Hi I'm Becca!
Most people know me as Becca or Bex. I’ve been active and a believer my whole life. I have had many jobs and roles, but currently I am a CrossFit and nutrition coach at CrossFit Kinesis. But a little story on how I got here.
I began CrossFit in 2009, just after completing Grad school (yes, that is a long time ago). In 2014, God asked me leave my dream job as the Missions Director at Waypoint Church and move to Scotland to serve as a missionary. When I agreed to go I was giving up the right to my fitness and to CrossFit. I had no idea what I was saying yes to or what the year would have in store. While I was living in Scotland, God planted the seed in my heart about using my passion for health and CrossFit to spread His love and good news. Not only did He plant the seed, I was able to I earn my CrossFit Level 1 and began coaching using kilos and phrases like “press-ups” instead of “push-ups”. I also competed in and won my first individual competition in Northern Ireland. I moved back to Omaha in 2015, where I began coaching part-time and God has grown it into my full time job and I am loving it! I have a severe case of wanderlust and desire to share Jesus wherever I go. God has allowed me to do a lot traveling in my life. I have done CrossFit across 4 continents.
I CROSSFIT BECAUSE: I can’t sit still and I get bored easily. I like proving to myself I can achieve something. The Lord has used it to expose a lot of my weaknesses and has allowed me to grow stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The lessons learned in the gym can be applied throughout all of life.
What does it mean to be Rock Solid for Jesus:
Jesus has made a way where there is no way. He stands in the gap when I fall short and He has paid my debt to sin. He has shown me time after time He CAN be trusted. He has given and continues to give me more than I can ever ask or dream. My one desire in life is that whatever I do, wherever I go, whatever victory I have or trial I walk through, that my life and every fiber of my being points back to Jesus. He is worthy and all deserving of everything I have to give.
I am created in God’s image and I truly believe that, that means living in such a way that reflects His nature and His love everyday. I am honored I get to do that everyday in the way I love people through coaching and the way I honor my body through fitness and nutrition.
While not in the gym you can find me eating breakfast foods, cuddling my dog Sir Wallace, lounging outside, or contemplating yet another travel adventure.
