Megan Gaither

It helps remind me that success is up to me everyday. It’s a choice to become better and that’s what I want in my life.

1. Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi my name is Megan Gaither I’m 33 years old and am in the best shape of my life thanks to CrossFit, a good diet and motivation from those around me. I have a BS for UNT in applied behavior analysis and criminal justice.  I work for Denton county juvenile probation. I have been with them for 10 years.

I joined the Army reserves in 2010. I deployed to Kuwait in 2014-2015 as a black hawk mechanic. I’m currently a civil affair Sargent(E-5) with the 490th in Grand Prairie. I have been coachingCrossFit since February of 2016 and got my level 1 CrossFit cert in June 2016. I play rec-league softball on a coed team on Friday nights and I have a puppy named Samantha (Sammi), she is a black lab that is too cute.

I’m trying to start handstand walking.

4. What’s one life goal you’re currently pursuing outside of fitness?

I am working to get a promotion for E-5 to E-6 in the Army.

5. What does it mean to you to Compete Every Day?

Since I have been introduced to CED, I wear a wristband everyday. It helps remind me that success is up to me everyday. It’s a choice to become better and that’s what I want in my life.

6. What is one obstacle you’re proud you’ve overcome?

An obstacle that I’m proud I overcame is being healthy. I was raised on fast food, twinkles and donuts. A lot of my family is over weight and has several health issues. I have chosen to eat healthy and to workout 5-6 times a week. For now I don’t have any of the health issues that plague my family. 

7. What/who do you compete for?

I compete for my family and for me. To be better and to push myself everyday.
