Back to Coaches

I have been doing CrossFit for about five years with Apex. Since starting, I have never even once considered taking on another form of exercise. CrossFit has become my passion and I am fortunate enough to be able to share that passion with others at Apex when I train. I currently amone of the trainers for our junior teen class and run the CrossFit Kids class that includes our 2nd through 4th graders. There is nothing that makes me happier than knowing I am changing the lives of young people by teaching them how to be healthy through exercise and nutrition.

Along with being a trainer at Apex, I am also a Health and Physical Education teacher at the Quakertown Freshman Center in the Quakertown Community School District. I am fortunate enough to teach in a district that supports our health and PE programs and sees the value in teaching young people how to be fit and increase their quality of life through exercise. My curriculum is fitness-based so I can continue to take my knowledge and experience of Crossfit and teach it to my freshman students.

I am very proud to be a member of the CrossFit Apex training team. I have never met a more dedicated, motivating, passionate, and driven group of people in all of my life. The positive energy that this group of trainers passes on to their clients is contagious and addicting….you can’t help but want to walk through their doors over and over again once you have had the experience of the Apex community.
