Like many, Brandy used to always listen to the negative about Crossfit, until one day she tried it out with an open mind, and it has completely changed her life. She enjoys the positive energy everyone brings, and the community that has inspired her to be a better person and athlete. After falling in love with Crossfit, it was a natural step for Brandy to acquire her CF-L1 and begin training others to better themselves as well. 

Brandy has always loved sports and athletics, but after her third knee surgery she had to give up soccer. With that hole in her fitness lifestyle, she needed something new to keep her active and to stimulate her competitive nature. Crossfit filled that hole, and has allowed her to keep her body healthy and strong to do the things she loves doing outside of the gym.

She moved to Utah in 2010 and she has been a part of the Crossfit community since the fall of 2013 when she walked into her first class and fell in love. “I finally found a place where being a strong woman was celebrated and knew that I would keep coming back,” she said.
