Katie started CrossFit in July of 2013 at CrossFit PAX and was immediately drawn to the challenging nature as well as the sense of community and comradery that CrossFit offers. Prior to starting CrossFit, Katie coached competitive gymnastics for ten years and found it to be a truly rewarding experience as it fulfilled her desire to help others achieve goals. Late in 2014 Katie realized how much she missed coaching so she decided to get her CrossFit Level 1 trainer certification and put her years of coaching experience to use at CrossFit PAX. Katie’s favorite aspect of coaching CrossFit is being able to best suit the needs to accommodate each individual athlete to ensure they are getting the most out of their CrossFit experience.

Favorite WOD: All of them, even death by burpees

Favorite Food: Wings and Beer

Hobbies: Spending time with family and friends, watching sports, being anywhere warm and sunny and sleeping

What motivates Katie? Her competitive nature and desire to better not only other athletes, but also push herself to be the best athlete possible.
