Biography

“Your biggest challenge isn’t someone else. It is the ache in your lungs, the burning in your legs and the voice inside you that yells ‘ I CAN’T’. But you do not listen. You just push harder. Then you hear that voice fade away and start to whisper ‘I CAN’. That is the moment you discover that the person you thought your were is no match for the one you really are.”

In late 2010 I was asked by a friend to come try a CrossFit class at CrossFit Danbury. From that point on I was hooked! For me going to a regular gym seemed so boring. I love how the workouts are planned out for the members every day. Each day we come to CFD and continue to improve our skills and movements with the help of our outstanding coaches. After being at CrossFit Danbury for a few years they decided to start a kids’ program. I am a nanny and love CrossFit, so it seemed like a great fit and time for me to begin coaching some classes. Seeing the enjoyment and progress the kids have from week to week has been so rewarding for me. I have coached some of the kids from the very first day we started the program and many more who have joined as the program grew. They have all shown amazing progress and had so much fun along the way. There is nothing better than seeing the kids’ faces light up when they hear what the workout of day is going to be for the class.

CrossFit has changed my life in so many ways. I met my husband through CrossFit and now we can watch our son grow up in our gym. The community and family our gym has become is like no other. I have made so many friends that I cherish and can’t imagine my life without it. CrossFit Danbury is a great community of people who love this sport and push each other to be better everyday.
