She meets her husband in high school where he joins the service which leads them both to a life in CrossFit! Haley was the subject of a bet in which her friends thought she would be the first to quit and ended up be the last one standing.

Back in March of 2018, the CrossFit Journal published an article entitled, "Earned Organic Armor Withstands 40 MPH Car Strike". We were intrigued to discover how Rileigh Denis miraculously survived this potentially fatal pedestrian accident in 2016. We wanted to hear more about the accident and learn about what's been going on with Rileigh since all that. Rileigh talks about how little she remembers about the accident, her background with CrossFit and how she finds the strength and fortitude today to battle a new diagnosis of a rare form of Leukemia. Cat gets a lesson in essential oils, and in typical BTJ fashion, we get more than we bargained for by going behind the story and finding out what's next for Rileigh and her family.

Tricia grew up as a competitive cheerleader and that is how she met her husband. When they had their first child Bronson, he was born with a traumatic brain injury! Bronson was going to need everything his mom had and more. After years of doing everything in her power, she discovered CrossFit and that gave her so much more! It gave her the strength to be able to carry her child who needed her, and maybe even bigger a community that accepted her with open arms and wanted to help lift her and her family up. It became a happy place for Tricia and surprisingly Bronson as well. The noise of the gym became a comfort to him and the family could enjoy CrossFit together.
