My love for fitness grew out of a passion for snowboarding and mountain sports. I loved how so many different elements of human movement could come together and work to move throughout the environment in such an incredible way. The sport of fitness is an outlet that can help anyone of any level explore these elements. I am excited to work with all of you as we help each other continue to grow and learn about this physical culture. It truly is my passion.
I have always had a love for fitness. When I think of fun, it usually involves something active. In 2011 I was bored with my current fitness routine. I needed something new. Something that would allow me to be healthy and have fun doing it. Thats when I found CrossFit. I fell in love right away. I finally found a program that kept me focused, got me to my goals and allowed me to have fun at the same time.
I found my purpose in my life and it was time to share that same passion and purpose with other. Thus CrossFit Ironborough was born.
