I started CrossFit back in 2017. Embarrassed to say that at that time I was nearly 400 lbs. I had tried all the standard “Globo gyms” over and over with no success. CrossFit literally changed my life. Since then, I have lost weight, and become much more physically fit. Surprising myself repeatedly with what my body is able to do.

Now I get the joy of helping others find and reach their fitness goals as a coach here at CrossFit Salem. I have been certified since 2019, and coaching here since December of 2020.
