How I was introduced to CrossFit: 

How I was introduced to CrossFit: My Bestie Kellie Lewis & Her sister Jessie Hunt encouraged me to come check out BCCF! I went to one SWEAT class and was hooked! At the time I was working out at another large local gym. I was putting in the time going to the gym, but looking back…I was just spinning my wheels! I was making an effort to exercise, but didn’t know how to push myself to see results. I also didn’t know how to use the weights and was intimidated by all the people checking themselves out in the mirrors! I love how much I have learned at BCCF! I feel confident throughout each workout & now LOVE doing weight training. Coach Amy has also helped me so much w developing healthy eating habits and learning how to meal plan & count macros. At Bear Canyon Crossfit I consistently feel encouraged to try new ways to push myself to become stronger and healthier! 

If I never had to RUN again I would be a happy gal! I despise running! Like, I’d rather drown, than run. 

If I had to makeup my own WOD: a little of this & a little of that! I love any workout that mixes it up! I would definitely include rowing, db snatch & push press. 

My favorite activity is laughing! Hobby: Swimming! I was a competitive swimmer from age 8-21. I also love camping and going to the lake. I am married to the cutest guy in town and we have 5 adorable little babes! We have 3 biological kids and (by the time you are reading this) have adopted 2 little ones! I’ve always had a heart for adoption & helping anyone I was able! 4 years ago we opened our home to little ones in our community that needed a safe place. We have been foster parents to 5 little hearts. Two little girls became part of our family 3 years ago & we are adopting them this weekend! My husband and I also own a local small business, UNLIMITED PLUMBING! We do plumbing, heating and cooling!  

My proudest accomplishment: finishing a 800 meter run in 50 meters. ???

My greatest accomplishment as a parent has been convincing my kids that Chuck E. Cheese is only open once a year.

My favorite indulgence is: The Roots Cafe Chocolate Chip Cookies. Seriously, go try them! It’s a cute little cafe in Tijeras.

What are your favorite songs to workout to?: Walls, Emery. Robbery, Juice WRLD. Lalala, Y2K bbno$. UnderoathChiodosYellowcard

What I love about Bear Canyon Crossfit: The people!!! My heart always feels full when I leave! The Community and the Coaches are amazing! I always feel encouraged and stronger every time I go! I’m also always guaranteed a great workout!
