Banded Together Scholarship Program Coordinator
I gained interest in CrossFit in 2018 and that interest quickly developed into a passion. Prior to 2018, I felt inspired to pursue a fitness journey because I wanted to have a healthier lifestyle. When I first began my journey, I was anything but the picture of health, I was obese with numerous medical issues due to my weight. I struggled to become healthier and had many ups and downs – but I never gave up. When I found CrossFit, I found my fitness home! I don’t have an athletic background or experience, so this was a new adventure for me, especially in my 40s. CrossFit remains a challenge for me, but I love it!! CrossFit Unwritten has built a community like no other I have experienced. The coaches encourage and show commitment to their athletes, and they want everyone to succeed at their fitness goals. I’m not a fitness expert (I’m barely a novice..haha!), but I do know what it’s like to be unable to access a fitness facility or to be the only one who looks like me at a gym. Unwritten believes that the CrossFit community should be accessible to anyone who has the desire to succeed in their fitness journey. However, let’s be real, diversity and inclusion are minimal in the CrossFit community. Unwritten recognizes that gap and I want to help change it. Unwritten and its members, welcome all individuals, no matter their background, shade, age, financial status, etc. CrossFit is a wellness space that includes unification and community wholeness.
