Head Trainer and Co-Owner of CrossFit Impressions
I am a 5x south regional CrossFit athlete. I have been competing in a broad range of sports since I was a child. CrossFit has helped me in many ways physically but especially with my mental game. It gave me a purpose. I absolutely love to coach and I love the competitive atmosphere and the challenges that CrossFit offers.
"I am obsessed with these muffins! They are perfect. The size, the ingredients, the taste, the simplicity and consistency are just perfect. Cinnamon Rising is my favorite with the Double Chocolate in a close second. For breakfast or snack they are quick and easy!"
Co-Owner of CrossFit Impressions
I have been involved in competitive sports since I was young. My main sport was baseball, which I played throughout high school. When I got to college I could never find that competitive feeling that I had with baseball until I found CrossFit. CrossFit gave me the same adrenaline rush and feeling that I had when playing baseball back in high school. Shortly after discovering CrossFit, I developed the first CrossFit program at Tarleton State University called TeXanFit while working towards my masters in Biology. While training athletes at Tarleton I began competing in local CrossFit competitions. My first competition was a partner competition in Houston, TX and we ended up competing with Rich Froning, Matt Chan, Chris Spealler, Josh Bridges, Dave Lipson, and other games athletes. I quickly realized that CrossFit was my true calling because I wanted to be just like these amazing athletes. Shortly after I graduated college my wife and I decided to follow our dreams and became co-owners of CrossFit Impressions. Since opening up our box it has been one heck of a ride! My goal is to one day compete at the CrossFit games alongside my wife.
"These muffins are amazing! Perfect on the go paleo snack for anyone and everyone. My favorite is the Nutty Maple, I cannot get enough of that one. I have one in the mornings at work with my coffee and I have to say that is probably the best part of my day!"
Mobility Coach at CrossFit Heath
As a former collegiate athlete I have always enjoyed eating healthy and staying physically fit. I pole vaulted at Kansas and since college I have transitioned to competitive cross fit. I now train and coach mobility classes at CrossFit Heath in Rockwall TX, utilizing my physical therapy experience. I will be competing with Team Dirty South at Wodapalooza in Miami and the Fittest Games in Austin. As we prepare for the CrossFit Open at CrossFit Heath, nutrition will be an important part of maintaining a balanced regime in order to achieve our ultimate goal of making the 2016 south central CrossFit Regionals.
"Between my intense training and work schedule I'm look for something to snack on that it quick and easy, paleo-friendly, but something that tastes good, especially my sweet tooth. With Muffin Else, I get a variety of flavors with cinnamon rising being my favorite."
Personal Trainer & Coach at CrossFit Heath
I am a mom of 3 kids and I have been coaching, teaching, breathing, training CrossFit for the last 3 1/2 years. I love it. It has taught me how to love myself and stop looking at the scale. I have competed in several competition in the last few years. To name a few I have won first place in 2 World War Fit competitions and at Battle on the Rock. I have competed in a team at the Fittest Games and All Cities Open. We have made it to the finals each time. In January 2016 I competed in my first Wodapalooza in Miami. It was so much fun. My biggest accomplishment was last year in the CrossFit Open on workout 15.5 - I got 2nd in the South Central Region and 42nd world wide. My goal is to make to Regionals as a team in the South Central Region.
"I have really enjoyed the MuffinElse products. They are flavored well and are full of healthy simple ingredients. I appreciate that the product and the owners show how much they care about the consumers body. My favorite flavor is Pecan Clover! They are great to take on trips or throw in your bag for a quick snack. I love eating them in the winter when it is cold outside. It is great that there are 8 or less ingredients in each packet and it is paleo!"
