Melissa has spent much of her life playing sports and enjoying the outdoors. Playing collegiate soccer at Lynchburg College and later enjoying coaching and training high school soccer throughout her adult life. Finding Crossfit after an ultra/trail running career allowed Melissa to constantly be challenged without spending hours on the trail each day. Melissa fell in love with the sport very quickly and decided to ger her CF-L1 certificate so she could give back to the Crossfit community. Melissa loves the community Crossfit provides, it is unmatched!
