Tara first joined the CrossFit 6S family in the summer of 2018. In the fall of the same year, she added Olympic weightlifting to her training regimen and she has been a staple of CrossFit 6S and Rx Weightlifting ever since. Tara is the embodiment of a hybrid athlete. On top of CrossFit and Weightlifting, Tara is also known for her long distance endurances races, and comes from an equestrian riding background. Whether it’s in the domains of maximal strength, explosive power, aerobic conditioning, or anaerobic endurance, Tara can do it all! You only have to look at her competition record to see proof of her fitness across various domains.
Unfortunately, Tara will be leaving us to seek out new adventures in Vancouver in April. We are so saddened to see Tara leave us, but we are so grateful and happy for the laughs, cheers, and lifts that Tara shared with us in the time that she was here. We wish you all the best Tara, and this family you have built at CrossFit 6S and Rx Weightlifting will always be there at the finish line, behind the competition platform, waiting for you and cheering you on!
