At a friend’s urging, Huong finally tried out Crossfit. She was hooked and never looked back. She loved it so much that she wanted to share her passion for Crossfit with others and decided to get her Level 1. Seeing how Crossfit transformed her strength and power, she loves to empower women to lift heavy to get stronger. Huong’s background of lifting came from the bodybuilding world where she competed in figure competitions. When she’s not coaching or doing a WOD, Huong’s other passions include rock climbing, mountaineering, yoga, skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, and any other sports that takes her outside. Huong and her husband enjoy adventure travel and an active lifestyle together. She started rock climbing because she had a fear of heights and that soon led to mountaineering. Huong has been to Everest base camp and Kala Patthar in Nepal and summited Mount Aconcagua in December 2011 at 22, 841 feet for her honeymoon. She was also the first Vietnamese person to accomplish this feat. When she’s not active, she enjoys healthy cooking and baking.
