Chelsea came to CrossFit Eminence in 2021, and immediately blew us away with her fitness knowledge and mad skills! We quickly found out that she was not only hard-working and incredibly talented, but she was extremely humble, friendly, and inclusive. She was a perfect fit at CrossFit Eminence, and we are so lucky to have her part as of our community. Keep reading to hear the story of Coach Chelsea's journey, and her endless CrossFit goals...
An active lifestyle
I was always interested in staying active. I played a variety of sports my entire life - and tried a little of everything including track, crew, wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading, softball, basketball, kickboxing, and soccer. You name it, I've tried it!! In fact, all the activities that I was in, tended to overlap until I graduated from college.
I continued to play rugby and utilized a "typical" gym setting to try and stay fit. However, I quickly found that when I went to the gym, I didn't have a good plan - and never really enjoyed working out by myself. In 2014, while looking to fill the time with something else that would keep me fit between the rugby off season, I found CrossFit. CrossFit added both the competitive aspect that I was craving, as well as the community. Then the 2015 CrossFit Open came, and I've been hooked ever since!
CrossFit goals and motivation
With CrossFit there’s always new goals, heavier weights, and more difficult movements to achieve, and always with the whole community supporting you on your journey. CrossFit to me, means no more boring days at a gym - instead I get an hour of working on new skills, with great people. There are just so many things I want to practice and get better at, and I love the feeling of achieving those little "wins" after putting in all the hard work. As I continue to coach and train at CrossFit Eminence, my goal is to generally lift all the weights, and perhaps make it to quarterfinals next year!
Come and crush your goals with Coach Chelsea! She typically coaches CrossFit classes with us on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm, and Friday's at 5:15 am. And all of the rest of the days you will find her working out with the community, at CrossFit Eminence. Come join us and cheer her on!
