Lia-coach bio pic

4 years and 8 months ago, I was walking back to my apartment in Belltown. I passed by a brightly lit, beautiful gym, with athletes lifting barbells, and doing pull ups and wall balls. I knew what this was – it was that thing called CrossFit I’d heard about from my friends who had all quickly become addicted. I wanted in, and I wanted in on THIS gym. I walked in and I was greeted by a coach who told me all about the gym and the amazing owner, Nadia.
I came back a week later and did my first workout, programmed by Nadia: Rowing, Ring Rows, and Wall Balls. I still remember her coaching me and telling me she wanted under a 2:30 split on the row. There are few things that I remember over the course of almost 5 years in that level of detail, but when something changes your life, you don’t forget it. CrossFit Belltown has changed my life. There are no two ways about it. This gym, this community, this program.
I can’t express how great of an impact the gym has had on my life, in part because I may never fully comprehend it. What I can say is that the gym, and all of you, have become so much a part of my life, that saying goodbye is one of the hardest things I have to do in leaving Seattle. I want to thank each of you for shaping my experience for the past 5 years. And I am so grateful to have been a part of your lives in however small a way I could be. Thank you, and know that I will be missing you all across the country. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re ever in NYC.
