The New Year is all about starting fresh. New regimes, new diets, new everything it seems... but what it really comes down to is having the determination to achieve the new goals you set for yourself. For me, my goal this year is to embrace who I am. CrossFit has taught me that I am an individual who has her own strengths, in and outside of the box. I enjoy what I do; photography is my niche and I am learning every day how to become a better artist. 

I wanted to share with you a series of black and white photographs I took at CrossFit New Hampton in New York. The athletes at this box are my friends and family. These athletes train almost once a day, every day. They show the utmost determination to become better athletes and strong-minded individuals.
