After graduating from graduate school, I missed the community feeling I had with my peers. I enjoy long distance running, but needed something new. I always felt bored in gyms, and alone even if I was in a room full of people. I wanted to find a way to challenge myself physically and mentally, and meet positive new friends along the way! Not only did I make supportive friendships at Crossfit Tallahassee, but I also found a family. Joining CFTally also gave me the opportunity to step outside my comfort zone, and face my fears and anxieties about strength training. I had never touched a barbell before CrossFit. I’ve become stronger, faster, and an all-around better athlete. I’ve even won two local races since joining CrossFit, I’ve become a better runner. The non-judgement and safety you experience with the coaches and training with other athletes at Crossfit Tallahassee is unique and paramount to whatever success looks like to you.
Motivation & Passion
Helping others be the best version of themselves is my main motivation and passion. As a social worker and CrossFit coach, I get to watch others empower themselves beyond what they had expected or imagined, which to me is sacred. At CFTally, I am able to take my passion for improving physical health, nutrition, and body image to the next level, and sharing that with others keeps me going (even at 5AM!). I have had coaches in the past that have made everlasting impacts on me, and potentially being that person for an athlete is beyond fulfilling. The results you see from the work put in are priceless.
