Coach Spotlight: Melony Kearns!

Melony began CrossFit in 2014 when she was training for her first figure competition.  She was looking for something challenging to improve her physique and overall fitness. Her first workout was 3 rounds for time of 400 meter run, 20 toes to bar, and 10 alternating pistols on each side.

She earned her CF-L1 in 2016 and has been coaching since.

Melony loves CrossFit for the community.  “I’ve met some of my best friends at CrossFit York.” Her favorite movement is the deadlift: “not only does it directly translate to life skills (i.e. picking up heavy shit), it is the most weight I can move so it’s automatically awesome. That being said, it is also my LEAST favorite to clean up.”

After becoming a coach Melony has learned that “you need to be aware of people’s limitations. Some people, such as myself, will push themselves through injuries, which can result in even worse injuries in the long run.”

Since starting CrossFit Melony’s fitness has gotten better and her lifting numbers have improved. She also won the figure competition that prompted her to try CrossFit, and she’s won several powerlifting meets and one Olympic meet in her weight class. 

Come to the evening classes to catch Melony; she’s back after surgery and is looking to be better than ever. 

Programming for this week is up!
