Kristi grew up in the vast cornfields of the midwest, where playing at least two sports is a prerequisite. She developed her fiery competitive nature while playing and coaching basketball and volleyball. A love of working with kids, led her to Purdue University where she completed her degree in Elementary Education and spent a few years working in schools. Then, Kristi, her husband, and their adorable chocolate lab hitched up their wagons and headed out west. She quickly discovered CrossFit and fell in love with the community and the sport. “I love seeing people develop confidence, break their personal records, and achieve new skills that were once seemingly impossible.” When not coaching, Kristi enjoys going to pro beach volleyball tournaments, hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, playing the acoustic guitar, binge watching netflix, and exploring the great west with her family.
