1. What brought you to Armor?
I met Heather working at Cinderella’s Royal Table and she told me about Armor CrossFit being so close to my house and that Mia was a coach there. I started at one of the Saturday workouts and at first thought it was too much to for me to handle but it actually turned into my addiction.
2. How has Armor help you become a stronger person physically and mentally?
Working with coaches has helped me become not only physically stronger but they have helped me think differently about my lifts. I translate that in how I mentally process everything everyday. I tell people everyday that Armor has made me stronger than I have ever been or thought I would have been.
3. What is your favorite part about working out at the box?
My favorite part about working out at the box is the motivation that other athletes give to fellow athletes. We are always pushing each other to be better and to give 100%. I love how encouraging everyone is and the family environment that is present.
4. If you could tell one person that has never been to the box one reason they should come what would that be? CrossFit can be intimidating but Armor eases the anxiety you may have and you will be blown away at how awesome the people and workouts are to help you get to your fitness goals.
5. About You
I came to work at Disney on a College Program in 2012. I went back to school to get my Bachelor’s in Foodservice Management. I graduated in 2014 and return to Florida to continue my career with Disney. After working a year at the Grand Floridian Resort as a cook, I got promoted to a Restaurant Guest Experience Manager at Cinderella’s Royal Table. My passion lies in training and development and guest service. I have a mind for strategic and logistical management. I started my fitness and health journey in 2013 where I started a boot camp program at Fit Bye Pharr.
Shortly after I started running a lot. I had lost 89 lbs. When I moved to Florida full time, I started running a 5K a day. I started lifting weights at Planet Fitness in Ocoee passing Armor on the daily. I then met Heather and Mia where they strongly recommended I try it. Since September 2, 2016, my life has not been the same in respects to my fitness. I love everyday that I step into Armor. I look forward to progressing to be a better athlete and being the best I can be. I enjoy volunteer projects and supporting our youth for better futures. I also enjoy being around friends and family and I am truly thankful to the man upstairs for everything I have in life and the experiences he has given me to make me a strong man especially Armor CrossFit.
