A Message from Genevieve:  I have always been a mover. I started my life as a dancer and I haven’t missed a beat since! I’ve trained in many techniques and have had a multitude of amazing opportunities in my dance career. To say that being a dancer “taught me a lot” is an understatement.

A few things I learned as a dancer:

  • Body Awareness
  • Diligence
  • Patience
  • Teamwork
  • Passion

The list goes on, but the beautiful thing is, all of these lessons have transferred directly to CrossFit from my perspective as both an athlete and a coach. Body Awareness aids in my ability to perform the work and help others to achieve awareness for themselves. Reaching your goals is a journey where diligence & patience are a must. We at CrossFit Austin are a team in all aspects. We are a community, a family, a tribe. We are one. Passion is probably the most evident in my transition from dance to CrossFit. We are a passionate people. We have a common interest in creating a healthy and fulfilling life and commonality fuels passion.

I love to share these lessons with others and I’m so honored to be doing that at CrossFit Austin.
