Vanessa is a proud mother of 2 little humans. CrossFit sparked Vanessa’s interest after she had her son in 2010. She has always been active and was searching for something other than a Mommy Boot Camp to regain her fitness back.
The mental and physical challenge from CrossFit immediately had her hooked. She found that it was a unique outlet for her to keep her competitive hunger and continue to learn about her body awareness. She quickly fell in love with the weightlifting side of this sport.
Vanessa began coaching CrossFit in Key West in 2013 and was the very first coach in the Keys. Her drive for coaching comes from her passion to connect with athletes on a human level and have an opportunity to have a positive impact in their everyday lives.
Vanessa believes in the mental fitness before the physical. Her strengths are finding what could be blocking the athlete from performing and building confidence from there. Confidence is key. Her motto is “You better own IT or IT will own YOU.”
