CrossFit Level 1 Certified (CF-Level 1)
I have been a runner since middle school. However, when I first got pregnant 5 years ago, I started walking on the treadmill & using the weight machines at my local globo gym. Despite my best efforts, I gained 60 pounds during my pregnancy. After giving birth to my second child just 18 months later, I was still up 50 pounds. When my youngest turned 1 in December of 2010, I told myself that I needed to do something about my weight. I signed up for a free CrossFit intro class & I haven't looked back. In less than 2 years, I have lost 60 pounds, done my first un-assisted pull-up, ran a half marathon in under 2 hours, & finished a full marathon all thanks to CrossFit!
As a Coach, I want to share my passion for CrossFit and help others to achieve their goals. My CrossFit experience was successful because of the support & encouragement from the CrossFit community & I am excited to join the Prevail Coaching Staff.
