Fitness has always been a passion of mine ever since I was a kid.
As a kid I played every sport imaginable to get an idea of what I liked and what I was good at and then when it came down to high school I choose my favorites.
I have always loved running ever since field days in elementary. I can remember putting on my favorite black running shorts, my blue track and field shirt with a running shoe on it from Nike and my favorite running shoes and I was the one kid that took field day really seriously.
I am naturally a very competitive person, Thanks to my dad. So those days it was all about the win. I wanted to make my dad proud. (My dad was a really good runner in track)
So in high school I chose to play soccer and of course RUN! I ran cross country and track. If you are a runner than you know that running becomes a bit of an obsession. I remember in high school I wanted to be the best runner possible so I trained with the guys a lot to speed up my times and run at a faster pace, and I ALWAYS got my miles in. 10 miles in the morning, 10 at night.
However there came a point in my life my junior year I went to a running camp over the summer and they asked how many of us wanted to run in college and I thought maybe I want to. And then they told us it's like a job and you don't have much free time. You see, my running turned into too much of a competition and I became too hard on myself, that I no longer could just run for fun.
Now that I am in college and my competitive running days are over, I get to run for fun and it is so much more enjoyable without the stress of "I have to win" on my mind.
Anyway.... a few years ago I competed for Miss Indiana and I began to train for the swimsuit competition with Sharpley Training. This type of training changed my entire idea of fitness. First off, with me having one arm I have to adapt to a lot when it comes to working out. And because I was a runner and my teachers in gym class told me to skip things I never had deadlifted, or jumped rope, or squatted etc. It seemed scary at first but Sharpley made it so easy and they always were encouraging me and they adapted and found out ways for me to do literally EVERYTHING! I am forever grateful for them and what they did for me.
So now I love all of those things! I love crossfit and HIT (High Intensity Training)
