I started working out at Michiana Adventure BootCamp with Jim in July of 2007 with the intention of doing a four week bootcamp three times a week and calling it a good day! BOY WAS I WRONG…. I jumped feet first into this and have been loving it ever since. By October of 2007, Jim asked me if I would like to work for him and in December of that year I received my personal training certification. I am now a Level 1 Certified CrossFit Coach and also certified in CrossFit Nutrition. I look forward to taking many of the certifications CrossFit offers to further my education as a coach.
There is no better feeling in the world than walking into a class full of people and guiding them through the steps of a workout. If I am having a “bad” day…the one thing that can get me moving is coaching a class. I love working with all levels of people- I started a “Fit Club” at Schmucker Middle School – I coach the Penn Girls Rugby Team in fitness – I coach at the Corporate Boot Camps – and my original true love is coaching at the gym.
My advice to anyone looking into doing CrossFit is simple – ANYONE and EVERYONE can do CrossFit! I used to be an “I can’t” girl, I used to say “but I’m not athletic”….there is NOTHING more wrong! I went from never working out a day in my life, never being in a gym, never being on a “team” to finding my passion here at CrossFit Michiana. You CAN too!
