Little Ninjas and Teen Varsity Coach
Originally from Columbus Ohio, I am the proud wife of Fallon (another AKP coach). I grew up as a competitive softball player and played from my youth through college at the D1 level at the University of Dayton, then eventually found rugby after college which I played for 8 additional years. I have also spent several years giving private softball instruction and coaching competitive softball at every age level.
I first found CrossFit in 2012 and was immediately hooked! I love that the workouts are always different, targeting all muscle groups, and ensuring that you get an opportunity to work on your strengths AND weaknesses. I also love how Crossfit caters to those of all ages and, no matter your skill level or fitness background, there’s a place for you. I think that’s what drew me to help build and coach our youth programs. I enjoy teaching our kids the basic foundations of Crossfit, providing them with valuable health, wellness and nutrition information and seeing them develop a “fitness for life” mentality. They learn that exercise can be beneficial and fun…especially with teammates and friends! Finally, I love the diverse group of clientele that AKP has. AKP is in a unique geographic location where we have members from our surrounding neighborhoods, military from the Air Force base and college students from the local universities. It is the most amazing opportunity I’ve ever experienced to meet people from all over the world and to meet people who have travelled and lived all over the world. Each member brings their own experiences and outlook to our classes, community outreach and creates a close-knit environment where we can lean on each other like family. It is amazing and something I’ve seldom experienced in other fitness settings. AKP is a very accepting, safe place to workout no matter if you are a beginner or competitive athlete and I’m very happy to be part of our AKP coaching staff.
When not in the gym, I like to travel, spend time with family and spoil my fur babies Arya, Oskar and Leia!
