Lyndsy Kinghorn

CrossFit Instructor

I grew up an athlete playing just about every sport. Oddly enough, I was introduced to weight lifting as a cheerleader. Fast forward to college, I worked part time at a local gym personal training, teaching group classes and fell in love with not only what fitness could do for me but how I could help so many people through fitness. I joined the Crossfit community in 2014 after being persuaded by a good friend and training partners. My very first class was the most exciting, yet hardest and humbling thing I had ever done. However, I had “drank the koolaide” and was instantly hooked. CrossFit has changed my life. It has changed the way I view my body and as a woman, we all know that is constant struggle. It has shown me, just when you think you aren’t capable of more, you are and you do things you never thought possible. It has grown me physically and mentally but most importantly what CrossFit has done for me is open my eyes to an amazing community of like minded people, all out to improve their health and wellness, while encouraging one another to the be the best they can be.
