Welcome to Obstacle Fitness! I'm so excited to share this journey with you. Obstacle course racing started off as a hobby for me in the early 2000s. Fast forward 15 years(!) later, and I have taken the leap to share my passion with you in this business venture.
It took me a while to get to this point. I was laid off in 2018. For the first time in my professional career, I was unemployed. Over a year later, for one reason or another, I still found myself unemployed. For somebody that prided herself on her independence, it was difficult to not contribute financially to our household.
In June of 2018, I went to a clinic at an obstacle course and Ninja Warrior gym out in Central Massachusetts. The discovery of a gym that focused on obstacle course training was eye-opening and exciting for me. Shortly after that I signed up for a class to become a certified Spartan SGX trainer.
By January 2019 I was a Spartan SGX trainer. Slowly but surely, I've arrived here. In this space I'll share my training tips, advice on mental toughness, and how I'm overcoming my own challenges in racing and in life. I hope you will join me!
