"The small wins is what kept me going to CrossFit classes."
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer (CF-L2)
Burgener Strength Weightlifting Level 1
Just over 10 years ago in high school, I was at my heaviest weight. I played some sports, but mentally I wasn't prepared to get fit. I had lost some weight in college, but it was stagnant with little to no structure. Then a few years later, I was challenged to try something new in my hometown. So I "drank the CrossFit Kool-aid" in 2017, and I was hooked!!
My body showed some amazing and fun results right away! I competed in the CrossFit Open my first year in, where I successfully did multiple push-ups in a row. I even got my first pull-up the following year! The small wins are what kept me going to CrossFit classes. Moving to Denver in 2019, I quickly found my extended family at CrossFit Eminence. I was inspired to train harder than ever, studied hard to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate, and gained a true passion for coaching others. I became laser-focused on bettering myself, and others. It all came together. Today, I'm sitting at a healthy and strong weight, more than 30 pounds lighter!
My current goals at CrossFit Eminence are staying on my nutrition, getting a muscle-up, and completing the "Murph" workout with a 14-pound weight vest for the first time ever (I'll let you know how that goes)!
