What got you started in fitness?

I started CrossFit in May 2013. My husband, Josh, had heard of CrossFit and started a couple of weeks before me. After hearing him come home and talk about it, I decided to try it. I was hooked! I switched over to primarily weightlifting in 2014 after finding a coach to help me learn. I loved picking up heavy things!

Why do you continue with fitness?

I continue weightlifting because I enjoy the challenge. There’s always another goal to reach for!

Favorite Book:

All of them! I love reading.

Favorite Movie:

I really liked Dr. Strange, but it’s hard to pick a favorite.

Theme Song:

I’ll get back to you when I have one….picking a theme song is a big decision!!

Favorite Food:
