Hey Everyone! My name is Mandy and I’m a coach here at CF Structured! I was introduced to CrossFit in May of 2011 and started coaching in 2013! I’ve always had a huge passion for fitness and nutrition and I love being able to share it with the community! After high school I felt lost since I was no longer playing any sports and BOOM, that’s when I found CrossFit! In college, I studied Kinesiology with an emphasis on Health and Human Performance and graduated from the University of La Verne. In college, I found the sport of weightlifting; so while I was still coaching CrossFit, I decided to join the weightlifting team at ULV and absolutely fell in LOVE with it! I then, earned my USA weightlifting sports performance certification shortly after. My goal is to share the sport of weightlifting and help people discover what their bodies are capable of achieving! There’s nothing greater than seeing someone do something for the first time and them saying, “I never thought I’d be able to do that!” It’s incredible what can happen when you set your mind to something! When I’m not at the gym, you’ll find me either hanging out with my family or studying for school.
My interests include: taking solid naps, drinking wine, eating ice cream, devouring donuts (or sour gummy bears), and throwing barbells around-gotta put those extra carbs to use
