Tell us about your fitness journey. How did you come to Farmgirlfit?

I always worked out a little because I have always struggled with my weight, but around my 30th birthday I decided I wanted to run a half marathon and I have been running them ever since. I found out about Farmgirlfit from my friends Heather and Ashley. It sounded fun and I was wanting to work more on strength and lifting again. I used to have a personal trainer at a CrossFit gym for about 10 years, but she moved away. I decided to try Farmgirlfit, and I’m so glad I did. Best decision I made. I love it!

Who inspires you to be fit?

My friends, I like to try and keep up!

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

Probably just being able to look at a workout, feeling nervous about not being able to do it, but showing up anyway, and not dying!

What are your next health and fitness goals?

I still want to continue running half marathons and sprint triathlons, but I would also like to train for a full marathon and an Olympic tri, and possibly a Half Ironman…did I just say that out loud?!? FGF definitely helps with all of these!

Favorite exercise at FGF is? Least favorite?

I really like Tabatas and deadlifts. My least favorites are box jumps and burpees.

When the Grind is kicking my butt, I'm thinking...

“Kill me now!” Then when it’s over, “Didn't die!”

Favorite workout song?

Anything from the 90s…takes me back to high school

My favorite thing about Farmgirlfit is:

The support and comradery with the ladies. Everyone is so supportive and helpful! You may be the last one in, but no one cares. They cheer you on and keep encouraging you all the way. No one looks down on you, but they will help you challenge yourself!

How has the rest of your life been influenced by Farmgirlfit?

I’ve met some wonderful people and it makes me always remember to support and think positively for the people in my life.

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

Work and just spending as much time with friends as possible, getting outdoors and enjoying our area

I'm proud...

That I may not be the skinniest I’ve ever been, but I definitely feel healthy, confident, and stronger than ever!

Team I'm always rooting for:

My friends

My hero is

My mom

My happy place is:

On the water

Guilty pleasure:

Ice cream

Any advice for new members or your fellow farmgirls?

You will love it, it may look hard but it’s great!

Anything else to share?

I just really appreciate everything that FGF has to offer, and that everyone at the gym is always so inviting and encouraging…it really makes you want to come back again, again and again!
