CrossFit & Weightlifting Coach
April has always been a fan of competition. Growing up as one of four girls, she participated in all kinds of sports at an early age: basketball, tennis, street hockey. One of her shining moments was winning an all boys Tae Kwon Do competition as a 10-year-old, a form of karate she practiced for more than a decade.
A former high school swimmer, April was recruited to play softball at the University of Pittsburgh and continued to lift and do functional movement training at traditional globo gyms. She found CrossFit in November 2012, while training for a marathon and was drawn to the competition.
A voracious learner, April earned her CrossFit Level One in November 2014, and has worked on olympic weightlifting with Olympian Cara Heads Slaughter for the past two years. She is an Eat to Perform Certified Nutrition Coach, helping people build better relationships with food and eat to fuel their performance in the gym. She is a firm believer in attacking weaknesses and moving with virtuosity.
