“Fit people and strong communities can change the world” - Coach Glassman

  • CrossFit Level 1
  • CrossFit Kids

Kirsten discovered CrossFit alongside Rob in 2009, quickly changing her mundane gym routine for CrossFit main site WoDs and never looked back. She became a CrossFit Level 1 trainer in November 2012 and CrossFit Kids Trainer in September 2015. She works as a full time trainer at CrossFit Aberdeen.

Kirsten's favourite part about coaching is the buzz when she sees everyone cheering each other on to finish their workouts. “Something special is going on here – people pushing beyond mental and physical barriers to achieve things they never thought they were capable of, because of the surrounding support.”

Kirsten has also taken to the competition floor, competing in partner and team competitions throughout 2014 and 2015. I'm at my happiest when I'm pushing myself to the limits in team events, I love the spirit and drive that comes from training with others and hope to continue competing into 2016.

“Growing the community is at the heart of what we do. CrossFit founder Greg Glassman said that "fit people and strong communities can change the world" and that's what we strive to contribute towards every day at CFA!”
