Missy has always had a passion for health and fitness, played many different sports growing up, and has a degree in Exercise Science from Missouri State University. Before CrossFit, Missy was a competitive endurance racer and trained other endurance athletes for adventure races, triathlons, marathons and ultra-marathons. She has also worked in personal training and owned her own training business.
Missy found CrossFit and started following main-site workouts in the winter of 2012 after losing her father suddenly and unexpectedly. She needed something new to focus on, and CrossFit saved her.
She made her way into her first CrossFit gym in the fall of 2013 and by the spring of 2014 obtained her CrossFit L1 Training Certificate.
Missy came to CrossFit WatchTower upon its opening in November 2015. Since then, she participated in one of the first CrossFit Adaptive Training Specialty Courses and has also taken the Be Your Own Body Guard Workshop, along with many of the online courses CrossFit offers. She is currently a CrossFit L2 Trainer and is looking forward to taking her L3 certification in the near future.
Eli first started dabbling in Crossfit 10 years ago when he discovered Crossfit Endurance after 2 years of trying to be a distance runner. He was beat up, and the training methodology he found in Crossfit just seemed to make sense. Just as important was that it was fun.
Eli grew up playing basketball, football, skateboarding, jumping fences, climbing trees and riding BMX. He had to move, and he had to move better than I did the day before. Crossfit, for Eli, is a pursuit that allows me to scratch the same itch and play every single day. “Every day, there is something new to learn, something to challenge both mind and body. Every night when my head hits the pillow, I need to know that I did something that day to make myself better. Crossfit is a ready avenue for that sense of accomplishment, and I love helping others discover that.”
