Tell us a little about yourself.
Born and raised in Indiana where I met my husband. We got married right after I graduated high school & have been married now for 7 years!!! We have 3 awesome kids who are full of energy! We moved to the fort hood area almost a year and a half ago and we are enjoying Texas as much as we can with this crazy heat.
How did you get started in Crossfit?
I always heard of crossfit and found it super intimidating. But after having my second son I knew I had to get in the gym, I wasn’t wanting to do workouts on machines or by myself. So I thought I would give crossfit a try. After my first day I was hooked. And I was actually pumped and motivated to keep going.
When motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and get work done?
The days I’m feeling the worst are my best days in the gym. I love coming in and being able to focus just on my workout and not the complications going on around me. I keep telling myself everyday I get better as long as I stick to it. I took over a year off when I was pregnant and getting back into it was so hard! But I knew if I wanted to be better & stronger I needed to keep coming.
What is your least favorite movement?

What would you say to someone thinking about trying Crossfit?
Seriously, just try it!! The workouts are rough, but you will feel so great after! It’s amazing how much you will improve just after a couple months! & Stay positive!!
