What year did you start CrossFitting?


Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I got into CrossFit at a time in my life when I needed something to help get me out of my own way. My husband Matthew Lefave had been doing it for years and motivated me to give it a try. I did and I was hooked. It helped change the direction of my life and I am grateful for it.

I was a competitive Figure Skater many years ago and found the same love and passion for CrossFit as I had with skating. I love that with CrossFit you are always trying new things, and because of that it pushes you out of your comfort zone and creates a new kind confidence. I love pushing the boundaries of my fitness to see what I am capable of.

Why did you become a trainer?

I became a trainer because I love motivating people. I want to help people feel confident about themselves and to love themselves. I thrive off of other peoples happiness and joy and just so badly want to impact as many peoples lives in a positive way as I can. I truly believe that everyone and anyone is capable of everything and I would like to influence peoples lives to believe that through CrossFit.
