I have always worked out due to being a college athlete. I got pregnant with my daughter and was placed on exercise restriction, which
was a bummer, because I loved working out. Then after my daughter was born, I couldn’t find the time to fit it into my schedule or find
something I could stick to.
About 1.5 years after I gave birth, I was watching a Fox 29 segment and saw this gym in my neighborhood flipping tires and thought
well that is right up my alley! I drove by a few times and didn’t stop. A few months later, I saw a Groupon for CrossFit Renaissance.
I went to check it out and here I am 5 years later!
I love watching newer members succeeding; doing things they never thought possible, hitting Personal Record lifts or beating a previous
score on a WOD; watching our senior members getting stronger and living healthier, independent lives.
Showing my daughter that woman are strong, independent and beautiful!
Inspiring newer members to work hard. I have been given the nickname “Wonder Woman” so I have to give that nickname
the respect it deserves LOL
When I was in college, they used to call me “Little”. It wasn’t for obvious reasons, (I am 5 feet tall)but because I always
sported my alma mater’s gear, Little Flower!
