Coach HorseChick

Andrea has been a member of CrossFit Spokane Valley since July of 2010. She began her CrossFit journey after selling her last horse and leaving the competitive horse show lifestyle. At the start of CrossFit, she was the heaviest she had ever been in her life and needed to find a new way of living. Her journey took her from overweight to the CrossFit Games in 2013 with our CFSV team. That path paved the way for attaining her CrossFit L1 Certification in 2014 so she could share her passion for fitness and healthy living with more people.

In addition to CrossFit, Andrea also holds a B.A. and M.Ed. in Special Education and will have completed her Principal’s Credentials in June of 2015 to work in School Administration. In addition to teaching and CrossFit, Andrea is also a Registered Therapeutic Riding Instructor at Free Rein Therapeutic Riding, helping kids and adults with disabilities use horses as recreation and therapy.
