Welcome Michelle!

You may have noticed over the last couple of weeks that we have a new coach on staff - Michelle Busby! Here is her bio:

"Originally from South Africa, Michelle's CrossFit journey began in Cape Town at Cape CrossFit in 2011. Cape CrossFit was her first CrossFit family and their ethos, "Doing all the right things, for all the right people, for all the right reasons.” is something that deeply resonated with her, and she tries to live by it daily. CrossFit inspired and empowered Michelle to quit her desk job in Cape Town allowing her to follow her dreams of travelling the world and grow as an individual. Michelle knew that no matter where she went she would always have a community of like-minded people at every box she dropped into along her travels. Michelle happened to meet her husband while coaching at CrossFit Dublin in Ireland and she has made so many incredible friends at almost every box she has dropped into along the way.

Being an athlete inspires her to push harder, test her limits, and always strive to be better than yesterday. Being a coach inspires Michelle to constantly pursue improvement as a person and a leader. It is a very humbling experience to be able to change a person’s life, sometimes in the smallest way like getting their first pull-up or helping to refine someone’s technique and watching them snatch the equivalent of a small house. Sometimes that change is even bigger like getting someone off 90% of their diabetic medication or helping to be a part of a life changing transformation in a person who never believed they could be capable of personal greatness."

We are excited to have Michelle join our community as she has a lot of coaching experience to offer! Fun fact: she even went to the Africa Regionals in 2012!
