Amy started CrossFit in early 2013. Having never considered herself much of an athlete in the past, she was amazed to find herself hooked on a sport that made her feel like a kid again! Except now, she recognized the value in only competing with herself and always striving to be better than she used to be. She was lucky to find a community with the same values when she joined T2 in 2017.
Recognizing the athlete within through CrossFit has been life changing for Amy. It’s built confidence, taught her how to persevere through life and what it truly means to be resilient. The lessons CrossFit has taught her inspired her to get her L1 but more importantly, her CrossFit Kids certification. Amy feels that teaching kids the fundamentals of the CrossFit methodology is more than just about giving them a good workout- it’s about teaching them to be good people, inside and outside of the box. Working with the kiddos of the T2 community is truly an opportunity that Amy doesn’t take for granted!
Amy and her husband, Mike live in Mt. Lebanon with their two CrossFit bred kids, Jackson and Wyatt. She’s a full time school counselor in the Upper St. Clair school district. When she manages to find some free time, you can find her outside, drinking coffee, reading the Morning Chalk Up.
