Brittany has been working in the fitness industry as a CrossFit Level 1 trainer for about 5 years. She has been full-time in the fitness industry for the last 2.5 years; for the previous 2.5 years, Brittany was still a 9-5er in the social work profession. “I try to keep my social work empathy and insights alive in my fitness career,” she tells us.
In terms of her athletic life, Brittany was a gymnast from ages 7 to 12 and ran track in high school and (briefly) in college. She started pursuing competitive CrossFit about 1.5 years ago with the goal of going to Regionals on a team, and we all know what happened there! She still enjoys training for competition and plans keep that alive as long as she feels good and enjoys it.
Brittany began her full-time fitness career as a CrossFit instructor coaching group classes (the usual stuff: CrossFit, HIIT/bootcamp) She started gymnastics programs at a couple of different gyms around the city and has done gymnastics seminars on her own at several CrossFit affiliates in New York City. Brittany also does remote gymnastics programming and really enjoys it. As for “formal” education, she has her CF-L1, CrossFit Gymnastics certification, Training Think Tank Course Bundle, Functional Range Conditioning and is working on a pre- and postpartum certification.
