AJ discovered CrossFit in 2013, and can’t get enough! 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 as she continued to run in college and young adulthood. In 2016, AJ completed her L1 certification, and began coaching CrossFit. She recently completed her L2 certification in May 2021. AJ believes in the physical and mental benefits of doing difficult things and loves to see others reach potential they never thought they had. 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!
