How did you first get into fitness? How has that changed over the years?

I first got into fitness after being a competitive gymnast for six years. My dad started CrossFit first and introduced me to it. I fell in love right away!

Name one quality you learned thanks to your sport that you are so grateful to have learned.

Discipline. I would say I was disciplined in gymnastics, but in CrossFit I have to be a lot more self-disciplined and can’t always rely on my coaches to be there 110% of the time, telling me what to do, like in gymnastics.

What’s your least favorite part about CrossFit?

My least favorite part about CrossFit is probably the cardio aspect. From gymnastics, I was a short twitch athlete, and it’s taken a lot of time to start developing my aerobic system. 

Go-to music when crushing a workout?

Big bootie mixes are probably my go-to.

What does your workout schedule look like?

My workout schedule is three days of training, then one active recovery day, two days of training, and a rest day. 

What does your recovery routine look like?

My recovery routine is a lot of stretching, enjoying great food, and of course drinking O2.

Favorite flavor of O2 and when do you enjoy it most?

My favorite flavor of O2 is Blackberry Currant. I don’t know why it’s my favorite, but it’s so delicious!!
