I have lived in the Elgin/South Elgin area for most of my life. I was a competitive cheerleader and dancer for most of of younger years and throughout high school. Unfortunately, I spent many years straying from this path. I made a commitment to my health and fitness in June 2015. I started with running and ran many different distance. While marathon training I was looking for a way to get my strength training in and joined a CrossFit gym in fall of 2016. I fell in love and haven’t looked back. As a teacher by trade, I quickly moved into wanting to coach and lead athletes. I love watching others make progress they didn’t think was possible.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Favorite Workout/ Movements: Overhead Squats, Murph, Fight Gone Bad, Any long, nasty Hero WOD is welcome here.                                                                                                           Least Favorite Workout/ Movements: Jumping Rope, Deadlifts                                               CrossFit Strengths / Weaknesses: Strength: Endurance. I also think that most of the long mind over matter workouts are a great challenge and enjoy that. Weakness: upper body strength
