My name is Victoria and I am from Charlotte, NC. I grew up doing cheerleading, volleyball, basketball, and softball. Sports have always been a big part of my life. When I went to college, I knew I wanted to continue being active and that's when my fitness journey began. I started casually lifting weight in the campus gym. Eventually, I learned how to squat, bench, and deadlift. I wanted to learn how to do the Olympic lifts so I join the club weightlifting team at UNC. Weightlifting was a big part of my college experience as I served as the head coach for the club my senior year. I didn't start CrossFit until after college when I wanted to challenge myself and try new things.
I enjoy coaching because I like helping others find joy and fun in fitness. I like focusing on the mental benefits of working out, rather than just the physical ones. Representation and inclusion are important to me, especially in the fitness community.
