- CrossFit Level 1 – June 2018
- CPR/AED Certified
Physical fitness did not become a priority of mine until college. Influenced by one of the greatest instructors of all time, I found my niche in the field of sports science. Starstruck by how much a single person could impact a group of individuals, I decided to dive into my teachings and learn as much as I could for as long as possible. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at the University of Houston to further my studies in an effort to reach more people in need.
Before college I trained in almost every sport, from football to boxing to aerobics – specifying my training to meet the requirements of the sport. However, I often lost my motivation to succeed because the results just weren’t there. Of course, it was partially my fault. I lacked a solid understanding of how significantly nutrition impacted my progress. CrossFit is the only sport, in which I have participated, where nutrition is regularly discussed in training.
For me, CrossFit has been the most physically and mentally demanding sport. It is a test of overall fitness – speed, strength, agility, gymnastics and everything in between. As an athlete you may never be great in all aspects of fitness, but though CrossFit you’ll be good at all of them. Becoming a coach has helped me push the boundaries of what I only dreamed of accomplishing. Moving forward, I continue to learn, I continue to train and strive to be the best version of myself to inspire those around me.
