Erin Wolfe, Trainer
Beginner Class, Rx Class, Em’s Fitcamp
Coming from a background in marathon running, I never considered weightlifting, gymnastics, or anything that had to do with CrossFit. However, after I broke my fifth bone due to the stress running had on my body, my doctor told me it was time to find a new sport.
I stumbled into NewCov over four years ago and have been calling this my home ever since. Although I spent some time away living in Los Angeles, every time I made it back home I would stop in to see my NewCov family. This community is the most welcoming and supportive group of athletes I’ve ever known.
While in LA, I began to really work on my skills in order to take my fitness to the next level. I decided I wanted to pursue coaching, and obtained my CrossFit L-1 certification in 2016. From there I coached all over Los Angeles, while simultaneously training to become a better athlete. I was so happy to have the opportunity to coach at NewCov when I returned back to Ohio.
Although I absolutely love teaching the various skills, techniques, lifts, etc. that CrossFit offers; my most favorite part of it all is the athletes. Watching a beginner who struggles to lift the barbell transform over time into an athlete who competes in local competitions, the Open, and even onto Regionals is unbelievably rewarding. I love to think about the first coaches that I had at NewCov (Hi Emily and Alicia) and how much they shaped my life without them maybe even knowing it. I can only hope that someday I am able to do the same for someone else.
When I am not training or coaching, I am working at UC in the College of Medicine, or am leading worship on Sundays at Rivers Crossing Community Church in Mason, OH.
I also might be eating, I eat a lot.
Can’t wait to meet you at NewCov!
