A Letter From Sheena
Foundation CrossFit Family,
FCF has been my second home for 10 years.. wowza! I’m honored and grateful to have been a part of it all: the very beginning at Greenlake + Lake City, the shared space with Seattle DogWorks + workouts at Cal Anderson, FCF 3.0 (pre-Chophouse Row), and the ever present 1415 12th Ave. So it is bittersweet to announce that I will be stepping away from my full-time coach role.
Getting to know all of you is one of the rewarding parts of being a coach. I love teaching and cheering you on. I enjoy seeing your success/PRs, witnessing failure, seeing even more success/PRs after said failure… this can all count for outside of the gym too! I also got to know some of you by leading nutrition challenges, community events, and our holiday parties. So it is fitting that I will be taking these experiences with me to our neighbor down the street, The Riveter, as Associate Director of Member Development.
It has been a fun, yet challenging, time figuring out my goals/passions/career since becoming a mother. Though I won’t be around as much as I have been (I will still be around — down the line will coach from time to time. Andrew won’t let me go too far, and he’ll be back coaching in the evenings), I’m very excited to start this new journey!
Please continue to be badass!! Continue to cheer each other on, high five one another more, be your authentic selves.. that’s what makes FCF what it is. I feel like I have a lot more to say, but this isn’t a goodbye note so I’ll leave it as is. 🙂
I’m excited to be an athlete alongside you all. My last day of coaching is this Friday 8/17. Come celebrate a special Champagne Friday with me!
“The First Lady” of FCF
