Head Kids and Teens Coach at CrossFit South Bend

I started CrossFit in August of 2009 and did the Baseline for my first WOD. I could not do pull ups without the band, but I knew this was for me and I was out to tackle any movement CF threw in front of me. I worked diligently to be able to a pull up with out the band and did so within a months time. The first workout I did with unassisted pull ups was Helen, with a time of 15 mins. Since my time at CFSB I now can do Helen in a little over 9 mins. That is progress and that is what we offer here at CFSB and why I love coaching so much.

I received my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate in July 2012 and have been coaching since. I gladly enjoy when our members come to me and ask for help on skill work.

My favorite lifts are Cleans, Clean and Jerks, and Back Squats. I love a challenge, EXCEPT Wall Balls. I despise those!!!!

My most memorable moment was getting the muscle up August 12, 2010.

I am a wife and mom of 3 children. You may see my son AJ with me a lot because he loves it here too. I was a former cheerleader for 8 years and coach for 5. So yes I tend to have a bubbly personality and enjoy talking and getting to know everyone 🙂

Coach

I began Crossfit in April 2013 after years of doing high intensity interval training. A few years ago I was looking into some different HIIT and I found Crossfit. I started doing WODs from the main site with my crew at the fire department. One of my fellow firefighters suggested I try his gym, Crossfit South Bend. I was hesitant at first but he was persistent for months and finally brought me in for a Bring a Friend Day. After meeting the coaching staff and participating in my first WOD I was hooked.

Joy Girl

I started CrossFit in March of 2011 by going through OnRamp with Carl. Once I was done with that, I started training using CrossFit Football. I love strength training & really enjoy the power lifts the most (i.e. back squats, shoulder press, bench press & deadlift). My most favorite lift is the deadlift. I also enjoy prowler pushes/ farmer’s walks as well as strict pull ups.

In June of 2013, I attended my first CrossFit Football seminar and became certified. I don’t have my Level 1 yet but it’s on my bucket list.

As the “Joy Girl” at CFSB, I’ll be handling the answering of general inquiry emails as well as various tasks related to memberships. Outside of CFSB, I work as the Development & Membership Coordinator at the Center for History in South Bend.

Fun fact: I have a slight obsession with the TV Show “Friends” and have a “Friends” SceneIt game that I will gladly beat anyone at 😉
