Anna Locke

  • General Manager CrossFit OverWatch

  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

  • CrossFit Football Cert

  • Alexander Method of SMR

  • USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach

  • CrossFit Online Programming, Scaling and Lesson Planning courses

  • Vegan Nutrition Health Coach

 

Coach Anna has been an athlete most of her life.

From soccer to tennis to badminton, gymnastics, basketball, softball and swimming, and even playing collegiate soccer and competition badminton in college, sports were always her thing.

After high school, Anna coached tennis and badminton and that’s where her passion of helping others learn and improve their strength and athletic abilities, started.

 

Coach Anna was introduced to CrossFit by her brother in March, 2009 and immediately fell in love with it. She trained under and was mentored by a CrossFit Level 2 coach and CrossFit seminar staff member and once ready, started coaching in 2012. 12 years and 4 gyms later, she is still as passionate as ever about the sport and how it can improve people’s physical and mental health.

 

As a HUGE animal lover and advocate, Coach Anna took her love of animals, physical fitness and plant-based foods and became a vegan nutrition health coach. She uses that knowledge to help guide others on their own wellness journeys.

When she’s not at the gym, you can likely find Anna kicking up her boots on the dance floor! As a line

dance instructor, she also gets to share that enjoyment and great workout with others.

As the General Manager "Boss Lady"of CrossFit OverWatch, Anna brings new ideas, energy, excitement and a case of OCD for cleaning to the gym.

Pop in for a workout, say “Hi” and maybe even learn a line dance!

Tiffany grew up playing multiple sports.

She played club soccer for 12 years and boxed for 8 years. Tiff has been doing CrossFit for 5 years and has been at CrossFit OverWatch for over 3 years. She's noticed a huge difference in herself not only strength, but also speed, power, and overall appearance. She began doing CrossFit because She was looking for a challenge and hated walking around the gym without any idea of what to do next. "I can’t pick a favorite workout but I LOVE Chipper style workouts, I guess that makes me a glutton for punishment."

Her goal is to make it to the CF games and she would love to help out members reach their own fitness goals.
