CrossFit Level 1
I grew up in northern Wisconsin in a family that always valued an active lifestyle. In high school, I played hockey and football but my true passion was competitive waterskiing. My first time skiing was at age two (2) and it has been a large part of my life ever since. Our summers were spent traveling around the country competing in numerous state, regional, and national tournaments. While in college, I was fortunate to compete on the UW-La Crosse (UWL) Waterski Team and spent my summers coaching at waterski schools down south. One of my teammates recommended that I go to CrossFit as a way to train for waterskiing during the offseason. After one CrossFit class, I was hooked! I loved the excitement and sense of community that the CrossFit gym brought to my daily workout. After graduating in Public Health at UWL, I moved to Center City, MN to attend Hazelden’s graduate program in addiction and mental health Counseling. I knew I wanted to continue CrossFit and discovered Thousand Lakes Fitness! My fitness journey at TLF has been an amazing experience and I feel fortunate to have found a place as welcoming, encouraging, and supportive as TLF! I am excited to join the coaching team and look forward to working with others on their fitness goals!
