KATIE BENDER

COACH

I grew up in a very athletic family. My dad was an avid marathon runner and from an early age I loved running. Throughout my childhood, I tried every sport imaginable from ballet to karate to soccer. I played soccer for about 8 years until I hit high school and transferred my efforts to swimming. I excelled quickly and made it to state both in school and on summer league.

By the end of high school I felt burned out and wanted to take a break. I kept up with intramural dodge ball and flag football but had lost the teams that I spent years building and growing up with. It wasn’t until my last year in college that Brian introduced me to CrossFit. I was hesitant at first but quickly fell in love with it. It was everything I needed in my life; community, sport, team, and personal growth.

CrossFit has also helped me become more active in the community pursuing a career in Firefighting. CrossFit has positively changed my life in every way possible.
