Coach Kelsey has always had a passion for working with kids. You can see it in her as a mother to her two boys and as she is out and about in our community. As a former swimmer and swim coach, she has now found her place as a coach for the Crusher Kids and Crusher Teens programs.
Kelsey was a swimmer at the University of Minnesota where she was a NCAA All-American and a Big Ten Champion. Before retiring from swimming, she competed at the 2000 US Olympic Team Trials. After her swimming days, Kelsey began her coaching journey with kids in the pool. She worked with children ages 5 years thru high-school. Swim coaching helped her learn how to teach movement technique and to inspire kids to have fun and strive to improve their performance.
Kelsey loves what Crossfit has to offer to all different age groups but especially loves knowing the strong foundation it builds for kids. At an early age, it teaches kids to enjoy being active for the rest of their lives and can also enhance athletic performance as they mature.
