Meet Your Coaches – Kate and Willie
In today’s episode of our team expansion: Kate and Willie! Since they’re married they came as a package so we got a pretty good deal on them… Joking aside, Kate and Willie have been pivotal members in the CFE community for years and we’re so excited to have them make the transition to coach in order to share their experiences with you all.
Kate and Willie both moved to the Epping area a few years back without knowing many people around. CFE quickly became a home away from home as they both integrated into the group, made fast friends and even faster progress. Kate is kind, hard working and is always making sure she’s challenging herself as much as possible while always moving well at the same time. Willie will lay it all out there and leave nothing on the floor after a workout. He’s constantly encouraging those around him to do better through his example of hard work and effort. The best way to lead is from the front, which is why we’re stoked to have these two as part of the team and working with you all on your fitness goals! Read on to learn some things about them you may not already know…..
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT COACHING IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
In a way, I feel like I am giving back to the CFE community. When I joined CFE, I was treated with kindness, motivation, and felt like I knew the members for years. I am looking forward to creating that same environment for new and current members like the coaches did for me when I joined.
WHAT IS YOUR ATHLETIC BACKGROUND?
HOW DID YOU END UP A CROSSFIT COACH?
By falling in love with the community and wanting to encourage everyone that anyone, at any fitness level, is capable of doing CrossFit.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF YOUR JOURNEY INTO CROSSFIT SO FAR?
Having confidence in my ability. Most people won’t find this as a surprise lol. CF has taught me that I am more capable than I think I am.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO CFE?
I wanted to try something different and meet new people. I was sick of the traditional gym. I looked into CFE for a couple of years but was too scared to try. Given my sports background, I never touched a barbell before. Willie and I had been living in the area for almost 5 years and still didn’t really know anyone. After finally convincing Willie to try CFE with me (in the form of paying for his membership…), we did our free session and were instantly hooked.
WHAT GOALS DO YOU HAVE ON YOUR HORIZON?
I will be completing my degree in Business at the beginning of next year and then will be furthering my education in nutrition!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE?
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”
IF YOU HAD TO EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Definitely pizza. Team pineapple on pizza!
YOU HAVE TO SING KARAOKE, WHAT SONG DO YOU PICK?
“Shoop” by Salt-N-Pepa!
WHAT IS THE MOST EMBARRASSING FASHION TREND YOU USE TO ROCK?
I wore a pink zebra print dress to my senior prom….. I was sure to hide all evidence of this from my social media before disclosing this information.
