The tenants of mechanics, consistency and intensity have always resonated with me, even before I began training in the CrossFit method. During 10 years of immersion in Olympic-style Taekwondo through the international level, I achieved both junior and collegiate national champion titles. Practice was the key to success—endless repetition of movement patterns—as well as learning the meaning of pushing my limits, of working harder than my opponents, the very concept of intensity. During this period of my life, my roles directing training sessions and coaching young athletes at several facilities were also important to me. Then, after a career-ending knee injury, I became a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym, where I worked for five years, and also served as the Fitness Manager.

When I met our co-founder, John Main, in the fall of 2005, he introduced me to CrossFit, and I dove in head-first, never looking back. For me, CrossFit represents the most holistic and organic training program that I have ever experienced. With CrossFit, I am fitter, healthier and happier than I have ever been, and I hope to translate this experience to our athletes in every session. I enjoy the energy of the group environment and love to coach—I love to see our athletes do things that they did not think possible. In addition, with my education in applied anatomy and injury management, I strive to make sure that our athletes train in a safe environment, and work to prevent injuries before they occur.

We founded MPH to give our athletes the opportunity to facilitate their physical and emotional development. We are proud of the community that MPH has already developed, and look forward to continuing to grow and expand it in the future.
