Beginning early with dance lessons and then discovering a love for gymnastics at 5, she worked her way to the top, becoming a Level 10 gymnast at age 13. After a devastating injury, Christine made a tough decision to walk away from gymnastics at 15. She quickly found trackin high school, competing and excelling at sprints and pole vault. After high school, Christine desperately missed being an athlete - training, being part of a team, working hard towards a goal. After dabbling in various forms of exercise, she finally found CrossFit® at 23 and immediately knew she had found her thing.
Christine was so sure about her future in CrossFit® that she uprooted her life in Michigan in 2017 and moved to Springfield, Missouri to be part of Team CrossFit 417. She competed in her first CrossFit® Games that year with Team 417 and then again in 2018, taking 5th overall. Christine's goal in 2020 is to qualify to compete at the CrossFit® Games individually and is working hard every day to be able to achieve that goal.
When Christine isn't training or competing, you can find her at 417 coaching, cleaning, and helping to manage the gym. Outside of the gym, Christine enjoys anything creative - cooking, baking, drawing, painting, writing, hand-lettering, you name it. She also enjoys hanging out with friends at coffee shops, laughing, and going on one wheel ride adventures.
There is no doubt that the Coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on almost
every person. Here at JUNK we jumped into action by producing masks for our
healthcare professionals and starting a fundraiser to benefit Feeding America.
We also implemented strong protocols to protect our staff, long before it was
required by authorities.
Due to these efforts and very high demand we are currently experiencing much
longer processing and shipping times than we are accustomed to. We are open,
working hard, and going to get every order out as fast as we can.
CURRENT PRODUCTION AND SHIPPING TIME ON NEW ORDERS IS 2-3 WEEKS.
We appreciate everyone, especially those on the front lines, fighting so we
can return to better days.
