Courtney is a crossfit and grid league athlete and coaches at San Francisco crossfit.
With an extensive background in gymnastics, a sport she competed in from the time she learned to walk until college. Courtney’s years of dedication paid off with an athletic scholarship to UCLA, where she went on to win the Pac 10 championship and a team NCAA championship.
After retiring from the sport she had dedicated her early life to, Courtney struggled for a few years to find something to challenge her both mentally and physically the way gymnastics had, until she discovered crossfit. It quickly became clear that S Crossfit was the sport for her, and not just because it was somewhere that she could do spontaneous handstands without people looking at her funny. More importantly, crossfit allowed her to challenge her movement abilities and competitive drive, while also improving her health and self confidence.
As a crossfit athlete for only three years she has qualified to crossfit regionals all three years and has placed as high as 6th place. More recently she joined the San Francisco Fire NPGL team where she is known as one of the best body-weight specialists in the sport. Her talents led her to be named to the first ever All-Grid team in 2014.
As a coach Courtney has 10 years of experience coaching all types of people, from children learning how to walk across a balance beam, to athletes on the path to becoming professionals. As a former gymnast she brings a well-ingrained understanding and awareness of body mechanics, which makes her a natural at coaching not only gymnastics movements but all elements of crossfit. She is a valuable resource for crossfitters that specifically want to improve their gymnastics skills, but also has much to offer those looking to boost their general fitness. More broadly, Courtney wants to help all individuals realize their potential to move better and feel better doing so.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her dogs, reading, trying out new restaurants, and eating ice cream!
