After I graduated from college, I won a Fulbright scholarship to teach English in the Middle
East. During that time, I became CrossFit Level 1 Certified, and I also taught health and
fitness classes to the local population in Amman, Jordan and the West Bank. I have now
been training and coaching novices and advanced athletes alike for three years, and I am
very happy to say that I am in the process of getting ready to open my own non-profit gym
to continue the work I was doing in the Middle East right here at home in the US.
Throughout my experiences as a health and fitness coach, I quickly learned just how hard
and intimidating CrossFit can be to beginners, especially for beginners who cannot afford
a CrossFit gym membership (which normally costs between $150-$250/month.) Even when
women can afford a membership, the question then arises as to whether the gym she chooses
will be able to meet her specific needs as a woman. In my opinion, most generic CrossFit
programs either lack a dedicated strength program for women altogether or the one they
provide is severely lacking in structure and depth. While I do love CrossFit, the
problems that I found with it were undeniable. For this reason, I decided it was time
to start my own program. One that would address the problems I have found in most CrossFit
programs and in all of the home workout sites readily available online.
Women's Fit Way seeks to address the specific needs and concerns of women. At
http://www.womensfitway.com, I offer free, general daily programming for all
levels of skill and experience, affordable personalized programming for those
