CrossFit became a major part of my life in 2012. Being an active person who played Lacrosse competitively in high school, I was looking for something to stretch my physical limits and offer me a taste of competition I had missed since my high school days. I had heard whispers of a CrossFit affiliate opening near St. John’s; with nothing to lose I decided to try it. I had no idea how this decision would positively impact my life and the lives of many people around me.
My first session was a humbling one as I was forced to realize that I was at the bottom of a very steep fitness hill. Despite this, I was hooked and started my climb. Four years later I started my family medicine residency in Corner Brook. Knowing there was no replacing CrossFit in my life I sought out like minded people in an effort to bring the sport of fitness to the city and those within it. In October 2015, I travelled to Ottawa and attained my Level 1 trainers certificate.
One of my passions is to share my enthusiasm for a healthy and fulfilling life with as many people as possible and I am excited to do so through CrossFit Heavy Timber!
