My fitness journey started in 2008. As a former college athlete, I let myself go and made poor choices after graduation. 40lbs heavier, I found myself at a crossroads and immediately chose the lifestyle of health and wellness and never looked back. I spent 2 years losing 5olbs by running and diet. On a high I decided to run 2 marathons in 1 year. I was so pleased with all that I had accomplished, but my body took a beating. After some rest and knowing I needed something different, I was referred to Albany CrossFit in NY by a friend in 2011. I walked in, met the coaches, and signed up that day. My first 1 on 1 intro course was the next day. I did kettle bell swings and burpees, my lungs were on fire and I couldn’t wait to come back. 7 years later I have been blessed with the ability to coach others in the sport that has changed my life. I have pushed myself outside of my comfort zone and met some of the most amazing people in my life. I even met my husband while coaching a CrossFit class! After moving to SC from NY it took some time to find a box we can call home, and we have found that at CrossFit Port Royal Sound. The Sport of Fitness will not only change you physically, but will bless you with strength, confidence, and emotional support beyond compare.
