My fitness journey started when I was big enough to hold a basketball. I had big footsteps to follow while my older siblings (and all taller) played collegiate basketball and baseball. I did really well with three sports in high school and landed a college scholarship to play basketball at SCSU in Minnesota. After a year, I decided to be a normal student and drop the athlete role. This is where my fitness journey took a halt.
Fast forward a few years to working a full-time desk job, long commutes, a couple chiro and doctor visits, life stuff…my body was feeling a toll already in my mid-20’s. These should be my prime years right?! So I started making changes. I eventually found a new job, eliminating the long commute (best decision ever!), and made time to check out a CrossFit gym that recently opened in my community. I joined and quickly learned this style of workout was exactly what I needed to balance out my health.
Last summer my husband and I decided to make a big change and moved from Minnesota to Idaho to live by the mountains. I knew the first thing I wanted to do was find a gym with a good community that fit my personality. I tried a couple of CrossFit gyms in town and none felt quite right so I kept searching. Farmgirlfit came up through an online search so I tried it out. After a couple of sessions, I knew it had everything I was looking for: a great community, great coaches, and fun challenging workouts! This last year the FGF community has supported me in the transition to my new life in Idaho. Thank you ladies for your positive vibes and friendships! I’m excited to continue this journey!
With no doubt, a hang clean at #200 lbs. It was a huge PR that took me by surprise.
I want to get my hips feeling 100% healthy again and start working on those lifting PR’s. Also, I want to get more experience backpacking and learn to ski.
Anything fast-paced and loud on those killer long Grinds – appropriately named!
Favorite: All lifting. Least: Toes-to-bar or ice skaters.
Just control your breathing and keep pushing a little outside the comfort zone.
The community and how they push me to be my best every day.
Work remotely from home full-time. Fixing up my new house. Hiking. Trying to be outside as much as possible. Hanging out with my husband and new Idaho/FGF friends.
Just give it a go.
The sight of my orange truck after a really long and difficult hike (and the warm food that comes with it)!
Panda bear. They have a gentle soul and pee while doing handstands (pretty talented I’d say!).
A basketball player of course.
I’m an Iowa farm girl at heart, growing up in the middle of miles of corn and soybean fields. My brother is now the third generation living and farming on the original farmstead.
Chocolate covered almonds, chocolate muffin, huckleberry pancakes…Oh, and beer J
A chocolate, frozen banana, peanut butter, protein shake.
Lots of eggs.
