My journey with CrossFit started about 4 years ago when I was at a point in my life where I was definitely out of shape, and far away from healthy. I was focused pretty much anything other than fitness. After about 6 months of trying to convince me that I should give CrossFit a try my brother Shon finally succeeded at getting me into the local box. From that moment on I was hooked!! After my first WOD I knew that this is where I wanted to be and opening my own affiliate was my new dream. I started studying everything I could get my hands on about CrossFit and Weightlifting, received my CFL1 and USA Weightlifting Sports Performance certifications, opened EMCF - and the rest is history. 

CrossFit is limitless, and if you are willing to put in the work, so are the results. We all come from different walks of life and have different beliefs, but inside the walls of Empire Mine CrossFit we are family. We don't judge, we encourage. We don't try to be better than anyone, just try to be better versions of ourselves. We are all on the journey together and my number one goal is to give every single person who walks through our doors the same exact feeling I had the first time I experienced a CrossFit community. I hope to sweat alongside you, and see you in a class soon.
