Born and raised in Frankfort, I played basketball and softball recreationally and danced at a local studio for many years. I didn’t necessarily like to work out or push my body to new challenges until I joined the United States Marine Corps in 2002. After my five years of service, I got out of the Marine Corps to start a family and became a full time, stay at home mom.
I was first introduced to CrossFit in the Marine Corps, as they were starting to incorporate it into our training. Like Jason, I was never around a box to do it on a regular basis until 2011 when we found CrossFit Reston. I am so thankful for the months we had at Reston and under the guidance and leadership of a world class box, because it has shaped much of what CrossFit Frankfort is and me as a coach.
CrossFit itself has changed so much about my life and my family. My children love CrossFit and making up their own workouts. I thoroughly enjoy working with our CrossFit Kids program and helping young people in our community improve their lives and potential as athletes in their original sports. I love that I can accomplish in one, 12 minute workout what used to take me a full hour with my trainer. CrossFit has brought back into my life many things that I miss about my time in the Marine Corps. Pushing my body to achieve things never done before. The sense of community and camaraderie that comes from being part of a box. The fact that everyone is on the same mission at the same time and pushing to get through builds something between the clients that you won’t find at a regular gym. I love that the ‘elite’ athletes are there and encouraging the ones that just started their pursuit of fitness. I love that men and women can come to the box and not be self-conscious about how they look or where they are in their fitness journey because no matter what stage of the journey they are on, we’re all on the same one: to become better individuals, part of a larger community that we can impact to be better.
