Do you have a gym membership, but can’t remember the last time you made any progress (or showed up)? I’m Sam Ritchie, and I’ve been there and said ALL of those things. You don’t like what you see in the mirror, you avoid the scale, and you keep telling yourself you’ll take care of your body eventually.
While in college, I lived a fairly active lifestyle going on hikes, playing in the intramural volleyball league on campus, and going snowboarding, but never specifically trained for anything.
After a hard breakup, I took up long-distance running to help cope with overwhelming emotions. I developed a love for running and fitness. I found CrossFit unexpectedly and immediately loved it. Right away seeing how the community embraced me and made me feel welcome. I knew my true passion was to coach others.
I love being a CrossFit coach because it allows me to help others see their true potential even when they can’t see it themselves. I love sharing the excitement of seeing our members reach their goals and living their best life!
