Sarah started Crossfit 4 years ago in 2010. She came to NSCF with a background in competitive dance, but couldn't do 1 pushup and 200M wore her out. She wanted to find something that was fun and challenging, and was sick of running on a treadmill trying to be skinny. "Crossfit showed me the beauty in strength and I never looked back."
What drives her in Crossfit: "Setting goals for myself and doing the work to achieve them. Nothing feels better then hitting a PR on a benchmark WOD or a lift. You have to embrace the suck, but it's the best feeling in the world when it pays off. I love that feeling. I also love when I'm doing a work out next to someone who is giving it their all. It's like a chain reaction; you instantly want to push harder because they are."
Theory on Training: "I try to be driven by me. Itâ's just me against myself. You will only do things you tell yourself you can and you are the only one that can get in your way."
**When asked her weight for this bio, Sarah let us know she actually has no idea. She never steps on the scale, and what she said next is inspiring: "Its time we stop focusing on the weight on the scale, and start focusing on the weight on the bar."
