At CrossFit South Bay, we utilize functional movements that make you stronger for your every day life inside AND outside of the gym, while creating different workouts every day to keep things exciting. The high intensity nature of CrossFit workouts is what produces the most ideal response for your body – both for your appearance and performance. Our creative and fun programming pulls the best of the best from all fields: endurance, speed training, kettlebells, gymnastics, Olympic and power weightlifting, boxing, etc!
Since 2008, our classes have provided an encouraging, non-intimidating vibe that makes every member feel like they are part of our fitness family. Everything at CrossFit can be scaled to your current fitness level – so in a typical class you will see soccer moms next to Air Force members next to high school students. Every person works together to achieve the same goal: constantly improving his or her fitness level. As a gym, we also plan community service outings, nutrition challenges and family social events.
Our experienced coaching staff doesn’t just guide our members through workouts – they educate on injury prevention, mobility & flexibility, nutrition and lead the classes through playful group warmups and cool downs. CrossFit South Bay embraces a holistic approach to fitness and lifestyle – it’s a one stop shop for your workouts, physical therapy & body maintenance, goal setting and, of course, your social scene.
During my 15 year career as a professional horse trainer and riding instructor, I coached hundreds of riders of all ages, levels and abilities, from the local to the national and world championship level. After spending so many years specializing in the all-around competitive equestrian athlete, making the change over to coaching Crossfit athletes came naturally.
When I became pregnant with my daughter Skylar in 2010, I continued to Crossfit and modified as needed throughout my pregnancy. With the help of crossfitmom.com and lots of research in my spare time, I began mentoring our pregnant athletes and developing modifications to our WODs designed especially for them.
I especially enjoy coaching those just starting out in Crossfit, working with our Crossfit Kids program, and participating in Crossfit competitions.
I’ve had the pleasure of acting alongside Tommy Lee Jones, Richard Gere, Cate Blanchette, Evan Rachel Wood, Kate Hudson and many other amazingly talented actors!”
