From a young age I was a gymnast and played all kinds of sports but In my early 20's I was diagnosed with crohn’s disease, bi polar 2, had eating disorders, and gained tons of weight to 175 lbs. Over the next 10 years I battled disordered eating, was cleared of the crohn's disease, and lost the weight to 105 lbs to compete in bodybuilding. After bodybuilding, I found Crossfit and went to regional's 3 times and the Crossfit Games as a Masters athlete in 2018.
What brings me passion now is showing my clients that whether it is changing their health, their aesthetics, or their performance, anything is possible with enough time, consistency and determination. I truly have lived it and I live for helping my clients face their fears and find their authentic selves. Creating the Fearlessly Authentic Movement and dreams of the tribe inside this movement is now my purpose.
Q&A WITH CHASITY
What made you want to be a part of FLA?
I am in the tribe just like everyone else. I am going after my goals and living the lifestyle going after my dreams.
What got you into fitness?
I was a gymnast at 18 months … so my parents got me into fitness. My mom was an aerobics instructor and my dad was a professional boxer. i think it was just always in my blood and there was never going to be another way. I grew up in a gym because my mom owned one and taught 5-7 aerobics classes a day.
What's your biggest achievement?
Physically definitely making the Crossfit Games as a masters athlete in 2018 – I was really proud of making it to regionals as well as an individual two years before that and being 9th in the region. Mentally I was very proud to finish college early and getting my Bachelors in 3.5 years.

Sing and Dance. I was singing solo on stage at church for the first time at age 3. I have. honestly always had performance inside me and always loved singing and speaking.
What is your favorite food?
Wow, I love food!!! I love brownies – but they need to be box brownies and made in a muffin tin and crispy on the outside and made with 2 eggs so they are fudgy and of course I would love it if the calories didn’t count so I can eat the whole box.
