Then my mid-twenties hit and I had a lull in playing sports, at that time I loved to hike but I also loved the great New Mexican food. I gained a lot of weight and became de-conditioned in my twenties. As I neared my thirties and realized I didn’t feel good and I didn’t like how I looked. I tried to get back into working out. There were a few stutter starts with a general gym membership at the large gym by my house. In early 2010 I realized I couldn’t do it on my own and found a CrossFit gym. I had never heard of it before but was very intrigued by the idea of it. Almost immediately I loved the community and support and the fact that the workout was different every day. With the success I found through CrossFit and better nutrition, I was encouraged to get my CrossFit Level 1 certification in early 2011. I received my Level 1 in August 2011 and have been coaching since then (taking some time off to have a baby in between!).
I also found that I had a lot of questions coming my way about nutrition. In late 2013, Steve encouraged me to sign up for Precision Nutrition’s Coaching Program; I completed that in early 2014. I am now on my way to becoming a Super Coach with Precision Nutrition’s Level 2 Master Coach Certification (to be completed Sep 2016).
