Growing up in the farmlands of southern Illinois, Taylor was always extremely active in a wide variety of competitive sports. She grew up competitively racing dirt bikes, played travel soccer, and participated in any sport she could get her hands on. Taylor left the farm life and moved to the big city for school, where she left traditional sports, but continued to be active in the gym. Taylor still lives for outdoor sports and activities. She often is outside riding her vintage motorcycles around Chicago and going on road trips.
She started working with a personal trainer who introduced her to basic CrossFit style workouts and introduced olympic weight lifting. After being told that there was a sport where you could compete and showcase your physical level of fitness, she was hooked. She started taking classes online while going through college to become a certified fitness professional.
After testing out the different CrossFit gyms around the city, she stumbled into Windy City and was amazed by the facility, the coaches, and the community of members. She started training to become a competitive athlete, and the rest was history!
Her main goal as a coach is to not only help people reach their best self, but to get out there and use their fitness to go on bigger adventures.
