"I found the sport of fitness by accident in 2010. I happened to go to a CrossFit class with a friend and within one workout some sort of switch was thrown. For the first few months I was a member of a box and soon evolved into a competitive athlete. The metamorphosis from someone just trying to stay fit to athlete was a slow but steady uphill climb filled with disappointment, elation and emotional growth. Last year was my largest growth year in terms of skill and strength. This year has been about self reliance and confidence. It is an example for my children to persevere, it helps me help others as a coach and I feel as a woman, it has given me internal strength that I would not have otherwise found within myself. Everyday is a new challenge and I suppose that is why I train and why I compete.The support from my coaches and fellow athletes at SISU ignites my passion to come in and be the best and continue to compete and hopefully podium. The energy here at SISU makes my training and uultimately competing less about me and more about everyone here". -Amy Mandelbaum
