Whitney’s love of movement started early in life. She began ballet at the age of 3 and went on to participate in (and occasionally win) national dance competitions throughout her teens. This passion continued into her college years, and she received her BFA in Dance from the University of Illinois. It was there that she first studied anatomy and kinesiology.
Her first CrossFit experience was in the fall of 2009 when she took a class with CFSBK founder Coach David… and couldn’t walk down stairs properly for three days afterward. Having always been active but never lifted any weight, Whitney spent a good amount of time afraid of an empty barbell and only dreaming of getting a strict Chin-Up. A lot has changed in 10 years! Her goal as a coach is to inspire people to lay a safe, consistent, and sound foundation in their movement and to build a lifestyle of health and strength that is sustainable… for life!
In addition to CrossFit and Short Circuit, Whitney teaches Yoga for Athletes on Saturday mornings. She also loves to travel, hike, and surf!
Whitney holds CrossFit Level 2, CrossFit Gymnastics, Precision Nutrition Level 1, and CYT-200HR Certifications.
