Head Coach

CrossFit Level 1 / Crossfit Level 2 Trainer

CrossFit was too intimidating for me to try at first, but I was told by my friends that I would love it because I loved running and going to the gym. August 2011 I began my 101s at CrossFit Integrity in Charleston, SC. Although I don’t recommend it, I blew through my fundamentals in two days because I couldn’t get enough. Immediately, I found my passion – I wanted to coach, encourage, critique, get stronger, faster, and help people. Soon, my friends were noticing the changes both physically and mentally. I kept training and hoping to break records at my gym, and much to my surprise, I was asked to go to the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Regionals as part of the team. IT. WAS. EPIC. Fall 2012 I became a CrossFit Coach at CrossFit Alpharetta, and I've only gained more knowledge and inspiration. The most rewarding part of coaching is helping members to increase their confidence starting inside the gym and seeing it transfer to everyday life outside.
