Chau was first introduced to CrossFit after having her first baby about 1 year ago while looking for an outlet of everyday rigors in the shortest amount of time possible. As a long time Bikram yoga practitioner, she soon found that with a new baby, 90 minutes of class in addition to travel time was no longer feasible. With CrossFit, she could easily fit in a one-hour class into her new life and achieve the same amount of work and satisfaction. With a B.S. in Biology & Sociology followed by a Master's in Healthcare Administration, Chau's education has been heavily focused on health and science in many different aspects. Coming from a health/science education and work background for the last decade, CrossFit as a career was the perfect fit and a dream come true. "For the last 10 years I was working on the other end of the health spectrum, the sick end. Patients only got temporarily better but never quite completely cured. When I started CrossFit, it occurred to me that this phenomenon of caveman eating coupled with constantly varied, functional movements could change one's life and completely reverse the damage and false mantras of fitness. I witnessed it firsthand in my life as well as my husband's life, we have never been healthier or more fit even when we were in the prime of our youth!"

 

Chau works hard everyday to expand and share her knowledge and skills of nutrition and CrossFit to make CrossFit Armada a strong community based box. "I am so excited to be given such a gracious opportunity to forever change lives in ways people do not even know possible!"

I stepped into the CrossFit world in 2013. From that very first day, I fell in love with the sport because of its competitive nature and the results it offers. But most of all, the community it promotes is what has made a huge impact on my life. Since I started my CrossFit journey, I have seen undeniable personal growth in all aspects of my life. I am very grateful and excited to share my knowledge and experience. There is nothing I enjoy more than helping others realize their goals, potential, and helping them achieve them.
