When did you start coaching?

I started coaching part time as an assistant Cross Country coach at Melbourne High School in 2013. At the time running was my passion. In 2015 After two years at several CrossFit Boxes I decided to coach privates and small group classes. Since passing my Level 1 in 2016, Level 2 in 2018, and becoming a Certified CrossFit Trainer in 2021 I have helped thousands of people reach their fitness and health goals.


Why Cirque Athletics?

In college I found myself an outsider, as I did not find myself at parties or causing a scene on campus. Instead, I spent the overwhelming majority of my free time at a CrossFit box! Going from running a few miles everyday to learning what felt like a whole new language was exhilarating, and was always a talking point for me at any social occasion.  After college I worked at three other gyms developing and crafting my skills as a trainer. After nearly eight years of hard work I decided to open my own business and create a space I wanted to be in everyday.  Believe me when I say I have poured my soul and dedication into making CrossFit Cirque what it is today.


What is your Favorite Apparatus?

The gymnastic rings are my favorite apparatus. The exact time and place where rings first appeared is unknown but it is widely accepted that they evolved from a trapeze-like device. Individuals who work the rings are in possession of an upper body strength that finds no equal in weightlifting or other calisthenics. The ringman, pound for pound, presents more upper body strength, along more lines of action, than any other athlete on the planet!


What is your Favorite Named Workout?

"Fight Gone Bad" 

3 Rounds For Total Reps:

1:00 Wall Ball Shots  (20/14) 10'/9'

Whichever restaurant Katie wants to go to. I typically ask her to order two entrees and we split them so she can taste the best of two  meals!
