Growing up, Ann played softball and competed in diving and swimming. She remained active during college, but it wasn’t until 2004 when she found running that she started to get serious about exercise for health and wellness. She joined CrossFit Nittany in 2011 as a way to improve her general fitness and was instantly hooked. Ann still runs regularly, but she prefers the benefits of functional training through CrossFit.
Something most people don’t know about Ann? She has a wildly adventurous side – will try any food once no matter how gross, loves thrilling rides and daring feats.
