About me

I want to be strong. I want to be beautiful. I want to be beautifully strong.

I joined the local Crossfit gym down the street from me in October, thinking I would get a good workout. Little did I know that I would get SOOOOO much more than that! Crossfit has a community, a support system, like no other gym I’ve ever been to. This is actually NOT a gym…this is a lifestyle.

I have the tendancy to start things and fall off the wagon…for EVERYTHING. I want this though…bad. This is where you come in. Knowing that there is a chance that someone is out there reading this motivates me to keep at it everyday, holding myself accountable. A year from now I want to be doing kipping pullups, not STRUGGLING with the “green band”. I want to be doing handstands freely, maybe even REAL handstand pushups instead on my knees, ass up in the air. I want a butt I can bounce quarters off of, and abs that if I were to be run over by a truck, wouldn’t feel a thing 🙂 In addition to you helping me, maybe I can help you. Maybe seeing the change in me, my progression over the next year, you’ll want to get up and try this too!

About me:

I grew up in a little town in northern Maine (that is NOT Canada..and we DO have running water and electricity. Yes, BOTH running water and electricity!) with my parents and my younger brother, Justin.

I feel like I have the coolest life on the planet! I live in Santa Barbara, California, working full-time with my handsome fiance Nick running our very own chiropractic wellness facility (Santa Barbara Family Chiropractic), part-time as a trainer at Innate Fitness  and working out Crossfit style as much as possible to achieve my fitness goals.

Thanks for reading!

    Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I actually think I met you in person once at the Lululemon in SB. I used to live in Ventura before we moved into an rv to travel the country. I remember talking to a girl who loved CF and blogged. I bet it was you!!! How funny! You look amazing and I love the premise of you blog.
