I’ve been hooked ever since!” Selene opened her first CrossFit gym in Santa Cruz, the birthplace of CrossFit, in 2008. She left CrossFit West Santa Cruz after getting a coaching job at Winona State University in Minnesota. A couple years later, she opened the first CrossFit gym in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Coach

I found crossfit in 2010 and immediately fell in love with it. It filled the void that I was missing in playing competitive sports. As a former Division I softball player, I gained a solid foundation and love for Olympic weightlifting. Crossfit helped me get back into this as well as realize new passions like running and competing in Crossfit team competitions. I received my Level 1 Certified Crossfit Trainer in 2014 and thoroughly enjoy coaching. I feel like I am part of a team again and I enjoy that I get to impact athlete’s lives in a positive way as well as push them beyond their limits, mentally and physically. Not only do I continue to learn new things as a coach but I continue to push my own limits and make solid gains as an athlete. One thing that I really love about Crossfit is that no matter who you are or what kind of day you’ve had you will always leave with a sense of accomplishment and there aren’t many things that can give you that feeling. Some wise words I live by given to me from my college coach, “No one ever died of quad burn.”
