Bailey started CrossFit through a site called Groupon where she received a great deal a college kid could afford. She wanted to get better at obstacle races so she researched ways to make herself fitter besides constantly running up and down hills and classic circuit training at her school’s gym. She stepped into her first CrossFit class wearing flip flops and had to do "baseline" after that it was like everyone elses reason for coming back, she was challenged and she wanted more. She spent a few months at the gym she initially started with doing some work for them in exchange for membership. She traveled around to different gyms in the Philadelphia Area to get a feel for the community and found a gym she wanted to use as her primary place to train. The folks at the gym were super nice and let her train with them and through their connections she was introduced to her eventual gym home, CrossFit Milford. When she got a job that relocated her to the Connecticutt Area she immediately moved to Milford despite her job being some distance away (Stamford, CT). Training at CFM with the people she now calls family has made her truly understand what community is, "I have never met a bunch that has been so kind and supportive towards me while also pushing me to my every limit!"
"CrossFit has completely changed my life - for the better obviously! I don’t have the privilege to coach at the moment like many athletes, but I am constantly around like minded individuals who keep me learning and growing. I definitely didn’t have the mental fortitude that I do now which has helped me with other successes in my life and thats all thanks to CrossFit."
Her journey with CFM took her to two CrossFit Games appearances (2015 and 2016) culminating in a second place finish and a sixteenth place finish respectively. She will be forever grateful for the comradery and community that CFM showed her existed and cherishes the time she spent in Milford.
Currently, Bailey can be found in her hometown area, where she was able to purchase the local gym Stroud CrossFit. She spends most of her time coaching, training, and improving her community’s fitness. Recently, she qualified for the 2017 CrossFit Mid-Atlantic Regionals for the first time as an individual athlete. She is looking forward to seeing where her fitness journey will take her in the coming years.
Long and short term goals - "Become a bigger part of/or start my own community of Crossfitters. I really want to help people and change their lives through fitness, health, or just helpful advice. Make big impacts on others in this life and hopefully make people happy. Happy people make other people happy and so on and so forth. As for short terms, I’d love to first qualify as an individual and then make it onto the Games. Here's hoping!"
