My fitness journey started out when I was young. I was always active and played a lot of sports in high school. When I got to college, school took over, and I lost touch with my fitness. This was until my now wife introduced me to CrossFit. My first workout was Fran, and my wife beat me handily. Losing the workout wasn't fun, but the feeling I had from doing Fran was amazing. As soon as I returned home I immediately started at a local box. Working out in the community helped fuel my fire to coach other athletes. I received my Level 1 in October of 2014 and have found that I love celebrating my athletes PR's as much as my own. I look forward to working with all of Artisan's athletes to help them meet their fitness goals.
I began CrossFit while in physical therapy school, in the summer of 2013 after cheering on my dad in a competition. I knew after one day of sitting on the sidelines, I couldn’t go back to school without finding a box to plug in with. I have never been a fitness guru, but I have always loved challenging myself and am slightly competitive, so sets/reps in the gym wasn't intriguing enough to keep me going back. The way you can challenge yourself and the community you are surrounded by in CrossFit is unlike any other and a major reason my love for the sport continues to grow. CrossFit has taught me more about myself and has shown me just how strong I can be—in the gym and in life. I also enjoy incorporating my scholastic background and interest in biomechanics and human movement into my workouts and helping others to be better, more proficient athletes.
I am so excited to join the team at Artisan CrossFit as a CF-L1 trainer. I have always been a gym rat, started lifting with a friend, then tried boot camps and running half and full marathons. Then in May of 2015, my son talked me into trying CrossFit. I instantly fell in love with it. I am married to my high school sweetheart Steve, and a mother of two boys. My most exciting times are watching others meet their goals. I look forward to seeing many more goals reached.
I began CrossFit in early 2016 after watching my girlfriend compete in a local competition. It took only one workout and I was hooked. CrossFit tests and pushes athletes to places they once thought were not possible. The community is something that is truly incredible. I enjoy coaching as well as spreading my love for the sport. I look forward to helping members reach their goals as a CF-L1 trainer!
Hi, my name is Courtney and I am a Crossfit Addict. Just kidding, but it has grown to be one of the biggest parts of my life! My Fitness Journey truly began after graduating college (TR—OJ—AAAAANS!). Growing up and all through high School I played Softball and Soccer, but after college is when I really decided I needed more “Fitness” and less Fitn’ess in my mouth. It took me a few years and several different fitness programs (T-25, Walk Away the pounds, Zumba, etc) to find the right fit. You guessed it! Crossfit. I feel like “Fit” is such an appropriate word. Crossfit can be programmed to “Fit” anyone! Whether you’re a beginner, injured, pregnant, or athletically gifted - Crossfit is for you! Even better than the scalability of each workout, is the comradery the community provides. There’s no better feeling than pushing through a tough workout while the people around you are pushing at the same time. Now that I’ve grown through Crossfit for about three years, my passion for Crossfit continues to grow. This is why I chose to become a CF-L1 trainer. I look forward to sharing, growing, and learning with you at no better place than Artisan Crossfit!
