Fiona started in CrossFit in 2009 when not many people had heard about it. She appreciates the different challenges/exercises that CrossFit throws at her with a huge focus on form and technique in order to sustain long term results in the gym and in life. She played all the sports in HS but mainly Varsity Basketball while also playing college club soccer. Her coach in basketball made a huge impact in her life with how he coached, it was not just about the game but he related it to life as well. She felt so empowered and encouraged every time she was out on the court or sitting on the bench. His coaching had always stuck with her and it led her to something she aspires to do... COACH! When the opportunity to be part of the Gym Rats coaching team arose it was a given for her to say YES! Fiona also helps with the youth at her church further solidifying her role in the Gym Rats program. "They are our future, what we tell/sell/show them sticks and they will carry that on. When I coach first and foremost there is a TON of fun along with some discomfort, sweat, and life lessons."
