In 2014 Crystie discovered CrossFit after finally building up the nerve to walk in to her local box for an intro session with a coach. With the goal of reducing imbalances caused by a lifelong love of competitive swimming she found that and more, including significant performance improvements, after just a few months of crossfit workouts. Having coached and competed with U.S. Masters Swimming for the past 10 years she decided to expand her knowledge of CrossFit and started coaching in 2020.
Coaching quickly expanded into becoming a co-manager and then a full time general manager of the facility. When Crystie moved to Colorado in January of 2023 it was a sad transition to leave behind her New Hampshire gym community. Finding CrossFit Longmont shortly after arriving was exactly what she was looking for to rebuild a fit family community. When she is not at the box, or the pool, Crystie enjoys mountain biking and trail running and has occasionally combined them with swimming to compete in off-road triathlon.
