I would love to take credit and say that I sought out CrossFit all by myself because I knew it would be a perfect fit for me, but I would be lying. By default of being related to the owners, I started CrossFit in 2012 when Equity officially opened its doors. I didn’t know it then, but this was the best thing that ever happened to me.
Berek and Krista virtually forced me to join (not true, but they were very, very, VERY adamant), when I was at first a little reluctant. While I have been an athlete my entire life, CrossFit was something completely new to me and I had a major fear of sucking at it. I had just finished up my college soccer career, something I was fortunate to find many successes in. I was a two time All American, and leading goal scorer at Davis & Elkins College. I was coming off of what I thought was the peak of my athletic abilities. With no more soccer, and not knowing a life without sports, I knew I had a competitive void to fill. I owe many thanks to Berek, Krista, and the CrossFit community at Equity for filling that void and more. Intimidated me, going from a competitive collegiate athlete to a newb and amateur CrossFitter has now turned into me being the fittest and happiest version of myself. I love everything about CrossFit and the positive changes and people it has brought to my life.
While CrossFit obviously takes up the majority of my time (and I wouldn’t have it any other way), I also love spending time with my family, friends, and my fur baby Mya. When I am not in the gym, you can likely find me enjoying a good cocktail, doing something outdoors, or enjoying a lazy Sunday watching football.
