I have been involved in the fitness industry for over 13 years. It first started with running on my own for the freedom and escape – the runner’s high. The feeling of exercising led me to Yoga and the inward connection. I became certified in Yoga and traveled the world learning about yoga and helping others by teaching classes and providing a connection. Soon I reached a point where I needed something more aggressive. This aggression happened the same time i moved to Pagosa, which I fell in love with instantly. I started participating in roller derby and found a natural back for it. I have used CrossFit to help bring my performance up on the roller derby track as well as keep myself in shape and challenged. CrossFit reminds me very much of the team aspect that the sport of roller derby brings – we are all doing CrossFit for the same reason of health but we all have our unique challenges and talents while doing CrossFit. Despite that we all cheer each other on and help each other succeed.

Growing up I was not athletic and did not play school sports. Looking for an outlet for my competitive desire, I started lifting weights as a teenager. Within several years I set world records in the deadlift at the WABDL federation. I was then fortunate to meet and train with the then 2nd Strongest Man in the World for 3 years, which helped me for the next 7 years reach the rank of number 1 Amateur in the US. Something was missing though as I struggled with injuries, proper movement, and nutrition. Moving to Pagosa Springs in 2010 was a life changer for me. I found a community that I wanted to be a part of, a team of Derby girls that inspired me to train others and be a better coach, and a town that I wanted to create something in. Since moving here I have obtained several certifications for training and coaching, as well as switching sports from Strongman to CrossFit. I love the challenge and huge variety of movements that CrossFit demands. I am excited when I see someone learn a new movement, gain new confidence, and take a step closer to their goal – that is why I wanted to be a part of bringing CrossFit, its training and its community, to Pagosa.
