I am  a wife, mother of 2 children, Charlie 18 and Olivia 6, full time anatomy & physiology/biology teacher, and co-owner of CrossFit Newton with my amazing husband, Gil Cohen.   My hubby made this blog for me to document my journey to the CrossFit Games.  My goal is to qualify for the masters, 45-49 year old group, at some point.  Last year I made it to the masters regionals qualifier and placed 87th worldwide.  That’s a LOT better than last year, 195th overall.  Moving up and up and up!!!

During February of 2014, I began training with Jay Leydon of CrossFit Milford.  I have known Jay since my level 1 cert in 2009.  He knows me better than any other coach besides my hubby, so I trust him a LOT!  I sure have seen many changes, that’s for sure.  Excited to see what happens with the 2015 crossfit open.

Amy Mandelbaum, SISU athletics, 4th place Masters Competitor 2012, 2013, 45-49, CrossFit Games, is my self-proclaimed mentor along this journey.  I want to thank her in advance for all of her guidance and support along my journey to the 2014 CrossFit Games.
