Natalie

CROSSFIT FLOOD TRAINER

Natalie began her Crossfit journey long before stepping foot into a gym. For years she watched her father do home workouts from the main site, trying some variations herself. It wasn’t until 2012, however, that she started training consistently. Soon, she experienced various coaching styles and techniques. Having coaches help her specifically train her weaknesses inspired Natalie to do that for other people. After years of learning from coaches, Natalie got her CF-L1 with the goal to help every athlete realize his/her own barriers and experience the joy of pushing past them. If you ask her, she will say that as a coach there still is nothing more exciting than seeing an athlete learn a new skill or overcome a recent barrier, no matter how small.
