What is Your Why? : Coach Connie
I love to work out, so much so, I’m fine with working out by myself. But that can get old sometimes. I love how working out makes my body feel but mostly how it makes my mind feel! I feel stronger physically and mentally. My background was in personal training. After years of working out in a “regular” gym, I decided I wanted to try CrossFit because I was becoming bored with my workout regime. My first class of CrossFit was so great that I never looked back. Then I went and got my CrossFit Level 1 because I wanted to learn more about it!
With my personal training background, I jumped into coaching at Max Kane. I like helping people and pushing them a little further then they think they can go. But they push me as a coach too. I am there for them, to make sure they are using their bodies correctly, safely, and effectively. They have made me a better trainer.
Just like working out, I coach because of how it makes me feel and having a good influence on my athletes. It makes me happy when they do something they thought they couldn’t do or lift a weight they assumed would be too heavy. I always want them to be the best athlete possible and to succeed at anything they put their mind to everyday. That is why I coach CrossFit.
