This Month’s Featured Athlete

Vanessa Geer


Mom, coach, wife, Veteran, student, Reservist, and general badass. Vanessa manages a schedule crazier than all of our’s and still has time to dedicate to training and coaching. Congratulations, V. You certainly deserve the honor of this month’s featured athlete!
“With CrossFit, I gained healthy weight, and strength. I developed confidence from climbing ropes, doing pullups and beating a lot of the guys I worked out with. Now, I eat to fuel my performance. It’s still a struggle some days–I still have “fat” days, especially dealing with my body post-baby, but I know that I need to EAT to stay strong and healthy.”
