CrossFit has changed my life in many ways for the better physically, mentally and most definitely socially. CrossFit Manayunk quickly became my second home in 2012 and I now can’t imagine life without my CrossFit MontCo FAMILY! Participating in this sport has allowed me to be a better mother, teacher, friend and partner. My primary goal is to help contribute to our athletes’ success. As a teacher and coach, helping others comes naturally. The community aspect of CrossFit allows for an experience you can not get at another gym. Our “Box Family” has grown so much since opening our doors on a sunny March day back in 2014! CrossFit IS for everyone and may change your life forever, so don’t hesitate to give us a try!

Athletic History:

Athletic History: I played high school sports and continued to be involved recreationally throughout college and social leagues after I graduated. I have been teaching Health and Physical Education in the Philadelphia School District since 2008 and have coached Boys Basketball and Girls Softball. Co-owners David Ronca and Brooks Altman got me interested in the competitive nature of CrossFit and I have never looked back! . I am very proud to say that I continued to CrossFit at a very healthy rate throughout my two pregnancies inspiring several members to do the same! I was back in the squat rack 3 weeks postpartum and feeling great!
