Hey everyone! I'm Betsy and I'm addicted to CrossFit. :)
- I'm originally from Dayton, Ohio (USA), but I've lived all over the US (Ohio, Colorado, Florida, and Georgia)
- I'm a Logistics Officer in the US Air Force and am currently stationed at the NATO Joint Forces Command Headquarters in Brunssum. I absolutely love my job and the people I get to serve with.
- I moved to Maastricht in October 2016 and will be here until June/July 2019...who knows where I'll end up next.
- I was a swimmer for 14 years and competed at the collegiate level.
My CrossFit Story:
I started CrossFit in September 2012 at CrossFit Body Mechanic in Tampa, Florida. While at CFBM, I was a member of the Competition Team and placed in the top 10 at several local competitions. In October 2014, I moved to Warner Robins, Georgia and started training ad coaching at Praetorian CrossFit. I took a break from competing and focused more on coaching while I rehabilitated a major shoulder injury. I briefly came out of retirement to compete at a local competition, Box Wars, where my partner and I placed FIRST in Women's RX. I've since gone back into retirement and have no intention of competing again. I also trained at CrossFit 1394 in Kabul, Afghanistan for 7 months while deployed to Headquarters Resolute Support.
I received my CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certificate in October 2013 and hope to get my Level 2 Trainer certificate later this year.
Why I Became a Batteraof Back-up Babe
One of my favourite things about coaching is helping athletes do things they never thought they could do. We all start somewhere and it inspires me to see someone do things they thought were impossible.
