About Crista

As a competitive athlete growing up and into my college years I have always had a love for fitness. I decided to make it part of my career and obtained my B.S. in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science. After training for several years I realized that I love helping people reach their physical/mental goals in the gym and in life! During the end of my running season in college a friend told me about CrossFit, thinking that I would like it. I checked it out online, tried a few workouts and was hooked. The only gym that was doing CrossFit in San Francisco at the time was Kelly Starrett’s San Francisco CrossFit. It took me a couple of days to build up my courage to go try a class, but it was the best decision I ever made. Within 6 months I was CrossFit Certified and learning from some of the best trainers in CrossFit. After training individuals for a couple of years, my husband and I started holding classes in November of 2009 in a “Globo gym”.

I love the community of CrossFit and the challenge it brings daily. I feel that CrossFit and healthy eating habits gives people the opportunity to thrive in life. I recommend CrossFit to EVERYONE!
