Tell us about your fitness journey?

I have always struggled with my weight as an adult. I began a few years ago where I lost 35 pounds on my own and was doing at home workouts. It just didn’t seem enough and I plateaued. I became interested in CrossFit after I worked Thunderdome in 2015. My former PA I worked with was a member of CFTB and after one Saturday session with Coach Brian, I became hooked.

How has your fitness changed since joining CFTB?

I started in July 2015 and have never lifted a weight in my life. And now a year later, at age 40 with 4 kids, I am down a total of 48 pounds with proper nutrition from Visalus, the intense workouts from CFTB, and with the support from my amazing coaches and CFTB family, I am stronger and feel better than I did in my 20s. It has been a total life changer.

Favorite memory at CFTB?

When I did my very first PR on deadlifts with Coach Jeremy.

Any advice for new members or people thinking about trying Cross Fit?

Just do it!!! There will be bad days and amazing days. Always show up and give it your all. The only one holding you back, is you!!!
