Introducing the Oceanside CrossFit Team
Meet the fitness experts ready to help you achieve your fitness goals and your potential.
My parents made sure to keep my siblings and I out of trouble by keeping us active. I was either participating in ballet, gymnastics or tennis. The benefits of a healthy lifestyle were crammed down my throat but because of it, it has greatly influenced my life choices. As an adult I attended Globo gyms on a regular basis and went on to major in nutrition and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at Cal State Long Beach.
I was introduced to CrossFit in August 2006 by my brother. I was completely impressed by what I could accomplish in such a short time and as a stay-at-home Mom that was life changing and I never looked back. In fact, my brother and I could not stop talking about opening a CrossFit gym in Oceanside. Apparently, we talked too much, so my husband essentially said, “shut up about it or follow your dream”. Obviously, the latter happened, and we started a CrossFit gym in my brother’s garage in May of 2007.
I can’t imagine doing anything else. Supporting and helping people to achieve their goals is a privilege!

I have been involved in multiple types of competitive sports growing up, but my real passion was in skateboarding. After around 15 years my body started to break down from previous injuries and lack of recovery during them. It was at this time I found weightlifting at a normal gym and started trying to fix some problems. After countless times of a friend nagging me to come in and try CrossFit, I finally did. It was exactly what I needed. It was that first day that I knew what I needed to be doing with my life moving forward. Since that day I have educated myself through thousands of hours of learning and coaching. As a coach/owner at Oceanside CrossFit I can say with confidence that you will meet the goals you set here. With our educated coaching staff and amazing community, we have built over the past 13 years in North San Diego County there is no failure, just progress.

Growing up I was just an average athlete in a few sports and in high school. I tried to stay active by doing the usual gym thing, cardio for endurance & weightlifting for strength, in college and after. However, something in life always seemed to put a wrench in the fitness habit and derail it for a while, sometimes a long while. I was again battling the ‘furniture complex’. My health wasn’t good, again, and it was getting worse. I was looking for something that I could incorporate into my life and make it stick for good for a healthier me. A healthier me for me, for my wife and for my growing family.
Enter Oceanside CrossFit in August 2007. It started from a desire tlo make a positive change in my health and mostly because some very good friends had jumped in and started. The result: CrossFit has been an essential part of transforming my life, beyond what I thought or imagined was possible. CrossFit has certainly helped me achieve my physical health goals and improve on them over time. What I didn’t realize was the positive effects CrossFit would bring into my life as a whole. Doing CrossFit has enabled me to excel in other areas of my life like family, faith, career, and community.
I am extremely grateful for the community of encouragement (owners, coaches & athletes) at Oceanside CrossFit. It has been instrumental to me in my quest for getting healthy and staying healthy. I have received so much being a part of this community over the years. I am really excited to have the opportunity to give back and coach where it all started and continues for me. I hope you will join in and get started with us.
