Words cannot describe Anne’s performance during the Baseline Challenge. I recall a guest visiting that day watching Anne perform the workout and saying “that is amazing”. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Watching from the side I couldn’t help but smile as she pushed herself. We modified as needed and treated her like any other athlete that day. She didn’t want sympathy or coddling. She just wanted to perform. It’s that same determination and no-excuse attitude that has catapulted her into the success she and her family have been blessed with and continue to strive for. You inspire us one-rep at-a-time!

One word people use to describe me: hmm…earthy? Probably just a nice way of saying I should brush my hair.
Outside of the gym I like to: Wait, there’s life outside of Crossfit?! We like to standup paddle with the kids!
Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me: I sucked my thumb in my sleep until I was 10. And I never had braces. So there 😉
