I have always had a passion for sports and fitness and love to compete no matter what. I thought myself in pretty good shape until trying my first CrossFit workout, Fight Gone Bad. Afterwards I was left on the floor unable to move wondering what the hell had just happened to me. I was hooked. Since starting I’ve gotten stronger, faster, and gained more endurance than I thought possible. CrossFit Beaumont is my dream come true of bringing a new level of training to everyone willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears to attain elite fitness.
I got started with CrossFit in April 2010. I thought I would only go to one workout because I thought it would be way too tough; But after that first workout I was hooked. Neal and everyone else made me feel so comfortable and I knew it didn’t matter how fit or unfit I was. I’ve never been a fit person and I struggled with my weight from a very early age. When I started I couldn’t complete a full air squat or push up and had to scale every single workout I did. But the more I went the better I got. Now I can honestly say I’m more fit than I’ve ever been in my life. I am weighing in at my lightest, fitting into sizes I could never wear before; but the best part is I feel better. I have more energy when I play with my kids and I’m able to do things I’ve never done before like play all kinds of sports. Now I just want to spend my time inspiring and pushing other people to do better and be better than they ever thought possible.
My whole life I’ve been involved with cheerleading, gymnastics, track, the whole nine yards; so when I stepped into my first CrossFit class as a collegiate cheerleader in January 2011 I was expecting it to be just another day at the gym and no big deal. Wow, was I mistaken! The first fifteen minutes of class I was sweating more and working harder than I ever had in a gym. I knew that I had found my new sport, CrossFit. The more I came the stronger I got, the faster I moved the more I was hooked. I love that the hard work we put in constantly reaps results and that no matter what you’re doing there’s someone there pushing you or dying along side with you. Training others has been the biggest blessing and I love seeing our community at CrossFit Beaumont thrive!
