Keidy first tried CrossFit in Houston, TX in May of 2010. She was immediately humbled by the challenges that CrossFit presented; the first being how to get out of bed the next morning! She became stubbornly dedicated to overcoming her weaknesses and replacing them with new goals. While her immediate attraction to CrossFit was the competitive nature of the sport, she began to notice the physical and psychological transformation not only in herself, but those that surrounded her, and it sparked her interest in becoming a coach.
"CrossFit has provided me with the tools to help others better their lives. After a couple of years on the floor, at the age of 24, I moved back to my hometown/island to open CrossFit Martha's Vineyard. It was there that I grew the most as an athlete and as a coach. I had the opportunity to expand the CrossFit community and that has been the best learning experience of my life."
Philosophy on Training and on Life: "Be positive, stay humble, strive to improve everyday, listen to your body, and enjoy a cheat meal!"
Short and Long Term Goals: "My goal this year is to qualify for Regionals as an individual. After this season I would like to try something new such as competitive Olympic Weightlifting."
Keidy has already achieved her goal for 2014 by qualifying for the North East Individual Regionals competition.
