I grew up in Dyer, Indiana but spent a good chunk of my adult life living in NYC. I’m no stranger to competition. I played sports for most of my childhood, and made the whimsical decision to pursue acting in NYC. Both things instilled a sense of drive in me that translates perfectly to CrossFit. I started doing CrossFit in 2019, but didn’t really start taking it seriously until 2021. I looked at myself in the mirror one day, and asked what was holding me back from getting in the best shape I could? The answer was simple. Me. So I dove in……and learned, and failed, and learned, and failed some more. I feel so deeply in love with the zen of lifting, the thrill of chasing someone’s time, or the excitement of cheering on my friends as they attempt to hit a PR.
