Like many others out there, CrossFit has significantly changed my life for the better. I have always loved to work out and compete. I grew up playing sports and carried that competitive nature with me through the Naval Academy and my time in the Marines. But it was hard to find an outlet, something that would push me to not only do my best but to BE my best. After going through some pretty significant life changes, which included moving from CA to VA with my two babies, I was lucky enough to find my way into Rare CrossFit. Not only did I find something that pushed me and drove my competitive spirit, I also found an amazing community full of support and encouragement. I made life-long friends and met my wonderful husband Ryan. I watched CrossFit transform the lives of so many (including my own) and knew this would be a part of me from here on out. Through Ardent, Ryan and I are able to share our passion for CrossFit with our members, build a strong community and help each person that walks through our doors BE their very best.
