  1. I've had my Crossfit L1 since January 2019.

  2. Crossfit is a lifestyle. Doing the common, uncommonly well. It’s helped me find a purpose in my fitness and I’ve become stronger in body and mind. The Crossfit community is a place of belonging and that has nurtured my personal fitness growth.

  3. Through coaching I get to assist people in meeting their goals and watch them exceed their own expectations. It’s a joy for me to coach athletes at all levels and to be a part of their fitness journey. It also pushes me into becoming more knowledgeable of the Crossfit lifestyle.

  4. I’ve been Crossfitting since the fall of 2015. I started my journey with a small Crossfit group out of their garage. I was hooked from the first 3,2,1...go.

  5. I played many sports in high school, basketball was one of favorites but can’t say I’m much good at it now. I was a runner for many years after high school. But I consider CrossFit to be my favorite sport.

  6. I love to be with my Crossfit family, but away from the box I love to spend time with my family. My daughters are my favorites, I enjoy going to their sporting or school events. We try to be as active as we can but we also love to cuddle.

  1. I started my fitness coaching career as a personal trainer for the YMCA in 2009. In 2012, I found CrossFit and have since attended L1 and L2 training courses, as well as CrossFit Kids, Mobility, Self-Defense, and Masters specialty courses. As a CrossFit Open athlete, my best finish was in 2014 at #96 in the world, and #6 in the Masters category of the 5-state Central East Region. That year I also accomplished the JumpNrope 2-part challenge of 100 consecutive double unders, and 100 speed steps in under one minute. Most recently, I am ranked by CrossFit in the top 17% of women my age worldwide.

  2. I CrossFit because I love it. I love every aspect of it. No other exercise is as fun or has a fitfam community of support like CFWR. I enjoy the variety, the functionality and the intensity. CrossFit keeps you feeling strong and fit for whatever life throws at you.

  3. I love learning, and I love sharing what I've learned. CrossFit is fun as a workout, but even more fun to coach!

  4. I started CrossFit in November of 2012.

  5. I love all sports. I played every sport I could in high school and college.

  6. What I enjoy the most is my family. I have lived in Muncie since 1992 with my husband, Jim, and our eight children. Spending time with them is my favorite thing to do.

  1. I've played basketball my whole life and started lifting weights in high school. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2016 through my wife and have loved it. I got my L1 certificate in November of 2019.

  2. I love getting to workout with a group of people. It's so much more fun and motivating than doing it alone. The programming is also really helpful. CrossFit forces me to focus on things that I probably wouldn't on my own (like anything lower body). Maybe my favorite part is being being stretched to accomplish things physically that I never could have before. I don't have as much natural athleticism as I did in high school, but I'm stronger and more fit than I ever have been before.

  3. I like teaching people to do things. CrossFit has been a beneficial part of my life and it's exciting to help others learn how to get the same benefits.

  4. Since 2015.

  5. Definitely basketball.

  6. I work in full-time campus ministry which I love. When I'm not working I love to hang out with my wife and kids. I have a 4 year old son named Jackson and a 2 year old daughter named Penelope. They are the real workout!

  1. I received my L1 Certificate in 2019. In high school, I ran cross country and track. My family is very athletic and on the move. I often played sports (volleyball, basketball, tennis, baseball, swimming) with my siblings for fun.

  2. To take care of myself and keep active and healthy. The frequently varied and high intensity workouts keep me interested and engaged because I never know what's coming, and I always leave the gym knowing I got a great workout!

  3. I want to inspire people to reach for and achieve all they were created to be! I love the idea of virtuosity--doing the common uncommonly well. I hope to inspire athletes to practice this in the gym, which in turn translates into virtuosity in all areas of life!

  4. I found CrossFit in July of 2018.

  5. I really like to watch and play volleyball.

  6. When I am not training, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I like to play music and worship at my church. Cooking and traveling are also favorite pastimes.
