I was working in a corporate job setting for the past 20 years. I used to loved my job but the past few years had been increasingly more demanding than ever, very unfulfilling, and well, just awful. I was working from home (due to Covid19) 10-12 hour days in a job I wasn't happy in. Working from home was great but the job was the same. I just had enough. I needed to do something different, something that lights my fire and also affords me the opportunity to give back a little. I gave my notice in June with absolutely no plan, no idea what I was going to do. I just knew that I had to something else, something meaningful. We spend 1/3 of our lives working so why not do something that makes us happy with the rest of it.
I had found Crossfit about 8 years ago and have had a passion for fitness and nutrition ever since. Crossfit changed my life in so many ways (for the better obviously) and I wanted to return the favor and help others do the same. Over the last few years, I obtained my CFL1 and also recently became a certified nutrition coach (PN1).
I was meal prepping for the week one Sunday and thought "this is it"! If I can prep delicious foods to fuel my body for myself every week, why not do it for others. It just made sense, this is the path I have been on. This is where it starts!
