I am a certified Level 1, Level 2, and CrossFit kids trainer, a student working on my Masters in Nutrition Education, and a mom of four very athletic grade school kids. I was always a competitive student athlete; but resigned myself to the globo-gym machine-based work-outs as an adult. I desperately missed the competition and camaraderie of my student days but could not find an outlet for it (competitive parenting is frowned upon). I even took up running for a while simply so I could have some benchmark of an effort “for time.” But in truth nothing satisfied my athletic and competitive heart until I found CrossFit. My first “mini-Cindy” was a blue band, knee push up, humbling experience for someone who considered herself fit, but I couldn’t wait to come back. I love coaching adults, especially beginners.
