Courtney Ford

I’m a dreamer and motivator. I always feel like there’s MORE to life. Born and raised in Green Bay, I adventured out to Southern California shortly after college. Being an athletic and outdoor adventurer with a love for sports early on, I played competitive soccer for 10 years, have run several half marathons and have participated in many strenuous hikes through but not limited to, The Grand Canyon, The NaPali Coast and Zion National Park. In 2011, post-full marathon training I didn’t want to run another solid mile for a long time – I completely fell off the radar not wanting to run and workout. I reached out to the CrossFit community unsure of what I was in for. Day one I signed the contract and have been committed ever since. Through being a part of a solid gym in Southern California, the positivity and challenge inspired me to pursue a coaching career to motivate and assist everyday athletes to excel in their own personal achievement, to achieve something they didn’t think was possible.

I CrossFit because...

I love what it helps me accomplish outside the gym. I love that I have the ability to hop on a plane and go hike a strenous climb without having to worry about "getting in shape". The mental toughness it carries through my everyday tasks is so inspiring - everything I do in life I think of it as a WOD and break it up step by step and that's how I get through difficult days.

I Coach because...

I love seeing someone come into the gym discouraged, mentally drained and our staff helping them revive their life in and outside the gym! My favorite is when I hear someone describe how CrossFit has helped them better their relationship, lift a patient in their job or help them shovel the driveway without using their inhaler. CrossFit emphasizes strength and I think that is so empowering, especially for women! I'm stoked to get people to a happy place in their life! I also like wearing flip flops and lulu lemon...and coaching allows me to do that.

My favorite "Cheat Meal" is...

Pizza or French Toast

My secret "Ninja" exercise is...

Hang Cleans and BURPEES

My secret "Sucky" exercise is...

Chest to Bar Pullups
