon time and 10K times. I was hooked from the first on-ramp class. Obsessed was/is the better term. I am addicted to getting fitter. I got stronger, faster, leaner and more flexible. The family atmosphere at any CrossFit box is why I come back – the fitness benefits are great but your box is your second family. After a few years I decided I wanted to spread the CrossFit way of fitness, so I attended the Level 1 seminar and began coaching. I love coaching and helping others almost as much as WODing.
Favorite WOD – Helen
Certificates – Cross Level 1 Trainer
Goals – To complete all the Girls Rx. (and to do a half Iron Man)
