Being a San Diego native, you would think I had grown up on the beach and in the water. Nope! I can’t even swim! I actually grew up in a gymnastics gym. I competed through USA Gymnastics level 8 at the Mission Valley YMCA. When I retired from the sport at age 16, I started coaching under some of the best coaches in the field—Glen Vaughan and Steve Butcher taught me the fundamentals of falling safely, having a strong core, and decent flexibility. After coaching for 10 years, I then judged competitive gymnastics until having my first son in 2014.
Around that same time, my sister was doing Crossfit and loving it, but I wasn’t sold. Then a friend from my church said there was a gym that was true to the original intention of CrossFit (one workout a day), and I should check it out. I stopped by Crossfit Humanity and LOVED it! I soon started coaching gymnastics. Over the years, I have slowly but surely embraced “kipping” gymnastics movements, but still find my heart is in strict movements.

Hola! I’ve been doing CrossFit for the last 6 years. I started in Santa Barbara, CA but have been lucky enough to have joined a few boxes in Northern and Southern California, with some truly amazing communities. Before CrossFit I played soccer for 18 years, football for 4 years, and track and field for 3 years. I also ran a few half marathons with my best time being 1 hour and 33 minutes—I like speed!
Being born in Mexico City, I started CrossFit with a mission—to encourage the Latin community to be more involved with and culturally embrace the healthy habits of this sport. What CrossFit means to me is a very special question. It’s a way to connect your body and mind with space and time. I try to be present in every lift and every workout. I believe that in today’s world, we focus so much on our past and future selves, we forget to be present. And that no matter how your workout goes, just be proud of yourself for trying to be a better version of you!

My experience with CrossFit began very reluctantly in 2016. At the time I was playing college volleyball and had no interest in working out more. But when a friend asked me to go with him to drop in and “try crossfit” I agreed to tag alone. The first class I took was death by burpees and I was the last one going. I remember the whole class cheering me on and supporting me. In recognizing the camaraderie and community in a CrossFit gym is second to none, I’ve been hooked. I have been in a CrossFit gym since.

Emalie found CrossFit in 2016 and has been hooked ever since. Previously, she was a long-distance runner with next-to-no weightlifting or gymnastics experience. She became hooked when weightlifting began to fix chronic pain in her knees and when her coach showed her a CrossFit promo that focused on the concept, “strong is beautiful.” The video featured female Games athletes talking about their body positivity, how they overcame societal stereotypes for women’s body, and ultimately learned that strong is also beautiful. This concept completely rewrote Emalie’s understanding of body positivity and empowering women to build confidence through strength and a healthy lifestyle became her greatest passion.
She became a CrossFit coach in December 2019 and has since worked at CrossFit Deliverance in Seattle, WA, and CrossFit VU in Pensacola, FL. She’s hosted gymnastics clinics, running groups, and nutrition challenges at these gyms. In her own training, she’s competed in several CrossFit competitions, completed a Half Ironman, and finished a full marathon—unintentionally all within a year.

Rica comes to San Diego by way of Minneapolis, MN, where they were first exposed to the world of CrossFit. Though they were always engaged in fitness and sports throughout their life (Tae Kwan Do, soccer, basketball, football, and later, their favorite, tennis) they never encountered the level of intensity and community quite like they had experienced with CrossFit. While inspired by the intensity and competitive aspects of this world, Rica was particularly hooked after witnessing incredible feats of strength and skill from those who we don’t typically associate with weightlifting—older, queer, trans, female or femme athletes—all of whom found empowerment and joy from this method of training.
In 2018, Rica became certified and started coaching at Solcana Fitness in Minneapolis and Mastodon Strength and Conditioning (Floral City CrossFit) in their hometown in Michigan. Through these experiences, Rica has cultivated a deep appreciation for working directly with athletes to grow and develop their own abilities. Rica is incredibly honored to be a part of the CrossFit Humanity community and is excited to work with athletes on all their fitness goals!

Gina grew up playing soccer and dancing ballet until high school where she started running track and cross country. From there she transitioned to triathlons in college and also started Crossfit in 2010. After graduating nursing school Gina started her career as a Naval Officer, which provided the opportunity to compete and train in locations all over the world. After spending many years and gaining knowledge as an athlete in fitness and nutrition, Gina began coaching to share this with the Crossfit community.
Crossfit has always provided Gina with a community no matter where she was sent, and she loves being able to pay that forward to the members of CrossFit Humanity.

Active Duty Nurse
From a young age, I have loved all elements of fitness. Sports kept me active which was great for my health, but after being hospitalized due to an asthma attack, I drifted off the health and fitness path in early adulthood. At age 25, I discovered CrossFit, which has turned my life around. It didn’t take long before I was re-educating myself and gaining the knowledge and experience I needed to help others. In 2013, I joined the CrossFit Witham team in Lincoln, UK.
CrossFit and staying healthy gives me the confidence to know life has very few limitations. As a coach, I get the pleasure of delivering that confidence to anyone that will give me the opportunity. No matter where you are in life, who you are, what you like, or what you don’t–if you want to be a better you, I believe in you. So, forget anything that’s put you off or knocked you down. No one should ever feel like they don’t belong. If you want to do something, let’s achieve it.

Nick has loved all things active and competitive for as long as he can remember. He has torn both ACLs and reluctantly learned that he might not be as capable in some sports as he once was! Nick discovered CrossFit in 2015 while living in Oakland, CA, and has been hooked ever since. The positivity, community, fun, and competition are what attracted him and what keeps him coming back.
Having moved around the country quite a bit (MN, CA, NV, IL, TX, and back to CA!) he found that CrossFit gyms have always been a great way to get to know people and develop community in a new city! The backgrounds of CrossFit communities are so interesting and diverse, and CrossFit Humanity is no exception. It’s an honor to be able to serve this community and the rich variety of members! If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out to him!
