I joined Crossfit Stamford in May of 2013 having just graduated from UMaine and finishing my D1 college swimming career. I have been a competitive swimmer and water polo player since the age of 8; I also played the traditional land sports, like soccer, baseball, basketball and volleyball.

At UMaine some of my teammate’s and I began using the Crossfit principles to work out. After a few weeks- I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to get back to CT and really see what Crossfit was all about. The first time I finished a workout at Crossfit Stamford, all sweaty, mentally and physically drained I looked past the clouds of chalk to see that there was this amazing supportive community of people cheering and helping each other push through their work outs. This is my favorite aspect of Crossfit. Not just the physical exertion it has on the body but also the mental stabilization you need in order to complete the workouts and that comes from the support you get in the gym. When you can become mentally strong you can grow, not only as an athlete but also as a person as well. The best part about CFS is that no matter how gritty the workout gets there is always someone cheering you on saying “you’ve got more in you.” When your teammates succeed, you succeed, we all, as a community succeed, and that is an incredible feeling.

I have been so fortunate to work with some of the best Crossfit coaches here at CFS. If there is anything that I can do to help people reach their Crossfit goals, as a coach, I will. I am currently working on that at Crossfit Stamford, in one of the best learning environments I have ever experienced.
