I discovered CrossFit in August, 2009 while researching the Paleo Diet. I ran marathons, qualified for Boston and loved weight training in the gym. I thought I was in great shape until I tried my first CrossFit workout. I had no idea how this would positively impact my life and the lives of everyone around me.
After almost six years of doing CrossFit, I am still just as passionate about this ‘sport of fitness’ today as I was the day I first set foot in a box (CrossFit gym). CrossFit has given me the mental and physical capability to perform at my highest potential. I have seen first-hand the difference that CrossFit can make. It is with this passion and faith in CrossFit that I decided to open IRONWOOD CrossFit in February, 2013. Since opening our doors, I have coached people of all abilities: from professional baseball players to soccer moms, from the competitive athlete to the average person just looking for a fun and motivating way to stay in shape. I have coached people through pre-existing injuries, helping them get their bodies working as they are supposed to. One of the best parts of CrossFit is that it can be scaled for all different physical abilities. I am very proud that the IRONWOOD CrossFit community opens its doors to people of all levels. No matter where you are now, our goal is to help you be better every time you come in.
