He is responsible for the periodization of sprint workouts and the successful implementation of a strength and conditioning program into the track program.

I am the co-owner of Project 15 Fitness and CrossFit 133 with my husband Dennis. I have 15 years of experience as an elementary school teacher, and I work full-time as an ESL teacher in Lynn. My business card says Member Management, but my favorite title at the gym is the Assistant Director of Stuff. I am the point person for members to handle membership questions, manage the use of the WODTogether program, and will handle anything else that needs attention.
I am the only one on staff who is not a Coach, and I do not have a background in fitness. Prior to starting CrossFit classes 3 years ago, my athletic background stopped after age 14. So how did I end up owning a CrossFit gym? At first CrossFit was Dennis’s thing. He had always been an athlete, and it seemed natural for him to take on those challenging workouts. It actually took four months of him coaching CrossFit classes before I even stepped foot in the door. I was terrified. Then an amazing thing happened, I started to like going to the gym. I discovered that strength training (something I was completely new to) was fun for me. I saw progress. I also loved CrossFit’s sense of community. There were people waiting to work out with me, which made it more enjoyable and less likely that I would skip a class. I actually saw improvements in a few of my chronic health issues, and I credit CrossFit with being able to avoid using medication for them.
I have learned how important it is to take care of yourself and your own health as a working mom. I know what it is like to challenge yourself physically when that might be completely new to you. I hope that I can help members reach their goals and make the community at CrossFit 133 and Project 15 Fitness one that supports each other and challenges each other. I will be here to help all of our members. I hope to see you in class!
