Dena started exercising in July 2011 with running and going to a global gym. In that year, she did not see any physical change. She could not figure out what she was doing wrong, but just knew she needed something more, something different. Dena had heard about CrossFit through a friend and went to try it out. She remembered coming home after the foundations class thinking, “this isn’t for me, I’m too old for this.” However, she told herself that she would give it a few months and that went from two days a week, to three days a week, and now five days a week. Dena started seeing results and she was instantly hooked! She realized the strength and conditioning training she gained during her workouts made a huge impact on her overall fitness goals.
Fast forward two years later to October 2013…Dena was stronger, in better shape, competed in local CrossFit competitions and made the jump into the coaching realm.
Dena is now in her mid 40’s with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. She never has felt better and she loves that her body is able to do things she never thought was possible. Her only regret…”I didn’t start sooner.” She truly loves helping people and being a part of their journey to a better and healthier lifestyle. She hopes more people her age would come try it out & see the difference CrossFit makes. “It’s not just for young people…it is truly for everyone.”
