I’m Emma! I have been an athlete my whole life, mostly running track and field athlete in high school and college. After a decade of wear and tear on my knees, I knew I needed a change. I had heard of CrossFit through a friend and for awhile I thought, “it’s a cult, I don’t want to lift weights, and I definitely do not want to have big arms.” But, I reluctantly dropped into a class, returned the next day for more, and haven’t stopped almost 5 years later.
CrossFit and the community has made me a stronger person mentally and physically, it has given me some of my best friends, and it is where I met my husband. It continuously pushes me out of my comfort zone, allows me to workout and interact with athletes of all levels and abilities, and encourages me to be an overall better person.
I am excited to have found the Haymount community and be part of their awesome team!
