In her “first life” Coach Rebecca worked in the networking field for companies such as Lockheed Martin, Qwest and MCI. Unhappy with the instability of the field, she made the leap from geek to jock, and left the tech world to pursue a passion for fitness and nutrition full time. She has over a decade of fitness experience and has been a certified trainer since 2003. She loves, and is quite good at helping people incorporate fun, daily activity and healthful nutrition into their lives. She started CrossFitting in April 2010 and has found her calling, and her true home in the CrossFit community. She used to be a fine art metalsmith (and loves to talk about it), has way too many cats (and loves to talk about it) and has done the Bataan Memorial Death March twice with her amazing CrossFit Optimistic team.
Rebecca holds the following certifications: CrossFit Level I and II, CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Rowing, CrossFit Kettlebell, CrossFit Mobility, ISSA Certified Physical Trainer, ISSA Performance Nutrition Specialist.
