At the time, there wasn’t a CrossFit gym within 2 hours of the area I lived in, yet my friend had been following the main site workout for years and was one of the most athletic people I had ever met. When working on a project in Minneapolis together in 2012, she took me to my first CrossFit facility and I got to experience CrossFit first hand.
In 2013 we moved to Madison and I changed careers. I started personal training at a local gym and working as an office assistant, coach intern, and bootcamp instructor at a local CrossFit facility.
In late 2014, I quit both jobs to assist my husband in opening his own tattoo shop. I jumped around gyms for a while trying to find the right fit for my new location and schedule, and then one day walked into Sanctify. I was dressed and ready to workout but ended up in a consultation with Josh. Lo and behold, I became a member a few assessment sessions later.
I loved the hybrid coaching memberships Sanctify had to offer and the community was one of the most friendly I had ever met. They were so helpful, understanding and supportive as I started school later that year.
Through the Nutritional Therapy Association, I became a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and opened my own nutritional and fitness business – Worthwild Lifestyle. With the flexibility of owning my own businesses, I caught myself spending my free time at the gym. Not just working out, but talking shop with the coaches. The rest is history. 🙂
In my eyes, CrossFit is an avenue that can give anyone willing to put the time in the education and ability to become stronger and more confident in anything they do. Functional movements and weight training helped me heal a major PCL tear (a roller derby injury), and I have seen many clients overcome their own personal challenges the same way.
Pairing functional movement with bio-individual nutritional practices, I believe you can not only prevent disease but enhance your performance, thus your life, beyond what many ever think is truly possible. All you need is a supportive community, and the right coach, to guide you.
