When did you start WOTOWN?

Oct 2021

What sports or fitness things did you do before WOTOWN?

I’ve always loved all things outdoor and anything with water. Kayaking, scuba diving, and hiking are probably what I’ve done the most of.

How did you find WOTOWN? What was your first workout?

I drove past Wotown a few days a week while on my way to another gym and figured I’d give it a try. I have absolutely no idea what my first workout was. I must have suppressed that memory so I would keep coming back!

What’s your “why” for working out? 

Initially I wanted to lose a couple of pounds and get stronger for the physical aspect of my job. My “why” has changed several times, but now I would say it’s for the benefits to my own mental, emotional, and physical health, which in turn makes me better for my family.

What’s your favorite thing about WOTOWN?

Short answer: The people. Long answer: I’ve gotten through some of my hardest days because of the people who have been woven into my life through Wotown.

What are your hobbies?

Binging murder shows on Netflix. Does that count as a hobby?

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

This question is hard for someone who talks as much as I do! I guess the extent of my training in SCUBA diving. Although my degree is in Criminology, I specialized in Underwater Crime Scene Investigation in college. So about 25% of my time at FSU was spent either diving or helping develop procedures for the UCSI program.

What PRs or accomplishments (fitness-related) are you most proud of?

Handstand pushups! It was a long process for me to get them, and I worked on them consistently. To be able to do them in an actual workout is super cool to me!

What’s on your fitness bucket list?

Double unders!

What’s on your general bucket list?

Roadtrip across the US to visit all of the National Parks.

What advice do you have for people new to WOTOWN?

Keep showing up. Consistency is the key to progress. It really is that simple.
