What I offer:
Different levels of bodyweight movement ranging from general bodyweight/gymnastics strength and skill training (i.e. strict pull ups, strict toes to bar, L-sits, free-standing handstands, etc.) to more specific, gymnastics-based, CrossFit movements (i.e. butterfly pull ups/chest to bar, bar and ring muscle ups, handstand walks, pistol squats.)
How will YOU benefit?
My clients will improve their proprioception, flexibility, balance, and strength using bodyweight movements. It is my philosophy that one should be a master of his or her own body first and foremost. That is what my programming is designed to help you become.
The focus will be on balance, flexibility, and strength in relation to your bodyweight throughout these gymnastics cycles.

A bit more about me:
I fell in love with gymnastics at the age of two when I went to my first gymnastics class and never turned back. In January of 2015, I joined CrossFit and immediately realized how wonderfully gymnastics had prepared me for this new sport. Many people I meet tell me that they wish they had done gymnastics growing up because the basic principals, physical and mental, learned in that sport truly translate to many other activities. Gymnastics taught me to be a master of my body and of my mind and my ultimate goal is to help others gain proprioception (essentially body awareness), flexibility, and mental toughness. The flexibility, strength, and mentality gained during this programming will also translate very well to daily life. I love to motivate people, I love when people achieve something they never thought they could, and I love to help people reach their goals. I am willing to do everything I can to help others become successful!
