Sara Wilkinson isn’t your typical mom.
“I don’t drive a minivan. I drive a jacked-up Jeep with a lift and a winch. And I have tattoos, and I’m getting my hair colored all purple next week,” she says. “I don’t do that to be crazy or rebellious or someone I’m not. I’ve just always been a little different.”
The 35-year-old started CrossFit just because she wanted to be in shape.
“I never, ever had the intention to teach or train people. At all,” Wilkinson explains.
Today, she’s a coach at CrossFit Takeover in Virginia Beach, Va., and a member of CrossFit’s Level 1 Seminar Staff.
“Being on staff is my absolute dream job besides being a mom,” Wilkinson says. “I have my dream job. I love it. I love it.”
