From the coaches:

Nicole’s story with CrossFit is inspiring as it really encompasses what we are all about and what you can achieve. Not only has Nicole gained confidence in herself as an athlete by discovering things she didn’t know she was capable of, but she has also established a relationship with many of the members and plays a big role in our “CF community”. It’s been amazing to see just how much Nicole has grown as an athlete over the past 7 months; from banded pull-ups to bar muscle ups! Nicole works hard for everything she has accomplished inside and outside of the box and because of that, PR-ing has become a weekly occurrence for Nicole and I see no signs of her slowing down. I strongly encourage you to take the leap and do a competition. I have no doubts you’ll be successful and I bet you will surprise yourself with the outcome! We are all glad Nolan kept nagging you and congratulation on nursing school!
