Please Welcome Coach Taylor!
You’ve probably seen a new face around the gym as of late. Please welcome Taylor Conaway to the training staff at Triumph. We asked Taylor some questions to get to know her a little better. Here’s what she had to say:
1. Where are you from?
I was raised in a town a half hour North of Columbus called Galena.
2. What is your training background?
I started basic lifting weights while in the Marine Corps. I got really bored with that and shifted to CrossFit in the beginning of 2017.
3. What is your perfect cheat meal?
Dessert. I don’t really like to eat awful food for a meal, but I can put down some good dessert.
4. What do you like most about training others?
The athlete becoming autonomous and being able to understand when they are in the right and wrong positions
5. What big-picture issue do you want to work toward?
Helping the community take more of an interest in their overall health (mental, physical, spiritual and nutrition). I have seen single-handedly through myself and others how all of them mesh and make life so much better.
6. What do you foresee being the next major milestone(s) in your career?
Getting my CF-L1, I am a personal trainer, but have limited group class experience.
7. What’s one area you’d like to grow in that you currently find challenging? Why do you find it challenging?
Becoming good at coaching the sport of Weightlifting past teaching more of the basics. I can spot faults but finding the exact cue or cues is a problem that I have.
8. What or who motivates you the most?
As a coach, you guys/the athletes motivate me to help you do better because you want to better yourselves. Motivating myself, I want to be proficient in what I do and be fit for my health all over. My fitness has improved my life all around and I hope I can help others find that in any way I can.
9. What are you looking forward to the most at Triumph?
The community. I was all alone in my “bro lifting” journey and when I found CrossFit, I came out of my shell a lot and made amazing friendships. I hope to continue to spread the community that boxes have.
