Co-Owner & CrossFit Blade Coach
I was first introduced to Crossfit by a personal trainer of mine in 2008. My first workout ever was Fight Gone Bad and boy did it go bad! For the next 4+ years I only did CrossFit workouts from the main site or individually with my trainer and it wasn’t until I joined CrossFit Blade that I realized I was missing the key part of CrossFit….the COMMUNITY! After the birth of my first daughter, I was just looking for something to get me back into shape, little did I know how much CrossFit Blade would change my life. It was not just the intensity of my first WOD at CFB but also the support and cheering from the other members to help me get through it.
I have been competitive in sports my entire life playing basketball, volleyball, and golf throughout my youth and went on to play Division 1 golf at the University of Minnesota where I earned my B.S. in Kinesiology. After competing at a collegiate and professional level, CrossFit helped me fill that competitive void. My goal as a trainer at CrossFit Blade is to help every member reach their goals, then find new goals, and have fun doing it. I strive to help everyone believe in themselves and believe that their best years lie ahead. There is no better time to start improving your life right now.
