REBECCA BALLSTAEDT

CrossFit has given me a new lease on life and has taken everything that I already knew about fitness to another level.

I am passionate about the benefits CrossFit provides to both competitive athletes and individuals from all backgrounds and fitness levels. It helps all who are looking to improve overall health and mental toughness.

Crossfit has been a perfect fit for me. It has allowed me to train as a competitive athlete, and during two pregnancies and now moving forward for health and wellness. I believe it helped me recover faster post pregnancy and I feel stronger now than ever before. CrossFit allows me to have the energy that I need to play with my kids, run with my dog, and have mental and emotional clarity all day long.

I have always been active and I hold a deep passion for fitness. I have been a lifelong athlete who played softball, rugby, and volleyball at the collegiate level. I spent most of my childhood and adolescence in sports and fitness, and later took up running and competed in half and full marathons.

I am committed to expanding my skill sets to allow me to work with a wide variety of individuals. Injury prevention and optimized function of the body are a priority for people of all ages and abilities, and I am ready to help each client understand their bodies to the fullest extent.

My goal is to connect with each person I train in a way that motivates and excites them to perform at their highest level. I will encourage you in ways that will challenge you to get out of your comfort zone and elicit positive changes. Devoted to CrossFit for over a decade, I have witnessed the physical adaptations, and mental benefits that CrossFit produces.

I received my B.A. in Exercise Sport Science and Nutrition from the University of Utah and I hold many Nationally Accredited Certifications. After spending ten plus years in the health and fitness industry, I decided to pursue a career as a CrossFit coach and launch a very successful nutrition business Evolve Fitness. I am a strong believer that nutrition is the foundation for health and longevity and I love consulting with individuals helping pave a path for their personal nutritional goals.

I am a wife to a wonderful husband, Nick, who shares my same passion for Crossfit, and mother to two beautiful girls, Charly 8 and Piper 6 that I love being active with.
