Laurel has been involved with the CrossFit world since August 2013. After 6 months of recreational training she received her Level 1 certification. At almost 1 year to the date of her first WOD, she competed for the first time. Laurel’s passion for competition and coaching lead her out of the 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. world at Apple and into a full time coaching position.
She is working toward the various certifications that will allow her to coach collegiate athletes in strength and conditioning. By being a competitor and professional in the fitness industry, Laurel hopes to show others – young girls and women, specifically – that it is okay to be strong.
A lover of the heat, Laurel relies on Ultima to keep her hydrated while training in the perpetually warm Texas climate. Though she favors the Tart Cherry and Grape flavor, she is known to mix it up by combining the Lemonade and Raspberry.
