Black Belt in Taekwan-do
I was a cheerleader in high school. In my 20’s I started Taekwon-do and received my black belt. I competed nationally, internationally and was a member of the US Taekwon-do team. All of that kind of fell by the wayside once I became a mother.
I had always loved competing and once the kids were grown and on their own I found myself missing it. I tried different types of gyms and workouts but nothing stuck. My son was into CrossFit and suggested I give it a try. I fell in love with it almost immediately. Crossfit gave the competitive part of me an outlet. I can try to beat my best time or lift 5 pounds more than last time. There is also the great CrossFit community that lets us compete against each other with support, guidance, and understanding.
I love helping people reach their fitness goals and then watching them stretch beyond what they thought they were capable of. Nothing is as exciting as seeing someone get their first pull-up or hit a PR on a lift. I am into my 60’s so I hope to inspire the mature community with the idea that it is never too late to get fit.
