Teagan first found CrossFit in 2015, and have been hooked since day one. Like most people, she saw the immediate health benefits of CrossFit. However, it’s the community that a CrossFit box makes, that keeps her coming back. As a competitive figure skater, Teagan was always physically fit. However, it wasn’t until she experienced the sport of CrossFit that she realized that fitness has another level.
Currently, Teagan is studying to become at nurse at Red Deer College. Outside the gym, Teagan loves just being active! She loves hiking, kayaking, biking…basically anything that gets you outside and moving. Teagan is a NCCP Level One Figure Skating Coach. This winter will mark her eight year of coaching
In 2018 Teagan truly drank the “Crossfit Kool-Aid” and completed her level one certification. “One of the most gratifying things as a coach is watching athletes go beyond what they perceived as their limitations. Whether it’s mastering a new skill like handstand pushups, setting a PR on a lift, or just getting through a workout they once dreaded; I love that as a coach I have the opportunity to be a part of people’s “I’ve got this” moments. I am extremely excited to be coaching classes at Crossfit Grande Prairie!”
