Tell us something about your life outside of CrossFit (career, family, hobbies, etc).
I have competitively swam for 13 years and now coach a club team at Council Rock North. That’s why I also leave in such a rush every 4:30 class!
My favorite book or movie:
I’m not a big reader but my favorite 2 movies are Inception and Shutter Island! If you haven’t seen them go watch them now.
My favorite local restaurant:
Taqueria Feliz! It’s in Manayunk and they have the best tacos and margaritas!
Tell us something that we don’t know or would be surprised to learn about you:
I do criminal background checks, so I know all your stories… Haha just kidding
How I was introduced to CrossFit:
Tori Hall introduced it to me. I didn’t think I was going to like it but here I am almost 2 years later.
My fitness routine before CrossFit:
Swimming and then after college, not much just running here and there.
My thoughts after my first CrossFit workout:
I think I’m actually dead…
My proudest CrossFit accomplishment is:
Finally be able to do a full rope climb and also getting a PR in power clean this past summer
My favorite WOD is:
I don’t have a specific one but any WOD with hang cleans or hang snatches in it
My Favorite Lift is:
My next goal is:
Bar muscle up?
How has CrossFit affected your life outside of the gym?
I am definitely not as tired as I used to be and feel more energetic through the day. Also, this is the best shape I’ve ever been in my life!
What I love most about CrossFit Newtown:
Always feeling like I have nothing left in me after the workouts! I love how everyone encourages one another during lifts and also can have fun and laugh but be in pain at the same time.
What advice I would give to someone just joining CrossFit Newtown:
Be patience! Everything will come together whether it’s movements/lifts/diets it just takes time!
Do you have any diet/nutritional advice?
I should be the last person to ask. I don’t really diet but I would say do what works for you and not what other people are doing.
