CrossFit Level 1
CrossFit Level 2
I was a 3 sport athlete in high school and was fortunate enough to play running back at Carroll College. I have always had some sort of coaching, structure, and influential leadership in my life. I graduated and no longer had any sort of structure or training regimen to follow. This is when I turned to CrossFit and started coaching quickly after. I wanted to provide some of the high-level coachings I had received in the past.
Throughout college, I had gained lots of weight, some healthy and some not. My senior year I broke my right shin and was in a cast and immobile for roughly 8 weeks. It was important to bounce back and return to activity following a career-ending injury. This was a difficult time that was made easier by focusing on my fitness and leaning on friends throughout the process.
My favorite thing about coaching is watching an athlete's mindset change as they progress. It is awesome to watch a rookie athlete go from being nervous walking in the gym to doing RX workouts and increasing their confidence dramatically.
