Krista and children

Krista started following the website with her husband Ahmik when they were stationed in Sigonella, Sicily in 2004.  Upon returning to the States in 2005, they became “the Deadheads” of CrossFit and attended as many certifications as possible with their 2-year-old son.  By 2005, she attained the rank of a Level 3 CrossFit Certified Trainer, and was part of the Certification Staff.  She was coached by and learned from the original CrossFit Greats of Santa Cruz: Greg “Coach” Glassman, Robb Wolf, Mike Burgener, Mark Rippetoe, and others. She holds the following certifications: USA Weightlifting Level 1, CrossFit Powerlifting, CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFit Nutrition, a current CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit L2, CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting, and CrossFit Judges course certifications.  In 2005, Krista started her first affiliate with Ahmik called the San Diego CrossFit Weekend Warriors.  In 2006, they founded their second affiliate, CrossFit SoCal.  She is the proud momma of 3 beautiful and talented children. When she is not at the gym, she likes to attend her children’s various extra-curricular events, Lindy Hop, go to Disneyland, and play the piano.
