I fell in love with CrossFit after my first WOD, and have kept at it ever since. CrossFit is

something that has helped me stay fit and happy as a student, while traveling and as a new mother. I

absolutely love the CrossFit community, with some of my best memories made making friends at

CrossFit Davis and while training for a month at CrossFit Louvre in Paris, France in 2013. My biggest

testimony to Crossfit, however, was my experience in the sport throughout my pregnancy. I came to

Hidden Alley approximately 5 months into my pregnancy after deciding that CrossFit in my garage just

wasn’t delivering the motivation or betterment that I needed. I wholeheartedly attribute CrossFit to

providing me with the strength and endurance to get through an exceptionally long labor without

medication. Furthermore, maintaining my fitness accelerated my recovery, enabling me to keep up with

my newborn.

 

I became a CrossFit coach to share my own passion for the sport. Just like life, CrossFit is never

routine. I am here to help members sustain a high quality of life through improving their stamina,

strength and endurance that life demands from each of us on a daily basis. I am here as an athlete, a

coach, a student, and a mom, and can’t wait to get you through your first WOD!
