Clara was a competitive fencer for 10 years growing up, but was a self-ascribed “lazy athlete” – showing up late on purpose so she wouldn’t have to do conditioning. After eating a fair amount of fried rice in Senegal for a full year, she was researching nutrition in order to get a hold of her health when she came across CrossFit. After 6 months of YouTube videos, training by herself in the school gym, and 40lbs dropped, she joined a box and got her CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate. Through training, she gained the confidence to walk onto the Division III Lacrosse team at Bard College.
When she’s not in the gym, you can find Clara surfing, backpacking, snowboarding, or playing Super Smash Bros (also totally a sport). Having recently moved to Boston from Los Angeles for an Electrical Engineering M.S. program at BU, she is a new but excited member of the CFB team and can’t wait to hear about your goals, your goats, and your gummy bear addiction.
