    I started coaching CrossFit in 2016 but developed my teaching/coaching philosophy during my many years of elementary school teaching and martial arts instruction. I am fascinated with the technical side of movement and share my own understand with athletes in a way that makes sense to them. Being able to use an individual athlete’s current understanding and relating that to improving or learning new concepts is the key. Build upon what they already know really helps the process.

    Olivia has had an interest in movement all her life. This has serviced as a body conditioner, athletic practice, and a mental health cleanser. It was only until an injury that kept her from pursuing those essential movement needs, that it opened her to a world of helping others in the same dire situations. Now, functional and pain free movement for all is the focus.

    Her movement repertoire ranges from dance, competition cheerleading, to dabbling in group fitness and yoga. In 2013, her yoga path began to mature as she apprenticed teaching Ashtanga in New Zealand which brought a wealth of learning in the way of observation, mindfulness practice, and the concept of moving with the breath. In 2018 she earned a Mental Health First Aid certificate to supplement her understanding of mindfulness and awareness around this space.

    This path continued as she began teaching yoga to CrossFit athletes and learned a new love of strength training, bringing balance to her flexibility practice. This in turn led to her acquiring her CrossFit Level I.

    At the end of 2019 Olivia and her family moved back to Florida where she began pursuing a career path as a CrossFit Coach and a personal trainer in functional movement.

    When she’s not exercising, Olivia enjoys learning, drinking a strong cup of coffee, nature walks and playing at the beach with her son.
