Taylor Richards

Ute Crossfit

Growing up with an athletic big brother definitely had a positive push on Taylor in the sports direction, not to mention her competitive edge. As a kid she played just about every sport and her success with basketball helped land her an athletic scholarship at USU. Taylor loved playing on that court, but would also find herself very drawn and invested in the lifting and conditioning aspect of basketball. Once her collegiate basketball days were over, she knew that she needed to find something to keep her in shape and feed her competitive nature. Challenging her body and mental toughness has always been appealing to Taylor and CrossFit has continued to channel that for her. There is great satiety at the end of a difficult workout session, one that possibly only chocolate can compete... Read the profile >>
