I’m going to start off by saying I LOVE CROSSFIT!!! Like a lot of people, I didn't think that it was something that was for me. But after my first WOD I was in love, ADDICTED from the start!!! I owe it all to my good friend Cheyne. It took him a while to explain and convince me to try it out, and I’m so glad I did! I still remember the first WOD I ever did and from then, I couldn't get enough. Over 2 years later I’m still WODing and got my Level 1 and certification for CrossFit Kids. I also convinced my boyfriend (that was tough!) and friends to try it out, I’m still working on my mom and sister. Not long after they started, they learned to embrace the suck and love the sport.
I have always been involved with sports and living an active lifestyle. I started soccer in the second grade and played all through highschool, at HPA. That was my first true love and probably the reason I didn't think I would ever be that into a sport again. I got to play other sports in highschool like basketball and volleyball. But my whole life I’ve loved the ocean. When we lived on Oahu, my dad would take me to the beach weekly to fish and body board. Growing up on the Big Island that changed to deep sea fishing and adventuring around to find the hidden beauties in this place that we live. Needless to say, I love the outdoors. I’m so blessed to be able to live in such a beautiful place!!!
Now that I have been doing Crossfit for about 2 years, I feel that I am in the best shape of my life. Not only that, I’m surrounded by my brothers and sisters at CFK who have pushed me to become the athlete and coach that I am. I am so stoked for the next generation of CrossFiters and so grateful to get to be apart of it. I’ve always loved kids and being able to positively affect their lives and now I have the opportunity to continue to do that through this amazing sport that we all love.
