Warrior CrossFit Muscatine
This is where I credit the collision between my love of cooking and being healthy started. That chance I took walking into the box in August 2014 has been the most impactful one. With encouragement and support I cooked, trialed recipes and helped people on good substitutions for a healthier diet. My people, my tribe. If you are in the Muscatine, Iowa area I suggest you stop by and see for yourself what the CrossFit hype is all about. They offer classes that are adaptable to all levels of fitness or non-fitness. I was in my early 30's with no athletic background or sports in high school. I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided I needed to make that change.
