What is Your Why? : Coach Nora
I love everything about CrossFit. I love feeling of giving others knowledge and seeing them use it successfully. I love the feeling I get when I see an athlete succeed at something they didn’t think they could do. Last year at our CF Open Friday night lights, there were a couple of moments, I literally got choked up about an athlete’s performance. I am so lucky to have found a passion I had no clue I would need in my life.
CrossFit is so much more than fitness to me. It is a community. My athletes mean a lot to me and I want them to do well whether that is getting a PR, changing the way they view food, or the weight on their scale. I don’t get to coach as much as I’d like because of my crazy schedule but when I get to, I like to make sure my athletes to enjoy their class, learn something new, and make small yet constant improvements. I don’t want them to get caught up in the number on the scoreboard. I want them to want to get better and be a well rounded athlete. Even if that means not having the best score of the day everyday.
Coaching is so rewarding. I never thought I could be someone who could have influence on others in such a positive way.
