Retta's athletic career began in second grade when she picked up a basketball for the first time. While she played softball, field hockey, and lacrosse, basketball was her true love. She played basketball through her freshman year at Kutztown University until injuries forced her to "retire". Retta's retirement from playing opened up a new door to begin her coaching career. She coached the Boyertown Lady Bears basketball teams for eight seasons.
While training for her second full marathon in 2014, Retta tried CrossFit for the first time and it quickly became her new passion. She loves the energy and motivation of working out with other members and being challenged physically and mentally every day. Although injuries the past two years have forced her to sit out and scale the wods, her love for the sport has not wavered.
Retta's goals as a coach at CrossFit Fidelity are to motivate and encourage the members to achieve their goals and help them realize they can accomplish success outside of their comfort zone. Retta also finds much joy in being the CrossFit Kids coach. Her hope is that she can pay it forward to the most important people in the world...the children of our community! Retta also loves organizing events for our box!
