Manager, Assistant Head Coach, Personal Trainer
Brittany is the manager, assistant head coach, and personal trainer at ACR. She began her coaching journey in 2016 as a coach at CrossFit Burke in Virginia, but her passion for fitness began long before that. She enjoyed 15 years of competitive soccer through high school and became interested in rehabilitation and injury prevention during college. She graduated from George Mason University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology, and became a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant in 2020. She has worked with a variety of populations, to include orthopedic, geriatric, and neurological patients, in both hospital and private practice settings, and has extensive experience developing workout programs for general rehab, balance, coordination, agility, and gait training.
Because of her passion for fitness, she seeks knowledge and professional development daily. She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach, and holds both a CF-L1 and CrossFit Kids Certificate. Her ultimate goal is to provide an environment where athletes of all ability levels can become the healthiest version of themselves.
Brianne began working in the fitness industry in 1997 after becoming a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor while attending Florida State University. She has taught numerous fitness classes including Spinning, Body Pump, step, and yoga. As a personal trainer, Brianne has worked with many people including doctors, executives, stay-at-home moms, fitness competitors, and even a Nascar pit crew (in the same building that ACR currently occupies). In 2004, she went to work full time as a high school math teacher, but continued to teach group fitness classes during her afternoons, evenings, and summers.
In 2010, Brianne was growing bored with her personal fitness routine and was invited by a couple of friends to attend a CrossFit class. She began incorporating CrossFit into her regular fitness routine and was hooked after seeing a dramatic increase in lean muscle mass. Brianne has coached high school weightlifting for five years and competed and trained with an all women's power-lifting team for three years. She currently holds a CF-L1 and CF-L2.
One of Brianne’s passions is nutrition. She loves to cook and bake and loves to talk with people about ways they can become more healthy and thrive by the foods they eat. She also really enjoys the StrongFit classes at ACR. Brianne enjoys helping people take control of their health by moving more, lifting heavy things, and eating well.
Katrina's CrossFit journey started in 2013, when a friend that she would run the Hathaway bridge with convinced her that CrossFit wasn’t just for people that are already in shape. From a young age, Katrina was always hesitant to participate in sports or physical activity due to having problems with her hips, leading to several surgeries as a child. These hip limitations seemed to be the perfect excuse to avoid CrossFit at first, but after trying a few classes she was hooked and wanted to see what she was capable of doing. Her experiences with CF and learning of several modified options for her hip limitations brought about her passion for coaching and helping people achieve their fitness goals, even when they have a physical limitation or disability. Katrina received her CF-L1 in January of 2017 while she was 3 months pregnant with her first child. Later that year, Katrina joined ACR and fell in love with the box and its family focus.
