Amy Andrea Harris started training in CrossFit two years ago and says it was “love at first sweat”. Loving that it incorporates so many varied movements and styles of training, she has been competing locally since her fourth month of crossfit. Some of her competitions include Superfit, the annual Atlas games hosted by Titan Crossfit, and the local BACFAT tournaments (Baltimore Area Crossfit Affiliates Team) Although new to CrossFit, she was no stranger to competing. She has since embraced the process of building her strength, her speed and improving her health. Amy has a past history with soccer, softball, track and rowing.
She is currently remotely trained by strength and conditioning coach Jack Cambra of Crossfit Fifty and locally trained by Matthew Ropke of Clipper City Crossfit. In addition to competing in local GORUCK Challenges to raise money for fallen soldiers, firefighters and kid cancer funds, she will be competing in the Crossfit arena during the World Police and Fire games in Fairfax, Virginia June 28th and 29th 2015.
Amy is a Fire Specialist with EMT/-B & IV Tech. She has been a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department for almost 7 years and recently, was nominated to the Battalion Health Coordinator for her Department.
She takes full advantage of her opportunities for continuing her education and has earned professional qualifications including hazardous materials technician, rescue technician (vehicle extrication), high angle rescue, incident response to explosives for first responders, and more. She fully intends to contribute in any way possible to the forward progression of her department, especially in the fitness arena as she progresses to becoming an officer.
