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.
