How long coaching CrossFit?
I started coaching in February of 2015.
I’m the new Athlete Manager at CrossFit Midtown, and I’m looking forward to meeting all of the members! I also coach competitive gymnastics
I competed in gymnastics for 6 years reaching level 10. I was also a competitive cheerleader at Georgia College and State University. During my time at GCSU, our team won 2 conference titles and placed 2nd at nationals twice. After college, I did the normal “globo gym” thing for a few years before being introduced to CrossFit.
How long doing CrossFit:
A total of 3ish years. I have been doing CrossFit since fall of 2011 but there was a year or so hiatus in there. I’ve been back since summer of 2013 and loving every minute (okay, maybe not EVERY minute….)
Favorite CrossFit movement:
Bar muscle ups or any Olympic lift. Opposite ends but I love both! It’s exciting to see how much improvement overall with technique and strength I’ve made since I started CrossFit
Favorite movement to coach:
anything gymnastic-y, especially handstands. I love seeing people improve their gymnastics side of CrossFit!
What do you enjoy about coaching:
Helping people achieve their goals. It’s so exciting and rewarding to see people lift a certain weight or get a skill they never thought they could do
In my spare time I enjoy:
Sleeping, eating, adult league sports (kickball, softball), patios and the park
“Comparison is the thief of joy”
Advice to new CrossFitters:
Don’t compare yourself to others in the gym. You should strive to be better than YOU every day. And don’t take yourself too seriously, it’s not the end of the world if you have to scale a workout (slow, steady progress and small victories are better than injuries!)
