CrossFit Movement & Mobility
Why do you CrossFit?
I do CrossFit for the daily benefits I get from it. Health and fitness makes me a happier person. I like setting fitness goals for myself and trying to achieve those goals to become a better athlete. I enjoy using my body and also how I feel both physically and mentally after a workout. CrossFit changes my day and makes me a better coach and person.
What’s your favorite WOD?
Anything with body weight movements. 🙂
If you could be immediately transported anywhere in the world to perform a WOD, where would it be?
Our new box at CrossFit Potrero Hill!!!!!
How do you eat?
I eat paleo about 90% of the time. When I eat paleo I enjoy my work week, my work outs, and have more energy to coach. But I still love my treats! For me, it’s about feeling balanced. Sometimes that means going off the diet and eating non-paleo for the evening or having a couple glasses of wine with friends. Other times that means being a little more dialed in and strict. It’s whatever makes me feel balanced and that balance is different for me at different points in my life/the year.
Interests & Hobbies?
I like being outdoors and expressing my fitness in ways outside of the gym, such as trail running or playing team sports. I also like to travel, read, and spend time with family and friends.
