Kristen has been involved with competitive sports all throughout her life. She began working in the fitness industry over 15 years ago while working on her college degree to pursue a career in teaching. After teaching middle school for five years, she left her job to raise a family. She discovered CrossFit while looking for an early morning class to fit in her family’s schedule, and she fell in love instantly. She immediately developed the trained coach’s eye to see, cue and correct movement. Her passion for teaching, along with her love of fitness, had influenced her to become a coach. She has even taught CrossFit Kids. “I love how CrossFit gives everyone endless opportunities to improve, learn and grow!” She especially loves how strong and supportive the CrossFit community is. Her only regret is that she didn’t find CrossFit sooner.
