We are excited to welcome Abby & Hannah to the Charter Oak CrossFit coaching staff! Both women have solid experience as top athletes and are great assets to our team as coaches.
Abby was a competitive athlete through high school and active with intramural sports during college. After graduation, she struggled to fill the void and turned to running. In October of 2013, her roommate and boyfriend Chris wanted to try CrossFit, and came home with rave reviews. Since then, she’s been hooked. Outside of the gym, she is a nurse at Hartford Hospital and loves traveling around with Chris and her dog Maisie. As a nurse she has always loved helping people, and now with coaching she is inspired to help members achieve all of their health and fitness goals.
Hannah is also a runner, turned CrossFitter. She is a Connecticut transplant from the Midwest, where she played basketball, soccer and lacrosse. A Miami of Ohio graduate, she received a BS in Social Studies Education for grades 7-12. She now is a coach and teacher at South Windsor high school. Becoming part of a community and competitive team atmosphere after being a part of several teams throughout her early years is just one of reasons Hannah has connected to CrossFit and developed a strong commitment to the sport. Hannah will be leading our teen athlete programs this summer!
Keep an eye out for both at the 5:30AM class and throughout the night!
