There are people that join the gym that you just know are going to take on a leadership role. Val was one of those people. She’s 5’2″ in height with a 6”5 personality. As a retired Navy Veteran she is no stranger to being in a leadership position. She’s “stern but fair” as we like to say.
Val’s CrossFit journey started like many others. She was a runner and a competitive one at that. After years of running and becoming a little burned out on that she was looking for change. She strolled into our CrossFit gym years ago and never left! After retiring from the Navy Val and her family started spending a few weeks a year in The Florida Keys and attending a gym down there. Long story short she came back after one of her trips and was a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and starting covering classes here immediately. When the idea for a CrossFit Kids Program came up she jumped at the opportunity and became a Brand X Certified Coach. Brand X is the most in depth course when it comes to training children in the CrossFit Methodology.
When Val isn’t living the good life down in the Keys you can find her here teaching classes, taking a classes, or working on improving her own CrossFit skills.
