WHAT YEAR DID YOU START CROSSFITTING?
WHY DID YOU GET INTO FITNESS (AND CROSSFIT)?
I got my start in CrossFit back in May 2008 at Outlaw CrossFit (formerly known as CrossFit Alexandria). It started as an internship that was a requirement to fulfill my Exercise Science degree at Virginia Commonwealth University. I then went on to become a full time personal trainer in Washington Sports Clubs, and continued teaching CrossFit classes- this included heading some classes at Andrews Air Force Base for a couple years, 6-1/2years at Outlaw, and finally ending up at the awesome CrossFit Woodbridge. I love to see clients accomplish goals that they would not have otherwise reached on their own for whatever reason.
WHY DID YOU BECOME A TRAINER?
I have always had an interest in health and helping people…This lead me to pursuing my exercise science degree, which then easily led me into the world of fitness.
