Coach Lyda

I grew up in a family that wasn’t interested in sports or healthy eating habits. I lived this typical, unhealthy life, spending a lot of time on a couch or at a desk. I hated sweating and loved eating junk food.

Four years ago I realized that these routines would take their toll on my health over the next 20 or 30 years and that I needed to change!

I took my first CrossFit class in 2015 and I loved it! To me, CrossFit is more than just working out; it’s proving to myself that I can overcome challenges that I didn’t think I could. I’ve come to believe that physical fitness is achievable for everyone, regardless of age, gender, size, or physical limitations.

With a passion for fitness and a strong belief in the life-changing benefit of functional fitness, I became a certified CPR/AED in 2017. I took my CrossFit Level One and Columbus Weightlifting Level One in early 2018, and became a CrossFit Coach at YiQi in 2017.

My goal as a coach is to inspire individuals to make long-term lifestyle changes so that when they’re in their 80s they’re able to pick up and play with their grandchildren and fully enjoy life.
