2021 Masters weightlifting World Champion, 3X CrossFit Games Athlete, 4X USA Weightlifting National Champion & 2x Pan American champion
With really no athletic background, I started training in 2012. I had been an avid runner for about a year when a friend suggested I try CrossFit. I was hooked after my first class! My first class was at CrossFit Wellington. Within a month of starting, I entered my first competition, placing 10th. There was no going back after that!
I completed my Level 1 certification within a year of starting the sport. My strength, endurance, crazy cardio ability and just pure passion for the sport drove me. In 2013 I finished 53rd in the CrossFit Open, in 2014 I finished 11th in the entire world. In 2015 and 2017 & 2018 I qualified and competed in the Reebok CrossFit Games. Finishing 18th,18th and 13th. I also competed on the Olympic Lifting stage where I succeeded as a 4x National Olympic Lifting Champion, 2x Pan American Olympic Champion, 2021 World Champion and Have held 9 international and National lifting records.
I became a coach/trainer because while excercise is my passion, helping people reach their goals is what motivates me. I want people to feel the rush when they accomplish something they never thought that they could do. Seeing someone get a pull-up or a personal best lift is my driving factor. When I am in the gym I am always watching to see if I can help our members reach their potential.
I still help members through individual personal training and have been coaching high school weight lifting for many years with many of my students becoming state podium finishers and champions.
My name is Katie Yska, and I have been a Personal Trainer since 2020 and have recently become a CrossFit Coach (CF-OL1). Health and fitness are what keep me going every day. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, but I can proudly say I have lost and kept off 100 lbs since 2018. I want to help everyone find their love of fitness and learn to embrace this short life we truly live. I encourage you to speak up for yourself, listen to your body, and train for life! I can help you every step of the way.
I’ve always had a passion for health and fitness, and after years of playing sports I needed to find something similar with a group setting that had direction, and that’s when I came across CrossFit ten years ago. I immediately fell in love and knew I’d eventually want to be a coach myself. When it comes to coaching I love helping people with their form, achieving things they didn’t think was possibly, and making new friends along the way. Fun facts about myself: I’m also a NICU nurse, a DJ and a Scotch snob.
I have always carried a passion for health and wellness and directing that passion towards helping others reach their goals in their mind, body, and spirit.
I have been teaching health and physical education since 2017. In addition to teaching, I have coached strength and conditioning for the Pahokee High Schools football team, and am an active Boot Camp and CrossFit level 1 instructor.
In my past athletic career I played football for St, Lawerence university where I held a team captain position, and graduated with studies in exercise science. With my extended background and interest in fitness some of you may question why I started. I believe fitness starts with you, and once you make that commitment the sky is the limit. I myself, struggled with a massive weight gain post college, where clothes began to feel tight and my reflection in the mirror was not who I wanted to be. I made a commitment to myself to do and be better. Health is wealth. I began eating for purpose by following a mostly plant based diet and exercising with intent. From that point on everything changed. My fitness journey began and my lifestyle changed forever. I look forward to helping you find your journey too!
Government contractor by day, fitness enthusiast by night. Outside of coaching and working out, I enjoy tacos and margaritas. My favorite day at the gym is when it’s upper body. Fun facts: I have traveled to over 10 countries, lived in 5 different states, and am a Air Force Vet.
I took my first CrossFit class a few years ago just to get my buddy to stop telling me “you need to try CrossFit”….
I was already working out but not seeing the results I wanted and he swore to me that CrossFit could change that…
I took my first class, loved it and joined as soon as class ended.
Then, the same buddy sent me this:
“You will NEVER out exercise your diet”….
I changed my diet and hit CF as much as I could.
Over the next two years I lost 30 pounds and regained 25 of them back in the form of muscle.
What started out as taking a class to get my buddy off my back has turned into a lifestyle. I obtained my CrossFit Level I Trainer Certificate and am currently obtaining the CF Nutrition Certificate.
I love to share my experience and work with others to achieve their own goals.
I look forward to working with you…
