Bridget has been coaching in some capacity since 2008 when she began coaching softball at the age of 18. She won a state title as a softball coach. Bridget is also an experienced weight room coach and began coaching CrossFit in 2017. Before moving to Atlanta, she opened her own non-for profit CrossFit Box (CrossFit Tiger Cage) at the high school where she taught.
You can usually find Bridget coaching on Saturday mornings where she loves taking big groups through our Workout of the Day and threatening to use her “teacher voice” to get athletes to listen.
“I grew up playing all the sports, in high school I played softball, basketball, and ran cross county. I played softball at Indiana University. After that I really didn’t know what to do with myself, I missed working out but couldn’t find the right thing. I started CrossFit because my brother told me I would love it, and one of my college teammates had opened her own box (CrossFit 317) and everything she posted on Facebook about it looked awesome. I did my first workout in August of 2013 and haven’t looked back since!”
Why I love coaching:
“What I love most about coaching is the people! As coaches we have unique relationship with our athletes, and with CrossFit we get to do this during so many different stages of a person’s life. I really like the goal setting aspect of CrossFit, instead of focusing on body image, or numbers on the scale, we get to help athletes set goals that celebrate what their bodies are capable of, and somewhere along the way get better at life. I love that final bit of a workout where I can really push an athlete to leave it all out there, and when they finally catch their breath to join in on their feeling of accomplishment. Being a positive force in another person’s life is super fulfilling, so multiply that times all our awesome members and it’s easy to see why this job is the best. Also, let’s be honest, I’m here for some high fives.”
