CF-L1, RCSWI I have a master’s degree in clinical social work, and am currently qualified to provide mental health counseling services. I am also a registered intern working towards licensure in the field.
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.

Impossible is a mindset. Have you struggled with barriers to your fitness such as anxiety or depression?

Maybe you’ve struggled with low self esteem, trauma, poor body image or disordered eating? I have too, and it’s something you can overcome. Maybe medications and/or traditional therapy has not helped you reach your goals. You can improve your mental health through exercise, and there’s research to prove it.
