Growing up, I have always been involved in fitness. My parents have owned and operated gyms and fitness centers since I was very young, so being healthy and loving the gym has always been in my blood. At 7 years old, I began competitive gymnastics. The sport became my life until I turned 16. While a back injury took me away from the sport I loved, a new passion fell into my hands, CrossFit. My parents opened an affiliate in Dothan, AL, and I instantly fell in love. My gymnastics background helps me on some movements, but I love the challenge of my weaknesses in weightlifting. I’m now 18 years old and not your typical college student, sorority girl. A typical day for me involves 2 a days in the gym, and good nutrition versus the freshman 15 and partying. I have found ABOUT TIME to be helpful in my training and wouldn’t trade it for any other brand. One day I dream of going to the CrossFit games, and I will continue to train for them.
