Micah’s passion for fitness was sparked at age 5 when her elementary school gym teacher recruited her to play on his basketball team. Since then, she has always made fitness or sport a part of her life.
Micah has a BA in Psychology and spent the first 10 years of her fitness career teaching aerobics, personal training, and yoga. She focused on behavioral change and the mind/body connection, mainly in the form of yoga. In 2009, a friend introduced her to CrossFit with Filthy Fifty as her first workout. She immediately knew CrossFit would be a part of her future. She soon completed her Level 1 Course and began a love/hate relationship with everything CrossFit.
In January 2013, Micah joined the Bluegrass family. The Bluegrass community inspired her to reconnect with her inner coach and she completed her Level 1 renewal at Crossfit Mayhem in October 2013. The years in between first finding CrossFit and finding Bluegrass were filled with growing her family.
