Kelly - CrossFit
Kelly discovered Crossfit through sport specific training for ultimate frisbee. Yes, frisbee! It’s a grueling endurance sport that she's competed in at the highest level for the last 12 years. She fell in love with Crossfit from the first 3,2,1 GO because of the intensity, challenge and community. Recently, her passion for coaching and movement lead her to also become a Physical Therapist Assistant to continue helping others with their athletic longevity in clinical settings.
She has worked at and helped start many gyms, competed at the Regionals level of Crossfit for 3 years and earned 5 World Championships for the USA in ultimate frisbee. She also coaches high school and college level teams in ultimate frisbee. Besides coaching, Kelly currently works as a PTA at Renew Physical Therapy, a block from the gym!
"Plain and simple, Crossfit has changed me as a person. It has taught me to overcome any obstacle or excuse in my way. It has allowed me to accomplish things I never dreamed possible. It has introduced so many amazing people into my life and has always reminded me of how important community is. Coaching, in any setting, is a huge passion of mine. Like Carl Paoli says, I truly want athletes to ‘move like you care’."
