I have been competing at anything and everything since I first learned how to walk. I love that CrossFit is a performance-based sport because it shows that the harder you work, the more successful you will become. If you want to beat someone, you must first outwork them. I try to bring that same drive and work ethic to the gym with me every day, and will always push you to become the best version of yourself.
My turning point was when I first had to give up competing in sports. After spending my entire life playing competitive sports, I eventually had to give that up. That's when I was lucky enough to stumble upon CrossFit. CrossFit gave me that competitive itch back and also helped me stay in shape.
