+ What's Fran's story? Why is a 50+ woman teaching weight lifting?

As a kid I instinctively wanted to be strong. When I saw the boys getting muscles, I envied them, and tried to do push-ups at home. As an adult with an office job, I gradually became unfit, without realizing it, like most people. I was grateful to discover hard but fun workouts with weight training via CrossFit in 2004. I couldn’t help but immerse myself in it. Pretty soon I was earning training credentials and starting to train clients. I opened my own gym, CrossFit 206, in 2009. I closed it in 2017 to focus on the training and coaching described here.

I believe the most valuable single kind of exercise we can do is lifting weights for strength. I can explain why, if you come and see me.
