CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CF-L1
Hi everyone and welcome to CrossFit Annandale!
My name is Christina (dog lover and FOODIE) and have been a member of CrossFit Annandale since May 2016.
Growing up, I was never into playing sports at school and as an adult, I went to the gym “just because” with no goal or purpose. I was first introduced to CrossFit in 2010 and I’ll admit that I almost passed out from an 8-min workout. Though I wasn’t very good at it, I instantly fell in love with the sport but took a long break shortly thereafter. In 2016, with the itch to start up CrossFit again, I always drove past CFA and would see members working out but felt shy, as well as intimidated, dropping into a new box. Needless to say, I finally decided to go for a workout and I signed up immediately. From the coach to the members, everyone was so warm and welcoming, making me feel comfortable, which was extremely important to me.
As a member since 2016, I initially hadn’t thought of becoming a coach. However, as my love for the sport grew, so did my passion to help others achieve their goals. Unspeakable joy overflows when I see someone get their first pull up.
I became a Level-1 Trainer in August 2019 and alongside this awesome group of coaches, I feel so blessed to be able to help athletes work toward a healthier lifestyle, getting stronger, and faster!
At CrossFit Annandale, you’ll discover that we cheer really loud for one another during the workout. Don’t worry- that’s normal. You’ll also find that we hang out together, karaoke together, lend a helping hand, give back to the community, and eat together. Don’t worry- that’s normal, too!
Whether you’re looking for a new box, visiting from out of town, or trying CrossFit for the first time, come on in. We’d love to get to know you and workout with you!
