It might sound funny but CrossFit has made my life easier, here is why… CrossFit has made my life easier by giving me sanity through physical fitness.
When your motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and come in? When my motivation is down I find the drive to come in by getting to see all the members and coaches. I am also motivated by being able to show my kids the importance of Physical Fitness and maintaining good health, plus I feel better for the rest of the day once I get that workout in.
What is your least favorite movement? My least favorite movement is push-ups... upper body strength is a work in progress.

What would you say to someone that has never tried CrossFit and is looking to get started? Any tips or advice? CrossFit can seem so intimidating before coming into the gym but this group of people is so amazing, supportive, and non-judgmental. Once you come in and try it out the support and motivation will keep you coming back. Everyone is proud of one another and no matter where you are starting all the members will cheer you on! Do not worry or stress about having to be the best just keep coming in and you will improve.
If there was a “Tiffany” workout what would be included? A Tiffany workout would include the row machine, air squats, and burpees because these are some of the movements I have been able to improve most on since starting CrossFit.
