Hillary was first exposed to CrossFit in 2013 and went from being a casually active college student to a dedicated CrossFit member when she saw what CrossFit gave her body the ability to do. She moved to AR in 2014 and joined Bearstate as a member in 2015. She received her CF-L1 certification in 2019 and began coaching part time. She particularly enjoys coaching Kettlebears and believes giving children a healthy perspective about fitness is important for their long term health. You will see her coaching and working out in a skirt as part of her personal journey of faith. She enjoys being active in and around NWA with her husband, Justin, and son Benton Oakes.
