Tell us about your fitness journey, and how you came to Farmgirlfit:

I had been doing Crossfit for a few years, and when our gym closed, I was left wondering what my next physical challenge might be. Lacking a coach and a group of athletes to work out with, I decided to try FGF. I wasn't sure how I would like working out with only women, but now I know that FGF is a blessing, and have made it my new home. I know I'm here for a reason. I feel valued and well taken care of. I continue to be impressed with how important it is to the coaches that each member feels welcome and appreciated, and with how much FGF gives back to their members. Makes me proud to represent FGF to the greater community!

Who/what inspires you to be fit?

Health and wellness are very important to me. I find that life is more enjoyable when I feel strong! I also want to be a good remodel for my clients who struggle with being motivated in life. I'm inspired to be fit, so I can be an inspiration to others. At least that’s my hope.

What has been your greatest fitness/performance accomplishment so far?

This is probably yet to be determined with Fittest in the Park this weekend. I am excited to see what I can accomplish there!

What are your next health and fitness goals?

To become faster, and to do a successful muscle-up!!

Favorite exercise at FGF is:

BURPEES!!! Yep, you heard that right!

Least favorite exercise at FGF is:

Ring dips—Yes, I know a ring dip is part of a muscle-up, but on their own, ring dips are just hard, and without the excitement that a muscle-up has.

My favorite thing about Farmgirlfit is:

The community, plain and simple!

My favorite post workout meal:

Burger and sweet potato fries!

When you're not pumping iron at FGF, what does the rest of your life look like?

I love to enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking and camping in the summer, snowshoeing in the winter. And cuddling my little nephew (pic above).

My happy place is:

Steven's Lake and the Coeur d'Alene River

I’m proud…

To be from CDA, ID!

You might not know this about me:

As a kid, I dreamt I’d grow up to be a professional basketball player, and even won a slam dunk contest at a 3-on-3 tournament in Montana. My prize was a basketball signed by Shaquille O'Neal.

What advice do you have for new members?

Don't give up, we all started somewhere. The important thing is that you start!  You’ll be amazed at how quickly you progress, and before long new members will look at YOU and ask themselves, “How long before I can do that?”
