Amy is a coach at Yucaipa CrossFit and one of our founding partners.

I’ve always loved playing sports. I played soccer in high school, I ran high school Cross Country and ran Track and Field in high school and college. I love being active outdoors! Road and mountain bike riding, running and swimming are some of my favorite things to do!

I always had a desire to share my love of health and fitness with people and continue to improve my own fitness, so I became of Certified Personal Trainer in 2003 and worked in a gym after college. When I started having kids, I opened my own Personal Training Business and trained singles, mini groups and large groups in my garage, at parks, even at the local pool! I always had a blast training people, especially groups. It’s always fun to sweat together and encourage each other!

I was introduced to CrossFit in 2008, and I fell in love with every gasping breath. I haven’t stopped CrossFitting since! My favorite thing about CrossFit is how it is for everyone, it doesn’t matter what level of fitness you are, the workout can be scaled for you. I love how CrossFit has made me move better. My life outside of CrossFit is healthier because of what we do inside the box. I love the community of CrossFit. At Yucaipa CrossFit, we have a group of the most encouraging people and we cheer for everyone and celebrate everything from someone’s first pull-up, to someone finishing a WOD for the first time!

I love being a part of people’s lives and encouraging them along their road of better health. I’m so lucky to be a coach at Yucaipa CrossFit!!

Amy has her Level 1 Certificate.

Deciding to do CrossFit was one of the best decision of my life. Not just because it has gotten me into the best shape of my life, but because of the people that I have become so close with in the process.

THE OPEN 2015

Last year the thought never crossed my mind to sign up for the CrossFit Open. Last year the idea would have made me laugh out loud. But that was last year. This year my son Brock said to me, “You’re signing up for the Open, right?” This year I’m thinking it might not be such a ridiculous notion after all.
