Emily began CrossFit as a senior in high school when she was looking for something to do to stay fit in the offseason of softball and basketball. Falling in love with the constantly varying, ever changing landscape that is CrossFit, Emily kept up with it through college and beyond. Emily joined CrossFit 2st in the winter of 2016 as an athlete, and a couple of years later, committed to becoming the second “gym-tern” CrossFit 2st had ever had (with Coach Dick passing the “gym-tern” torch). Going on her ninth year of CrossFit, Emily earned her L1 in February of 2019 and became a coach in that same year with Coach Matt #classof19. Emily loves the supportive family-like community that CrossFit 2st has because of its phenomenal members and is excited to keep learning and growing through the sport.
