About:

Sports have always been the biggest part of Janel’s life. Her competitive drive is what brought her to high level sports and also what originally got her hooked on CrossFit. Janel is passionate about continually getting better, faster, and stronger in any sport she attempts.

Janel played semi-pro Women’s tackle football but eventually had to retire due to some busted knees. But she soon found that CrossFit was exactly what she was looking for to fuel her competitive fire as an athlete. Little did she know, it would lead her to the most amazing and fulfilling career, as she took on coaching others.  

Janel Celebrates being a Coach:

“It brings me great joy to help people become the best version of themselves through health and fitness. And one of the many reasons why I love CrossFit is, the focus on community and living a healthy lifestyle, these things are often overlooked, when they should be celebrated instead.

And if you don't know who I am at the gym, well I'm the one with tattoos, literally EVERYWHERE!”
