Julia Snyder is a rare native of the DMV, having grown up in Greenbelt, MD. In addition to hanging out in her hometown, she enjoys eating oreos (double stuff only) and hanging out with her family, James the Man and Stella the Cat.
She has dabbled in many sports, from swimming as a kid to rock climbing, trail running, and Kung Fu later on. But she really found her calling and “drank the Koolaid” with CrossFit a little over three years ago, which she loves because of all the interesting and wonderful people she’s gotten to know.
When not wrangling high schoolers in her day job as a teacher, she can be found battling barbells and her own body weight into handstands, snatches, cleans, and muscle ups. Her favorite part of CrossFit is that it never gets any easier, there’s always new skills to work on and you can always add more weight and go faster.
