Coach Annie began her CrossFit/Functional Fitness journey back in August of 2011 at Mapleton High School while coaching softball. Wanting to model strength, determination, and grit for her athletes she began working out with them. Coach Annie found a love for CrossFit/Functional Fitness that has only grown stronger since she began with her own athletes. She loves the community atmosphere and getting to know all the members and began coaching CrossFire in June of 2020. Annie lives in Norwalk with her husband, AJ and their 2 kids, Carrollee and Daniel. When not in the gym, Coach Annie is a high school math teacher and enjoys playing slow pitch softball and spending time with her family and friends.
