Welcoming Guest Coaches to CFSBK
By David Osorio
As you may have heard, Coaches Whitney and Brett are heading out with Jenna J., Kristin H., Katie M., and Sean M. to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc. This is a 9 day, 110 mile hike that circumnavigates Mont Blanc while traveling through Switzerland, Italy, and France. After that Whitney and Brett will be going to San Sebastian, Spain for four days to enjoy the food, the beach, and some surfing after the long trek. Their final stop is a small fishing village in Sweden called Viken where former CFSBK members Mo A. and Kat S. moved a few months ago. They’ll be back to coaching in September!
So we want to give you all a heads up about some guest coaches you may see at CFSBK in August. To help with coverage, we’re bringing in three all-star coaches from outside of our training staff to fill in while they’re gone. Check out the short bios below and look forward to seeing them in upcoming classes!
Morit has been working out in a gym since she was 14 years old. She graduated from SUNY Cortland with a BS in Exercise Science and Kinesiology and has been a personal trainer since then. It has been about 11 years now, which is hard to believe. Since than, I have been a personal trainer at Equinox and now am off running my own show. She’s very excited to be helping out at CrossFit South Brooklyn!
Lauren has been coaching individuals of wide ranging ages and experience since 2012. She trains private clients around Brooklyn and coaches the parent-baby fitness class, Diapers & Dumbbells, at CFSBK.
Keith Van Wickler
Growing up as an athlete in Oceanside on Long Island, Keith got an early start in coaching helping out with local youth sports and camps. He began focusing on fitness while training for rugby with powerlifting and eventually used a methodology similar to CrossFit before heading to Australia for a season. After a few injuries, Keith began CrossFit officially in 2010 while pursuing his Masters degree in Physical Education and began coaching at CrossFit Buffalo in 2011.
