I was introduced to CrossFit in 2011 by my husband (boyfriend at the time). He started at a big, well known affiliate and was instantly hooked. He said, "you have to come try this" so I did. As a fitness professional, I was a skeptic but went and had a great experience. The workout was of course really difficult but I was blown away by the coaching, attention to detail, and organization of a large class. Up to that point I had spent my career coaching youth competitive volleyball and earning a living as a personal trainer to adults. CrossFit was the platform to combine those skills into a profession. So often, coaches and sports performance specialists think that "coaching" is only a profession within competitive sports. I am a professional coach and I love my job. At CrossFit Mafia we coach in fitness, health, nutrition, sport, and life.

I chose "Fitness as a Lifestyle" 11 years ago. I was 35 and had typical male syndrome
(aka Weekend Warrior); I had my annual physcial and the doctor used descriptions like
"pre diabetic" & "pre heart disease". I walked out and decided to take control of my
health and commited myself to changing! I wanted to be around as long as possible to
enjoy my time with my family and friends. It is a constant journey, but I am now 46, 30 pounds lighter, normal blood pressure, and doing events I would have only dreamed of years ago.
I found CrossFit in 2011 looking for something beyond typical training. I hated training by myself and wanted something more varied than standard programs. I was hooked from the start!
Why do I love CrossFit? I love working out with liked minded people who see fitness as the means to longevity and vitality. The impact CrossFit has on the community is undeniable, and I hope you find your fitness journey passes through CrossFit Mafia and you enjoy your time with us
