Having always competed in sports from a young age all through college, competition and fitness have consumed a large portion of my time. CrossFit provides me the opportunity to continue to compete on a daily basis not only with the other members of the gym, but myself. CrossFit allows me to challenge myself to be better not only as an athlete, but as a person as well. Most importantly, the relationships built within the gym are what drive me to keep coming back. It’s an individual sport, but the team comradery with other gym members provides that team atmosphere that makes it that much more enjoyable.
I thoroughly enjoy coaching at Grand Trunk CrossFit. We are very lucky as members of this to gym to be a part of this community, and all of the benefits that come with it. Other than seeing the gym members making progress in their lifts and workouts, I would say my favorite part about coaching is talking strategy and developing a plan for the daily metcon with members of my class.
