Abby was introduced to CrossFit in 2014 when she desired a more challenging workout as a stay-at-home-mom. As a lifelong health and fitness enthusiast, training in gymnastics, swimming, and track & field in her youth, she enjoys using those learned skills in her daily activities as an adult. However, it was CrossFit that helped her regain a love for her first sport of gymnastics and encouraged her to pursue coaching young gymnasts that shared the same passion. A move from Indiana to Georgia provided the opportunity to switch gears from coaching traditional gymnastics to coaching CrossFit, which was quickly growing to be more of a passion than a hobby. Soon after, Abby became a CF-L1 Trainer.
Abby loves the community that comes along with CrossFit. For her, the best thing it is watching people do things they never thought they could do, seeing someone hit a PR or Rx a wod for the first time, and the sense of accomplishment that comes with that. Since her very first workout, CrossFit has provided her with the training, equipment, and knowledge necessary to become a well-rounded, fit athlete. The motivational environment, competitive spirit, and constantly varied workouts have helped to prevent boredom and burnout, as well.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 kids, experiencing new and challenging activities, tumbling in a local gymnastics facility and of course, CrossFit.
