Being active my whole life has not just been a hobby, it became a big part of my identity at a young age. Playing lacrosse and soccer for 14 years, and boxing for 2, I was always looking for a training program to help me gain a competitive edge in sports. I participated in most conventional gym workouts but never found bodybuilding to give me real functional carryover into my sports and life. It was 2008 when I stumbled into a few people swinging and carrying KB's at my high school gym in Watertown New York. My curiosity guided me toward my first experience with CrossFit.


As I was introduced, I had the same notion as many others do their first time, "I should be able to do this pretty easily". After a humbling experience, I realized not only how effective this was, but how much room I had to grow in this newfound program called "CrossFit". 


Fast forward 15 years and I have seen the CrossFit movement not only deliver me the best fitness of my life, but I have seen it change hundreds of lives as well. Ranging from children as young as 5, to adults over 80 years old. Ranging from Division 1 athletes to kids and adults with physical and mental limitations. This program is truly for everyone if they are willing to be coached and work hard.


Having the opportunity to coach group classes, train one-on-one, and even coach clients remotely for 9 years, I have seen the changes a proper program can make in someone's life...physically, mentally and emotionally.


Many fitness programs come and go, but CrossFit is here to stay. Whether you are someone who has never worked out in your life or someone aspiring to see what your body is truly capable of, CrossFit is for you. I believe at CrossFit Loup we can provide everyone with an experience that will motivate and inspire each person to become the healthiest version of themselves.

I became obsessed with CrossFit the first time I saw people doing what I was told was a WOD (Workout of the Day). They were working extremely hard, but it looked like they were having so much fun!

Prior to that day, I would have defined myself as a runner; I ran two marathons per year and a number of local 5K, 10K and half-marathons in-between. In 2013, my friends and I decided to run thirteen half-marathons (13.1 miles) – just because we could. I considered myself very fit and I was...for a runner.

My very first WOD was in Fall of 2011 and I was hooked. There was not a single movement that I was good at and that just made me want to learn more. I scaled everything, and everyone still cheered. It was an absolute blast! One of my favorite things about CrossFit is the incredible community that I have experienced – it is one of the things that has kept me participating in CrossFit, no matter where I am.

I began working one-on-one with Coach Pat in Spring of 2015 and over time I got better. For the past three years, I have qualified for the CrossFit Age Group

Quarterfinals. I’ve always been competitive, and as a “Masters” athlete also very interested in the “functional fitness” component of the training. Valuing fitness as we age allows us to maintain our independence and that is extremely important to me.

12 years after my first WOD, I decided to take the next step and obtain more formal knowledge of the CrossFit philosophy and methodology and to become a Level 1 Certified CrossFit Coach. I want to share my knowledge with others like me, who want to take that first step towards more varied workouts, learning new skills, and towards being challenged every step of the way.

Introducing CrossFit Loup's newest coach, Coach Holly. Holly not only loves movement and loves moving her body, but she loves to learn about movement and helping others find the joy in movement too.

Competing in different sports and experiencing how my body adapts differently to each of her passions was a driving force in her fitness journey. She grew up playing soccer, downhill skiing, bowling, roller skating, ice skating and doing karate. In high school she began jujitsu, taekwondo, tai chi, snowboarding and ballroom dance. Holly took weight lifting, gymnastics, judo, ROTC, and Irish dance courses in college, as well as lessons in road biking, mountain biking, running and swimming in prep for sprint triathlons.


But she didn't stop there, she I've also taken on rock climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, qi gong, barre, mat pilates, cross country skiing and yoga. Along the way, she began personal training in 2014. Working with track and field, football, hockey, swimming and volleyball teams at SUNY Brockport. She coached group exercise at LA Fitness, Apex, Fitbody Boot Camp, Crunch, and the YMCA. All while enjoying the coaching life for spin, HIIT, boot camp, mobility, and aquatic exercise.


Holly felt the call to be a student again and learn another new sport in 2022. It was then that she landed on CrossFit. She did our foundations class with our very own Coach Lauren and participated in her first WOD not shortly after.


For Holly, CrossFit essentially combines everything she has ever trained for in one crazy, unpredictable and challenging fitness competition. CrossFit doesn’t train just one aspect of fitness at the expense of others, it is about being as broadly fit as you can be and being ready for anything…that is Coach Hollly's dream for you too!
