October’s Coach Highlight is Kelly!


Kelly is originally a Florida girl, but has been in Charlotte over 5 years now!  Her twin brother (no, they’re not identical 😉 ) talked her into trying out CrossFit & the rest is history!  Kelly trained at another gym for about 2 years before meeting Warren & discovering CFP!


Kelly is an awesome coach, ready to give feedback on how an athlete’s moving, cheering on the class during a grueling WOD and helping people realize they’re stronger than they think!  Get to know Kelly a little better below…

Kelly’s Coach Profile

1.  Tell us a little about yourself.  I was imported to Charlotte from Florida in Spring 2010. I work in Sales with Siemens Energy. I love making new friends, eating good food, and traveling.

2.  How did you get into CrossFit & why do you like coaching?  My twin bro started it years ago and I followed suit. Did my first intro class in Fall 2011 and was immediately hooked.  I love the community, variety and competition aspects. I had never touched a barbell prior to starting Crossfit and was so intimidated. Which leads to why I like coaching: I enjoy making people feel comfortable and strong and talented, because all of our athletes are superstars.

3.  What is your favorite CF exercise?  Least favorite?  Favorite: anything with a barbell. Back squats, cleans and thrusters. Least: wallballs. When you’re 5’2″, they essentially become spicy weighted jump squats for time.

4.  What would you tell someone considering trying CFP?  Dooooooo ittttt! You’ll make lifelong friends, build a strong body and mind, and have an absolute blast while you’re at it.
