- CrossFit Level 1 – March 2017
- CPR/AED/First Aid Certified
Exercise and being active and healthy has always been important to me. Combine that with my career in HR and passion for helping others, I also felt like it was part of my calling to support others in achieving their goals. In 2009 I became a certified Pilates instructor in order to bring in a wellness program for my current employer and have been hooked on instructing/coaching ever since. When I first walked into CrossFit Equality in March of 2014, it was exciting and a bit scary all at once! At the time, I was lifting weights at a globo gym and training for and running multiple half-marathons a year. In addition to running, I also really enjoyed the camaraderie of group HIIT or boot camp classes. After my first WOD, I was still nervous, but I was all IN, I knew this was what I was missing!
I enjoy CrossFit because there is always a new challenge, always another potential achievement around every corner. I’ve learned gymnastic skills I never learned as a kid and my weightlifting and endurance are consistently increasing. I LOVE tracking progress over time and seeing how you improve. It’s changed my focus from what my body looks like to what it can do. Most importantly for me, I enjoy supporting and watching the progress of my CFE family, which is why I made the decision to become a coach. Trisha has built an inclusive community for members and a coaching team who are focused on helping athletes sustain a healthy lifestyle and achieve their fitness goals. I’m excited to be part of the team!
