Plain and simple, CrossFit changed my life. I was 28 years old, married with two children and about 50 pounds overweight when I was introduced to CrossFit. I will never forget the day I completed my first W.O.D (workout of the day) living in Las Vegas at SinCity CrossFit. The experience tested my mental and physical capacity to a degree in which I never thought a single workout could. My first workout was a half Cindy (come to the gym and see what cindy is about) and all I remember was in the last minute of the workout I couldn’t find the strength to complete a single pullup. Standing in front of a bar that looked 100 feet tall I looked to my right only to see four other, completely random people, standing over me. They were cheering me on, promising me that I had enough in the tank to finish this thing. One member even ran over to me and added ANOTHER band to assist with my pullups, and when I finished those pullups I was greeted with pats on the back and high fives to celebrate the accomplishment. At that very moment I realized that this was something special, something I would never stop doing. Upon relocating to NJ I quickly found the nearest “box” to continue my new found journey towards being fit. CrossFit 908 was where I landed and Tim Carroll was the fearless leader of this community. Over the course of two years with the 908 crew my initial love for crossfit transformed into a passion. That passion triggered a desire to study….to research the best possible formula to achieve peak performance in mental and physical fortitude. Years of studying and learning from the best landed me at the doors of Marlboro CrossFit. It is here that I can lay it all on the line every day for each and every one of my clients, with one goal in mind… to bring out the very best version of themselves, just as I did when I first started crossfit.
See you at the box.

I thought I was in pretty good shape since I was a high school/college athlete and always incorporated fitness into my lifestyle even after having three kids. For years, I exercised at least five times a week at a ‘globo’ gym doing cardio and lifting light weights. But when I did my first Crossfit workout (WOD) back in October 2011, it quickly revealed A LOT of weaknesses. My first few months of Crossfit were even more humbling for me. I felt angry at how hard EVERYTHING was. As much as I may have looked “fit” on the outside, I clearly was out of shape on the inside. Since that first day I participated in a Crossfit WOD, I knew it was something special and I had become addicted. The ‘globo’ gym training I had previously been doing did not compare to the quick gains I received from Crossfit. Crossfit has put me not only in the best shape of my life physically, but has also made me mentally tougher.
Within this community, we make the impossible possible – one WOD at a time. Crossfit has become a part of who I am and as a L-1 Crossfit Certified Trainer my goal is to make it a part of you as well.
