It would provide continuous opportunities to learn new things and see just how far I could push my limits. This stuff was TOUGH and I was hooked! 1 year after starting CrossFit I earned my Level I CrossFit Certification and began coaching. My CrossFit story was just beginning. I know that for me there will always be another skill that I need to work on, another new opportunity for improvement, and something else to learn. My goal as a coach is to share what I learn and my journey with others to help them on their path to fitness.
Though my full-time job is managing the ICU and the Cardiac Telemetry unit in a hospital, my passion is coaching here at CrossFit Wilson and helping people become healthier. I love to see someone achieve that breakthrough on a skill or movement that they have struggled with. I get to share in the excitement and pride that comes when people push themselves and putting forth the effort and time to practice and finally succeed. I get to watch someone that could not physically run a short time ago be able to run or jog their first 400m without stopping and that brings a certain sense of satisfaction. By far the best part of coaching is very simply this group, this community. This group never ceases to amaze me with the support, encouragement, and motivation they provide to our members. Never have I met a group of people that are more accepting and supportive of each individual fitness journey. I am inspired to be a better athlete, coach, and person because of my CrossFit family.
One of the things that I love about CrossFit is that if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone you will develop skills and strengths you didn’t think were possible. Outside of your comfort zone is where change begins to happen. These changes are what allow us to live life to the fullest every day.
My name is Amy Lee and I am proud to be one of your coaches here at CrossFit Wilson. Now, are you ready to get out of your comfort zone with us?
