In May 2012 I went back home from college for the summer and ended up working at a restaurant. It was a lot of late nights which usually led to also sleeping in late. My mom was a Trainer at Crossfit Dexter at the time and had actually been attempting to convince me to try it out for almost a year (Mom knows best) but I had never done a class workout before and didn't think I would enjoy it. After about a month home I found out about a morning class that would be great to get me out of bed in the morning and start my day on the right foot. I started my foundations that week and was hooked after my first class. The intensity, variety, and community is what made fall in love with Crossfit, and keeps me coming back for more. Not only has Crossfit improved my fitness more than I could have ever imagined, my nutrition has also improved every year. Crossfit helped me see nutrition differently and now I can't imagine going back to my old ways of eating. What started as something to simply get me out of bed in the morning has completely changed my life. I am the healthiest and fittest I have ever been in my life.
Motivation & Passion
As a coach, what I love about Crossfit the most is the community. The community at Crossfit Dexter really is something special. Every week I get to help the members here better themselves when they walk through those doors. This isn't a gym full of elite athletes, but rather everyday people with the goal to come in and be a little bit better than yesterday. I love the fact that I get to be a part of the journey with members towards things they never thought possible, whether it's getting their first pull-up, or running a half a mile for the first time. P.S. If you like Latin music, you are definitely going to want to be at one of my classes.
