I actually met Matt at a BBQ at Mac & Taryn’s about 2&1/2 years ago. I was asking Mac what it was like & if I could come watch or check it out or something. Then a few months later a Rhinoceros convinced me to try it out & I never looked back!

I have a big snatch now, so I go all the way down. I love how it makes me feel. It’s a time I get to clear my head and nothing else matters. Crazy how much more you are aware of your eating & resting habits. And always remember to drink water!

Continue to grow as an athlete & inspire as many people as I can to know that you can do anything you put your mind to.

Hang’in with family & friends…and can’t forget the wine & beer! AKA PR Fuel!

Any advice for new members?
Just show up! The only bad workout is the one you didn’t do.

Any additional thoughts/shout-outs/comments:
A special thanks goes to Brooke, my one and only training partner. You’re the one who pushed me day in & day out to reach limits I never thought possible. I still to this day get “good morning” txts asking how the WOD went. :) Also, to my 6 am crew. You make it easy to get up so early! And, to the coaches who have all contributed to helping me improve every day!
