Back in 2011 when I walked into CrossFit Belltown for a bootcamp class led by Coach Eric, little did I know that it would not only be a humbling experience, it would soon turn me to the CrossFit movement. Since that day, I have gone on to participate in several CrossFit Opens (an annual worldwide competition), attain my CrossFit Level-1 Certificate -and- participate at local CrossFit competitions and an Olympic Weightlifting meet.
That said, I now strive to emulate the CrossFit definition of general physical preparedness, where I can now tackle life and the many sports/activities that I love. Even as I age, CrossFit Belltown keeps me fit and ready, whether I am back-country snowboarding, playing flag-football, or signing up for my next Olympic Lifting competition!
I now have the fine privilege to help my fellow athletes learn and refine their gymnastics movements at CrossFit Old Fashion. Having the opportunity to help others attain gymnastic skills has turned out to be such an amazing experience for me. To quote the Greek philosopher Aristotle, “Teaching is the highest form of understanding.”
