10372574_10152179887324296_8283546635028733648_nPlain and simple, CrossFit changed my life.  I was 28 years old with two children and about 50 pounds overweight when I was introduced to CrossFit.  I will never forget the day I completed my first W.O.D (workout of the day) living in Las Vegas at SinCity CrossFit.  The experience tested my mental and physical capacity to a degree in which I never thought a single workout could.  My first workout was a half Cindy (come to the gym and see what cindy is about) and all I remember was in the last minute of the workout I couldn’t find the strength to complete a single pullup.  Standing in front of a bar that looked 100 feet tall I looked to my right only to see four other, completely random people, standing over me.  They were cheering me on, promising me that I had enough in the tank to finish this thing.  One member even ran over to me and added ANOTHER band to assist with my pullups, and when I finished those pullups I was greeted with pats on the back and high fives to celebrate the accomplishment.  At that very moment I realized that this was something special, something I would never stop doing.  Upon relocating to NJ I quickly found the nearest “box” to continue my new found journey towards being fit.  CrossFit 908 was where I landed and Tim Carroll was the fearless leader of this community.  Over the course of two years with the 908 crew my initial love for crossfit transformed into a passion.  That passion triggered a desire to study….to research the best possible formula to achieve peak performance in mental and physical fortitude.  Years of studying and learning from the best landed me at the doors of Marlboro CrossFit.  It is here that I can lay it all on the line every day for each and every one of my clients, with one goal in mind… to bring out the very best version of themselves, just as I did when I first started crossfit.

See you at the box.

CrossFit Level 1 , Gymnastics


Coming from someone who never played any team nor colligate sports while growing up, I always considered myself to be in above average physical shape. I exercised on a regular basis, but only recreationally. I never considered the potential that true fitness had to offer because I was content at my current level, but that was when Crossfit came into my life. I discovered Marlboro Crossfit through my brother-in-law who was already a member. I walked into the box in the spring of 2012 and I have never looked back. Over the two years that I have been at MCF, I have discovered a new side of myself, a side that is ever striving for the next level of fitness and constantly feeds off competition and the energy of my peers. Never have I found a place where such an inclusive fitness plan has been administered so perfectly. Marlboro Crossfit cares not only about members’ performance inside of the gym, but how it carries over to the lives of the members outside of the gym. In the end, that is what Crossfit is all about, making life better not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. It is through this principle that I was hooked on Crossfit. I am genuinely excited that Crossfit has led me down this path, and I cannot wait to help everyone who walks through the doors of MCF find their own path.
