Shelly has been an athlete her whole life. She grew up in a small town where playing sports was what everyone did. Shelly continued playing basketball and track in college in Ohio while her biology degree allowed her to fall in love with how the body works. Shelly continued her education by attending Los Angeles Chiropractic College. While in school she worked as a personal trainer and soon found herself easily applying her vast knowledge of bio-mechanics and the way the body moves and works to her clients and had amazing results through her training methods. Once, she graduated she opened up her own personal training studio in Los Angeles and began developing her own style of training and bodywork.
Shelly was introduced to CrossFit in 2007 by Kristan Clever and soon started following the main site WODS. After a shoulder injury (labrum tear) and opting not to have surgery, she thought her days of CrossFit were over until she started doing mobility and stability work every day while slowly getting back into CrossFit. She is proof that despite injuries or limitations you can still CrossFit! Shelly also loves triathlons, playing basketball, hiking and pretty much any sport you want to throw at her. She has several major sports accomplishments in running a marathon, half ironman, several half marathons and in college her basketball team won the NAIA National Championship.
