What year did you start CrossFitting?
Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?
I originally began CrossFit as fitness training for rugby. I fell in love with CrossFit for its own sake and began coaching within the first year of trying it.
Why did you become a trainer?
Human movement was something that has always interested me. I studied anatomy and exercise science in my undergraduate degree as prerequisites for a physical therapy graduate program. I became a trainer to put my education into practice.
What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?
My first CrossFit workout, Annie Sakamoto was coaching the class and working out. It was manmakers and running. I remember seeing her lap me through a blurry haze of sweat and pain, smiling and laughing. I have never been as impressed and intimidated as I was getting crushed by Annie. I wanted in.
What is your favorite cheat food?
Cheeseburger and a nice strong IPA
What’s your favorite Superhero and why?
Wolverine. Legit superpowers. Best dialogue.
