Founder, Crossfit Port Washington
"I want to educate people to think of Crossfit as a lifesyle, not just a sport"
Why did you start your business?
I opened CFPW because I absolutely fell in the love with the fitness program. I have always been into fitness and tried everything under the sun to keep my body in shape. I had been a long distance marathon runner for close to a decade, but wasn’t seeing the benefits from it anymore. I was thin, but I wasn’t strong. On a friend’s suggestion I tried CrossFit and it completely changed my life. I was determined to bring this program to as many people as possible, especially women. Society has taught women that skinny and thin is the equivalent of fitness and that is wrong. Strength and endurance will put you on the road to fitness much faster than anything the scale says.
Biggest Achievement so far.....
My biggest achievement so far is following my dream no matter how hard it gets. It’s not easy to run a business, be a mom to three little boys and a wife all at the same time. I always have too many plates in the air and once in a while one falls. That’s OK! It’s a roller coaster, but I love it!
Greatest Lesson Learned....
Don’t take everything so personally and don’t sweat the small stuff. And always look at the bigger picture.
Person, Place or Thing that inspires you
My family inspires me every day. I couldn’t do this without the support of my husband and children.
Words to Foster others....
Follow your dreams and do what you LOVE! There is no feeling like it. It’s not always going to be easy, but if it’s something you believe in, it is always worth the fight.
