My entire life I have been searching for something that would push me mentally and physically. I have tried many sports from cheerleading to soccer. I stuck with swimming for 10 years through high school, until a knee injury took me out at the end of my junior year. I loved being a part of a team that suffered through countless workouts and being pushed to the limit. For a while I slipped into a dark place and quickly fell out of shape for a few years. I tried the mainstream diets, and I tried all the 3 week workout plans that were supposed to change my life. None of those diets or plans worked. In March of 2014 when Crossfit Montco opened its doors my cousin Kellie said we were going to try this Crossfit thing I kept hearing about. In my OnRamp I couldn’t complete one single burpee, pushup, and I could barely run 100 meters. Coach Kristin never gave up on me. She said that everything could be scaled. I drank the “Kool aid” right then and there. The community never let me down, I was the last one to finish every workout for months and everyone cheered me on. I was never left behind. From then on out I knew I wanted to help any/everyone I could. I love seeing the pride someone has in themselves after finishing a hard workout that they would have never dreamed they were capable of finishing a week ago.
