Born and raised in Florida, Mandy moved to the DMV for college where she attended American University. Mandy played a variety of sports, but cheerleading has always been her #1. Something about the comradery, competitive nature, and the strength and gymnastics components, keep the sport exciting—that’s why she gravitated towards CrossFit. It’s quite similar. You’ll find people of varying fitness levels from diverse backgrounds, all striving for the same goal—self improvement.
Since starting CrossFit in 2016, Coach Mandy knew that it was going to be so much more than fitness. CrossFit goes beyond that one hour in the gym. The feeling of achieving a goal, in the company of your friends, is unprecedented. The desire to help people achieve their goals, and a little encouragement from some friends, is what led her to get her CFL1 cert. Whether they’re hitting a new PR or finishing the last few reps in a grueling WOD, Coach Mandy is grateful for the opportunity each week to cheer on and coach our athletes!
