I decided to open CrossFit Ripped because for once in my life I wanted to do what I truly love to do. I have a love, passion & addiction to CrossFit and the health and wellness it brings. My goal was to create a community & family where I can share this passion with others and help others reach their fitness goals. CrossFit has changed my life forever and my goal is to try and impact the lives of our members, through CrossFit, in the same way. I am a walking testimonial of what our CrossFit program can do as I go thru my late 30’s I am proud to say am in the best shape of my life….my goal is to help you get there too!!
