Yoga Instructor


Meet CrossFit Elkhart’s yoga instructor and calisthenic’s group leader, Sami!

When did you start CrossFit?

I started in January of 2015.

How long have you been coaching/instructing?

I’ve taught yoga at our box for the past year. I also taught while I was in college.

What’s your favorite WOD or movement?

It’s really tough for me to just isolate one as a favorite as I have many! I love deadlifts and cleans but if I had to pick one I would probably say burpees (I know I’m weird but you can’t pick what you are good at!), or Turkish get-ups depending on the day.

Outside of working out, what is your favorite hobby/interest?

Reading, exploring new places/things and cooking/baking.

Favorite sports team:

Chicago Cubs (and yes I was a fan long before they won!)

Tell us one interesting thing about yourself:

I spent three weeks in Japan while my ex-husband lived there for his externship.
