About Emily

I grew up in Eden Prairie with my parents and my older sister, Ashley. I have a nephew, Mason, and a dog nephew, Tucker 🙂 My hobbies include: being active (Crossfit, biking, golf, soccer, basketball, hiking), playing board games or doing puzzles, and hanging out with friends and family.

Athletic Background

I was in dance at a young age but decided tutus were not my thing! I also dabbled in track for a bit but had a hard time finding running to be “fun”. I settled in on playing soccer and basketball for most of my life. I coach 7th & 8th-grade basketball and occasionally play soccer when I can. 

Finding CrossFit

After playing sports all my life, I had a really hard time finding a place to workout that kept my interest. I did not like working out by myself so going to a regular gym was not enjoyable and I had a hard time finding the motivation. A friend and I were invited to come to a SISU-X class on the most humid day! I thought I was going to die but I LOVED it! I was so proud of myself for finishing the workout and the class was so motivating that I wanted to come back for more! 

Why I Coach

I love coaching because I love being able to support others and push them to be the best version of themselves. As a teacher, I really enjoy working with kids and seeing the smile on their face when they are able to accomplish their goals. I feel like this translates to coaching when I see someone achieve their goals in the gym and I am just as happy as they are! I am excited to share my love of Crossfit with others!
