CrossFit Level 1
CrossFit Kids Trainer
It has been a long but somewhat predictable journey that led me to be passionate about CrossFit. I started playing basketball when I was 8, and I kept playing throughout high school. I was also involved with soccer, volleyball, and softball. After high school I continued on to receive my Associates Degree all while being a gym rat. At that time I thought it was great and just couldn’t get enough. I was spending 2 to 2.5 hours in the gym, with weights and cardio all mixed in. Then I moved to Bellingham, WA. It was there I became an avid runner. I would run anything from a 5k to a marathon, on trails or road, in rain, snow, or shine. I was also introduced to road cycling. I would meet with friends twice a week to go on beautiful bike rides.
Then we arrived in Hawaii. I continued to ride my bicycle, persuading my husband to go along with me by buying him a bike for Christmas. I adjusted to running in hotter weather and loved adding ocean swims to my repertoire. I was asked if I would like to join a local women’s basketball team. This is how I met Tammie Akau.
Tammie and I quickly became friends. Both enjoying fitness and having a background in organized sports. Fast forward to 2011, where my family now consisted of 4 (husband, myself, son and dog). I continued to workout through my pregnancy, but needed to step it up once Tracen hit 1. Tammie told me about this new type of fitness she was introduced to and she was hooked. So I decided to try it out.
In January of 2012 I became a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer. I hope to always continue learning about CrossFit by attending Specialty Courses and utilizing every valuable resource to become the very best student, coach, and athlete that I possibly can. Now here I am passionate about CrossFit due to its unmatched results, second to none support and encouragement, and where I can be a mom who has the energy and skills to inspire my active son.
