Crossfit Level 1
When I graduated college I wanted to find a work out routine that would help me stay in shape. In 2013, I walked into my first Crossfit gym and instantly fell in love. The biggest thing I struggle with is lacking confidence in myself and my abilities. Crossfit has helped me gain confidence in myself in so many ways. I am lucky to be surrounded by a positive community that encourages me on a daily basis.
It wasn't until about 2015 when I did my first competition, Superfit Richmond, and there's been no looking back. There's nothing better than the rush of being on the competition floor and doing well / winning helps too :). I've been able to compete at Power Athlete Team Series, Wodapalooza, Granite Games, many local competitions and recently qualified for CanWest.
Everyday I enter the gym is another day I am able to face fears, try something new and push myself to be a better person than I was before. This is what I find to be so great about the gym; everyone is able to come and try something new or push a little harder than the day before; improving 1% daily.
Motivation & Passion
I really hope to be an inspiration to other women and specifically young women. Growing up I was a cheerleader and grew up in a society where being thin was supreme. I was never taught that it's cool to be strong or fit. I really hope that I can be a factor in other women stepping outside their comfort zone and pushing towards whatever goals they may have. Always remembering to focus on your lane and your goals; not comparing yourself to others. " Who run the world? Girls."
