I crossfit because...I believe it is a good way to keep the body guessing. There are a number of movements to do (some are more fun than others) and always surrounded by great people.
When I first came to Kingfield, my main focus was Olympic weightlifting and still is. Since being a coach here, my interest for crossfit has grown further than before. Some of the members try to get me into class but I have to keep up with Coach Chris and our training in weightlifting. You will see me partaking in class from time to time though.
I coach because...It is very rewarding to see the progress people can make when you give them the right tools to be successful. For our barbell athletes, it is a wonderful feeling seeing them nail a lift on the platform in competition. The smile on their face when they walk off is priceless.
My favorite workout or movement is...I did Grace once because Coach Danny said I should try it and probably won’t do it again. My favorite movement is the snatch and front squats. Snatch just because it looks so cool when it looks/feels effortless. Front squats because I mean you squat everyday so why not do it with some weight.
My spirit animal is...Otters. I have always loved otters because they are playful and cuddly...kind of like me.
If I could be any food, I would be...Ice cream sandwich. I may look tough on the outside but I am soft on the inside.
