“I am extremely excited to be a part of the American GAINZ Team! Over the years I have become more aware of what products I put in my body and I am grateful to have found a quality protein that works for me.”
Meet Janet Black: A full-time Special Education teacher, mother, wife, and Crossfit powerhouse who currently holds the title of “2015 Reebok Crossfit Games Champion” (40-44 Masters Division).
As a youth, Janet’s passion was around playing the game of soccer. This passion later grew into a love for coaching and developing others in the sport. While a soccer coach at SMU (Southern Methodist University) in Dallas, Janet’s ambition of taking her personal fitness training to the next level became a reality with the introduction to Crossfit. The rest is history.
Janet has qualified for Regionals (South Central) every year since she participated in her first Open 6 years ago with her best finish in 2012 where she earned a 1st place victory. Since then, Janet has managed to achieve several athletic feats including:
- 2015 - Reebok CrossFit Games Champion (40-44)
- 2014 - Reebok CrossFit Games – 7th place finish (40-44)
- 2013 - Reebok CrossFit Games – team participant
In 2014 & 2015, Janet successfully competed for the D.C. Brawlers (NGPL) as their “40 + female athlete” supporting the team to earn back-to-back Grid Championships.
“We are honored to support such a strong woman and athlete. Janet is a true inspiration and role model for so many, dedicating her life to the betterment of others. We are thrilled to have her on the AGN Team.”
