  • "Long term success and achievements are not possible without God." I got my first taste of competition at the age of eight at my first track meet and I was hooked. After running indoor and outdoor track for the next 15 years, I took a break for seven years knowing I would be back to some kind of competition. 2011 was when I found CrossFit, then weightlifting followed in 2014. Weightlifting was the best thing to happen to me because it came at a time in my life when I needed it most. I lost my job, went through a...

  • James Foster aka "King James Foster" has one of the biggest hearts you will ever encounter.  He teaches how to love unconditionally and accept people without question.  Rarely does he let any circumstance get him down.  "Inclusion is not tolerance, it is unquestioned acceptance." #IAMNOBULL

  • Do I think I have something to prove? Absolutely! Growing up, there was no room for complacency or mediocrity. There was no pretense about the level of excellence needed not only to succeed, but to trailblaze as a Black woman in this country. There was no quitting, no whining, and no time to wallow in self-doubt.  Looking back, I realize I was learning about what it means to show up. And that’s what I carry with me. It’s what allows me to be courageous, resilient, and relentless. It’s how I have the audacity to call myself a leader in spaces that...

  • "Never let someone else’s perception of you become your reality.” A coach who always pushed me along my journey shared this quote by Les Brown and it has stayed with me since then. There will always be obstacles to overcome; there will always be naysayers. I accept and understand that there were and will be constant obstacles or failures, but I try to learn and grow from each one. I believe deep down that if I am willing to make the sacrifices and continue to work and be humble that all things are possible. I surround myself with people who push...

  • I have been a professional track and field athlete for 10 years now. I became a heptathlete (7 events) when I got to university in 2006 because it seemed like the next challenge I was supposed to take in sport. In August 2011 I blew out my patellar tendon, creating my next challenge, to rehab and train to make the 2012 London Olympic team in 9 months.  I moved to rehab with someone I didn’t even know, lowered my head to stay focused and I did it. I became an Olympian in the heptathlon, competing against the best in the...

  • In every level of football, we are taught to “Control the Controllable.” No matter how prepared you are, things outside of your control can impact results and success. Football was my life, my outlet, and my greatest life-vehicle. I graduated from high school as the #3 OLB in the country. I went on to have an excellent career at The University of Tennessee and overcame many injuries. The year after recovering from a crucial ACL injury, I was rated the highest performing DE/OLB. Rather than entering the draft, I opted to come back for a final year. In the most...

  • I’ve had some real highs and lows over the years in CrossFit. And yet, I wouldn’t change a thing. The highs were what everyone dreams about: the podium picture, the highlight reel, the smiles, the validation. But for me, the lows were what truly got me there: rehabbing injuries, struggling through training, missing out on a goal by just the tiniest margin. Learning to pick myself up after a setback kept me humble. Persevering through frustrating times gave me grit. Failing taught me that everything worth having must be earned. Life throws obstacles in everyone’s way, but how you manage...

  • There are 16 games in a NFL regular season.  The rest of the year I train for those opportunities.  Training makes it possible for me to be the best quarterback I can be. I am Will Grier.  I am NOBULL.
