I’ve always loved moving and staying active. Whether it was playing sports or just biking around town with friends, you could probably find me outside. I found it difficult to stick to one sport in high school because I wanted a taste of everything, but I
knew I had to stay active throughout my college years. During the summer before starting college, however, I got lazy and barely did anything physical besides an occasional bike ride or some recreational tennis. I also developed terrible eating habits, and while I didn’t gain any serious weight (thanks overactive metabolism), my body composition changed significantly and I was slowly losing athleticism and motivation to exercise. I decided to take action and enrolled myself in a fitness class that semester. As the months rolled by I was growing tired of the monotonous routine and knew that I was on the road to burning out. I started doing workouts from a video program with my mom that used elements of CrossFit so I decided to investigate.
The rest is, as cliché as it may sound, history. I’ve been a “CrossFitter” for just over two years now and it has become a passion I never knew I had. CrossFit is not only the sport of fitness, it’s a lifestyle that has positively impacted the lives of so many around the world. I became a coach to spread my love of health and fitness and to be there to celebrate each victory, no matter how small. The best part of CrossFit is that the learning process is never over, nothing is ever easy, and the community is full of amazing people.

Fitness and being physically active has always been something I am extremely interested in. I’ve always had a love for fitness and played every sport growing up from ice hockey, football, soccer, basketball, softball, you name it. I played field hockey and basketball at William Paterson University and shortly after my career there had ended, I found CrossFit. It began to give me something to challenge myself in again. It has introduced me to some of my best friends and taught me and my family how to live a healthy lifestyle. Bringing that knowledge through coaching to share with other people has been something I have grown very passionate about as well. I have been coaching CrossFit for two years, personal training for four years, and currently coaching basketball at William Paterson University.

I started CrossFit in 2012 when I reluctantly purchased a groupon for “boot camp classes”. I was in graduate school, very out of shape and hoping that another groupon (following yoga, kickboxing & globo gyms) would be the kick start that I needed to get back on track. CrossFit has been that and more for me; it has provided me with lasting friendships, never-ending support both in & out of the gym and most importantly, the confidence to try every day to be better & stronger than the last. Since that day, I was hooked! I can honestly say that CrossFit is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Similarly to my social work career outside of the gym, I truly love helping athletes with building confidence & reaching their own personal goals. I love the changing nature of fitness that CrossFit provides; each day is something different & more exciting than the last. No matter how proficient one may feel after years of CrossFit, there will always be another WOD that will remind you that there is always another PR (personal record) to reach for 🙂 Watching athletes learn & develop new skills to reach their full potential is what I love to do. This sport has had such a profound and positive impact on so many people across the nation and it is my hope that I can have as great of an impact on my community at Crossfit Mahwah.
