By the time I graduated I was well over 300 pounds and couldn’t believe that it had happened so quickly. Knowing that I need to get healthy I tried every workout video series that was popular between 2010 and 2012. While they helped get some of the weight off I found myself getting bored with the workouts. One day I was driving by a CrossFit gym on my way to go for a walk and I wondered how could they have such a big crowd to workout at 5:30 in the morning. A couple of weeks later I decided to join one of the classes and it was the hardest thing I had ever done. For some strange reason, it had me hooked and I’ve been doing CrossFit since then. In 2014 I decided to go get my CrossFit Level 1 training certification, so I could help give back the gym, Crossfit FFTC, that had changed my life. I hope to help other people change their life here at CrossFit Mix just like mine was changed the first day I did CrossFit.
As I continued to train I started to learn more and more about how to properly care for my health through nutrition, conditioning, body control, range of motion, and weight lifting. After years of training, I decided to become a coach to give back, to me there is nothing better than helping a member reach their full potential. I remember what it was like in the beginning of my journey and I love being in the position to help people reach limits that they thought were impossible. That to me is the best part of Crossfit, you may start out as a stranger in a class but you quickly realize that you are part of a team of people trying to better themselves!
I have been doing CrossFit for 5 yrs. I am 45 years old, a father, believer, masters athlete. I attend Renewlife Church where I serve as a Kids Church leader. Phllp 4:13 Just knew at the beginning of last year that I had to be a part of Mix CrossFit. So blessed to be a part of a family that believes in me.
Favorite thing about CrossFit is that it helped me come out of a broken low place in my life to see how an awesome community of people that encourage and support you to be better than yesterday to push through tough obstacles and get true it. Great support. Favorite part of coaching being there when an athlete works hard and see them PR and to celebrate them.
After I had my daughter I was at my heaviest weight with a bum knee, little self confidence and so unhappy. How could I let myself go like this? My brother invited me with him to workout at a local box and it was by far the hardest thing I had done in years. I didn’t want to go back. After having my son I quickly realized I needed to start moving if I was going to keep up with my kids. I told myself I would never allow myself to be a sideline mom. I wanted to be able to play with my kids at the park, swimming, bike riding or whatever it was. I wanted to be physically capable of picking both of them up if I had to. So I decided to try CrossFit again, but my “Why” which was my kids motivated me to stick to it! Then my “why” grew into something bigger! It was now the hour I took out of my day to work on ME! Just me, not my husband not my kids but the time set aside to work on being the best me, the healthiest me which has overflowed into being a better mom and a better wife. For me CrossFit was an answered prayer, it was a huge part in coming out of depression and is helping me live my best life! Quite honestly 21 year old me could never keep up with me now!
From there I decided to go twice a week. During that time I got pregnant with our third little boy. Turns out this is when I began to love working out. The encouragement you receive while working out and being pregnant is amazing! After my third was born I found a sweet group of noon mommies who encouraged me at the gym and in life. These ladies helped me to want to show up, want to try new movements, and helped me to give my all.
This year I attended the Crossfit L-1 course to help coach at CrossFit Mix alongside my husband and five other fantastic coaches. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be helping others in fitness. I know I will never be an elite CrossFit athlete, but I want to show others that there is something about being with a class of people who want to see you win. There is something about seeing someone get their first rope climb, first pull up, first handstand push-up, or hit a new personal best. It’s that feeling you get when you are dying when you are done but you know you pushed your body and your neighbor is dying right next to you. It’s coming home to my three little boys who squat with broom sticks or do wall walks for fun. That is why I CrossFit!
