Getting in shape is many things to many people. For Nora, it’s about re-dedication and taking the time to do things right.
Nora came from a competitive running background and was even a sponsored athlete at one point in her life.
After a brief lapse where she had fallen away from keeping in shape due to giving birth to two boys, stress, having life happen and hitting a low point, she sought out a way to get back the body she had before. She never thought that would mean getting into even greater shape than she has imagined.
“Thanks to CrossFit and clean eating, at 37 years of age, I am in the best shape of my entire life.”
Nora started CrossFit in May of 2012 and hasn’t looked back, except to catch her breath between WODs.
“Through CrossFit, I developed a particular love for Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting. Add my love for gymnastics and inversions and I’m a happy woman.”
Because of her re-dedication to fitness and her drive to constantly do more, Nora now coaches and manages CrossFit 623 and has gone on to pursue Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. She says she appreciates the camaraderie, physicality and mental challenges of her martial arts, as well as the emphasis on technique and not simply muscling through the movements.
She has even gone on to found her own fitness brand, MorFitMorFab to help others who are trying to find their fitness and nutritional nirvana.
Nora’s story is one that is near and dear to Bars and Stripes, as we continue to turn our personal fitness journeys into professional ones and help to push others to change their lives – whether it’s through CrossFit, Powerlifting, Jiu Jitsu or Strongman. When you strive to help others, they will pass that along as they grow, too.
