My name is Misty Smith and I am a Pacific Northwest native who landed in NorCal. I have been passionate about health and fitness for as long as I can remember. I still recall being in seventh grade physical education class, playing hoops, and knowing I would be a Physical Education teacher.
I was fortunate enough to attend a great private college and be a two sport collegiate athlete. Upon completing my university degree, I was a physical education and health teacher for six years and I also coached high school basketball and track. Life then took its course and babies came along. I officially retired from K-12 education and coaching high school sports to be a mom and focus on family.
After some time off to be with my kiddos, I returned to the health and fitness field as a nutrition and CrossFit coach.
As I have observed through K-12 education and coaching, we have really lost focus on taking care of ourselves and respecting the body God gave us. Our eating habits are poor; people do not get out to PLAY anymore; ultimately, we take our health for granted. People fail to recognize if we put a focus on our health now, we will be able to give more and be successful in all areas of life- school, work, family, home. Great health includes spiritual, mental, social, as well as, physical health. Healthy bodies lead to healthy minds! Let us not neglect this area of health.
I am always listening and I love to hear your successes, challenges, motivation, and inspiration!
