FUN FACTS ABOUT SHANNON: Although Shannon seems conservative, underneath all of that quiet and sweet is an encyclopedia of information. We are certain that you can take whatever she says to the bank and cash in on her wealth of knowledge.
I am a mom of two and a teacher in the School District and I guess it’s appropriate to say I stumbled into CrossFit. Prior to my 40th birthday, I was floundering with my fitness. My son had a free trial at a local box, so we headed over to see what the CrossFit was about. I watched for about 15 minutes before I called my friend Mari and talked her into signing up with me. It was love at first sight. Once I found Outcast CrossFit, I quickly increased my training from twice a week to 5 times. I began setting goals and challenging myself and learned everything I could from every coach in the gym.
It had been 25 years since I quit gymnastics, so I was thrilled to be an athlete again. Competitions, however, were not in my sights, so I hesitated when a team asked me to do the 2013 Vegas Fit Wars. It would only be a few short months before I was the one recruiting people to compete with me. From there, I completed the CF Level 1 course in 2014 to gain more knowledge about Crossfit; however, I have found that coaching has its own set of rewards. The other coaches at Outcast CrossFit are truly outstanding humans who are really fun to learn from and work with. Besides, helping people reach their goals just feels good. And I love these people.
