My Favorite CrossFit Memory: My very first open in 2014. I just started CrossFit a couple months prior and I found the closest gym to my home. It was such a humbling experience and I knew from the first moment I stepped through that door that I would not want to be anywhere else and have not left since.
Why Do I Coach?: Health is something that is very important to me. We live in a day and age where sickness and weakness are the norm and health and vitality are the exception. I want to be a part of the group of people who are strong, healthy, vibrant, and resilient. There is nothing I love more than learning about the human body, training and forming my body into the physical form that I think it is capable of becoming and helping others to do the same. Coaching at 717 has provided me the outlet to do just that.
