Emily earned her Masters in Health Promotion Management from Marymount University in 2010, and sees CrossFit as a magic bullet of a health promotion program for people of all abilities and backgrounds. Swirl CrossFit with the right dose of athletic mentality and the craft of coaching, and somehow Emily fell in to her dream job.
Emily was introduced to her first CrossFit-like metcon with a doozy of a 9-minute workout in 2010 and began coaching in late 2011. Growing up, Emily looked forward to gymnastics practice, weekend soccer games, and watching strongman competitions. After co-captaining her collegiate soccer team at James Madison University, and earning All-American Strength and Conditioning honors in her senior year, she was searching for a new active outlet to fill the void. She has found that CrossFit elicits the same excitement, and much more. She is thrilled to be able to share her joy of movement, help challenge you to discover your own inner beastly athlete, and together prove that anybody and any body can be powerful, strong, and confident.
