Leann Lapp is approaching what could be her last CrossFit Regionals as she embarks on a new chapter in her life. Leann has been a competitive Crossfit Athlete since competing in her first Crossfit Open in 2012. She has been training out of the Academy of Lions and will be heading to the Crossfit East Regionals this coming week. In speaking with Leann, we learn that athletics has been something she’s been involved with her whole life; she is the definition of a natural athlete. With that said, Leann does confess that her natural talent only takes her to certain levels.
Some may be surprised to learn that all the while Leann has been trekking down her CrossFit path, there has been another massive undertaking which has shared the journey. Leann has been tackling her PhD in clinical psychology. She has been attending Ryerson University and, much like her competitive CrossFit career, will be concluding this chapter here in Toronto. Her next move- taking her career to the next level by accepting an internship in San Diego this coming summer.
Over the course of her training and career, Leann has had to dissect what her values are in order to level out her expectations for two very serious and unique components of her life. One would wonder how anyone could do these two things at such high levels simultaneously; but ultimately that is what makes Leann. And if we’ve learned anything from our convo, it’s that balance and results may be the objective, but knowing one’s self is the root of true success.
