AJ discovered CrossFit in 2013, and has been training ever since. She loves it just as much from 8 years ago as she does today! It was a natural transition after many years of competitive sports, in High School and she continued to run afterwards. In 2016, AJ completed her L1 certification, and has been coaching Crossfit ever since. She recently completed her L2 certification in May 2021. AJ believes in the physical and mental benefits of doing difficult things. That’s why she believes the most rewarding aspect of coaching is seeing athletes accomplish, and surpass their own goals. Besides Crossfit, AJ is an Orthopedic Spine Nurse Practitioner with orthopedic trauma experience as well! AJ also coaches a level 4 USAG gymnastics team out of Byrd’s Dance and Gymnastics! AJ loves a good challenge and to compete in a competition or two!
