Q: How did you get involved in the fitness industry?
My journey began in college when I worked with a personal trainer to get myself in better shape for cheerleading at San Diego State. I knew instantly that I wanted to pursue a career in this field and immediately after graduation, I moved back home and started working at a local gym. My clientele grew quickly and I knew I wanted to grow in the field. I pursued numorous certifications and then moved to Tennessee where I recieved my Masters Degree in Sports Management while teaching physical education classes at the university in exchange for my tuition. While in Tennessee, I discovered CrossFit and fell in love with everything about it. CrossFit allowed me to be competitive in something again and that just lit a fire in my soul and I have never looked back. The main thing that I love about CrossFIt is that it celebrates strong women and has allowed me to appreciate my strength as a woman rather than be ashamed of or embarrassed by it. Since finding CrossFit, I now love my body and all that it is capable of!!! Oh, and CrossFit also gave me the strength to carry my triplets to 35 weeks without any health complications to myself or my babies and my body bounced right back to my pre pregnancy weight within a few weeks of delivering. This never would have been possible without my CrossFit training.
