Ever since I can remember I have loved to be active. Growing up I was always pushed into sports by my Mom. Baseball and Basketball were the sports that I loved to play. It didn't matter to me that I wasn't the biggest or the best on the team, what mattered to me was.....I WAS ON THE TEAM. I enjoy being a part of a group of people with a common goal. Whether that's winning or just participating, it was far bigger to me that I was a "part of"!!
Along came CrossFit at the age of 48. My wife of 29 years came home and told me about it. She thought I might like it because we did something different all of the time. Gymnastics was a big part of it and I was pretty good in that area.
Here I am 7 years later and yes, CrossFit has changed my life. I get to be a "part of" something special to the most amazing group of people in the world. I love our membership and couldn't imagine not having each and every one of them in my life today.
We work hard and we have fun. It's not always easy and we don't always laugh. Emotions are a part of our growing process on a continual basis. Once everyone understands that, the sky is the limit to our success.
I have been fortunate enough to have participated in the CrossFit Masters Games age 50-54 2014 and 2016. Both years I didn't anticipate making the Games, but I did. It was because of our members that pushed me to get there.
CrossFit isn't for everyone, but everyone should at least try it. I guarantee you'll enjoy what we do if you have any desire to become fit.
There is only 1 requirement........SHOW UP AND WE'LL DO THE REST!!!!

I love to help people with their health, fitness and beauty needs! I was that girl looking for that "quick fix diet", that is up until I joined my first CrossFit gym in 2010. From that point on I changed my entire attitude towards a better and cleaner way to accomplish my fitness and nutritional goals.
Me and my husband Tony opened Turn 2 CrossFit with the hopes of changing lives. Something both of us enjoy. We cherish the time we get to spend with our members and hope their experience each and every time they come in is one that they will never forget. We know it's not easy to do what we (crossfitters) do, but in the end it's always worth it.
We vowed to treat every single one of our members like their lives depended on it because in a lot of instances, it does. It all starts with nutrition and ends in fun. Nothing that you'll do in the health and fitness world is going to be easy. However, coming in to Turn 2 CF we try and make it an atmosphere where you'll want to come back for more.
We love what we do! Please come and join in with us.
I was an overweight teenager who became passionate about exercise and nutrition in my 20s. I went through a period of over exercising and undereating…in essence I became an anorexic. I suffered many years trying to control my food, feeling very tired, and at a loss. I battled my way out of that period and really started focusing on nutrition and viewing exercise as something that was good for me and that I loved instead of something I HAD to do. I tried everything out there and found my love in MMA. I spent many years sparring in the ring and even got so far as a scheduled fight (the girl backed out). My friends knew my passion for fitness and one of them suggested I try this thing called Crossfit. I sent an e-mail to our local box to arrange an on-ramp session. It took that one session and I had “drank the cool-aid”. I couldn’t wait to go back for more.
I quickly became interested in coaching and earned my level-one certification a little over a year after I started Crossfitting. I interned for a bit and eventually started coaching my own classes. I ended up coaching a majority of the classes and at one point became the head coach. During this time I knew I wanted to enhance my coaching and started to attend different certifications. I also had this goal in the back on my mind to one day own my own box.
After coaching at our box for about 3 years, I began to coach out of my home garage. I accumulated a small clientele. I was happy to be able to coach and watch my athlete’s progress and gain confidence in their abilities.
I originally reached out to Tony to help me prepare for the Open. I had finished 10th in Socal Masters 40-44 and 221 worldwide in Masters 40-44 in 2016. My goal was to make top 200 worldwide in the next Open and make Master’s qualifiers. After my first week, I knew I had found my home. The people were top notch. Everybody was so welcoming and encouraging. After a few months, Tony approached me about being not just a coach, but a partner at Turn2. My goal of owning a box was in reach. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity Tony offered and here I am: part owner of Turn2 Crossfit.
The community at Turn2 is what makes me the proudest. I love coming to the box and interacting with our members. I love the drive and the focus of the individuals. I love that we can laugh and we can cry (yes you do that sometimes). I have become a better athlete but overall a better person because of this box.
Crossfit has taught me to view food as my fuel and that my muscles are a sign of beauty and strength. It has prepared me to be mentally strong when life doesn’t go as planned. Most of all, I love that my son says to me “I want to be strong just like you” as he grabs his biceps.
Being active and staying fit has always been a way of life for me. My competitive drive and spirit began as a kid playing sports. That same drive led me to a career in law enforcement, which began over 18 yearsago. I have been training, mentoring and coaching officers for over a decade.
As a full time law enforcement officer, I currently supervise and train a local Special Weapons and Tactics Team. Law enforcement, fire and military careers come with the element of unknown daily physical challenges. Before CrossFit, I would work out 5-6 times per week, running, biking, swimming and weightlifting, anything and everything to stay in shape, be prepared and of course, satisfy my competitive drive. This was very time consuming and it was difficult to balance work, family and personal training.
Through constantly varied functional movement workouts, CrossFit has allowed me to reach a more complete level of fitness and even turned my training time into family time, as my wif eand kids also train with me. It is truly a one stop shop for cardio, strength training and overall fitness. CrossFit prepares me for the unknown and the unknowable. It prepares my twin teenage boys for their high school sports programs and my wife for her everyday activities. We have never been more ready for life’s challenges.
The CrossFit community is encouraging, supportive and very family oriented. I personally have over a dozen family members in the CrossFit community. Many of which are a part of the Turn2CrossFit family. I enjoy coaching and helping others discover their abilities and watching them grow.
Strength & Honor,
