Barb has been an athlete her whole life. She was a competitive gymnast for 6 years and a varsity cheerleader in high school. She has competed in three NPC shows, one in the bikini division and two in the fitness division. Due to scoliosis and herniated discs in her spine, she was unable to continue competing in fitness. It was then that she started CrossFit. Because of CrossFit, she was able to stop physical therapy, and can now perform all movements without being limited by her injury. CrossFit has not only kept away her back pain helped her avoid surgery, it has also helped her discover what she wants to do with her life. She has been competing in Crossfit since 2012 and has been a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer since December 2013. She wants to do nothing more than help people achieve their fitness goals, no matter what they are, through Crossfit.
