Our Exceptional Coaches

Posted on by

At CrossFit York, everyone is always getting better, even our coaches. In addition to earning a CF-L1, all of our coaches must complete a 6-month in-house mentorship program where participants gain additional knowledge and experience in teaching, demonstrating, correcting and communicating proper movements to our athletes. The mentorship program includes shadowing and receiving feedback from our veteran coaches. Also, our entire coaching staff is encouraged to participate in our ongoing peer-coaching professional development workshops, where coaches hone their own virtuosity and ability to coach more advanced athletes.

What I’ve learned is I enjoy being fit, staying active and seeing results from my coaching.

I love the feeling of teaching someone to ride a snowboard for the first time or hear that a person’s clothes are fitting better because of my training efforts.

I’ve also learned that to maintain a high level of satisfaction in helping someone attain their goals, I need to constantly improve my own. I know that to be an inspiration and to teach others successfully, I need to hold myself to high standards. In the fitness world this was difficult for me, as I’ve always hated the monotony and lack of results from traditional methods of working out. When I initially found CrossFit, I learned that the WODs are tough, unconventional and exhausted me fast. I liked it and wanted more.

I came to CrossFit after 10 years of marathoning. My knees and hips were constantly sore, and though I ran 40 miles a week, I was still unhappy with the way my clothes fit. I was (probably) the typical CrossFit newbie: I wanted to lose weight and I thought fit meant thin. However, after my first WOD, I realized that thin was not going to get me better — I needed muscle, and lots of it.

CrossFit made me love my body in a way I have never been able to: my thighs were no longer ‘fat,’ they were strong. My calves were no longer ‘thick,’ they were powerful. My butt was no longer ‘big,’ it was an awesome powerhouse of squatting amazingness. And parts of my body I never appreciated before, like my arms and my back, became these fantastic machines for pull-ups and hand stand push-ups. Simply put, I grew up hating my body like every good American girl is supposed to do, and CrossFit has allowed me to LOVE my body.

This revelation, along with the desire to share it, drove me to earn my Level 1 Certification. I’ve also competed in Olympic Lifting meets. I love every aspect of CrossFit: the barbell work, the gymnastics, the strongman fun, the sprinting, and the bodyweight movements. And I love the kinds of people that CrossFit draws: they’re interesting, motivated, caring, supportive.
