Biography

  • CrossFit Level 1
  • CrossFit Kids
  • CPR, AED, First Aid Certified

Growing up Kathryn did gymnastics from age three – fourteen, until she moved to a town in Alaska that did not have a gymnastics gym. Those skills are slowly coming back as she continues on her CrossFit journey! She has always been active, whether through horseback riding, playing ultimate frisbee, swing and ballroom dance (way more tiring than people think!), and playing with her younger brothers.

Kathryn heard about CrossFit in Alaska but did not have a box near her until moving to Sierra Vista. Kathryn’s mom gave CrossFit a try so to meet people and go to the gym regularly. After hearing her mom talk about it for a month, Kathryn wanted to give it a try. One month and she was hooked!

She has always loved learning new things, and then teaching them to other people. After about a year of CrossFit she wanted to take the Level 1 course, and hopefully coach. When the course was going to be held in Tucson she knew she had to go! She enjoys getting to know people, learning their stories, and helping them on their fitness journey!
