CrossFit Fargo is excited to announce we are adding a new member to our full-time team! Marissa Willits will be joining our staff starting Monday, 7/9. Marissa will be coaching regular CrossFit classes, as well as specialty classes for pregnant and postpartum women. We look forward to welcoming her to the day-to-day operations of CrossFit Fargo.
Here is a quick message from Marissa:
Hi, I’m Marissa and about 6 months ago my husband Aaron and I made the difficult and emotional choice to leave our gym of 7 years to join CrossFit Fargo. Programming and schedules were a better fit here. Little did we know that this difficult decision would set me up to be in the right place at the right time to receive some Divine intervention. I had made another difficult decision to leave a soul sucking 9-5 job in pursuit of something crazy: happiness. I decided that no exchange of money was worth my happiness.
Unemployed and scared in a new place Jess offered me a position with the CFF team. It would give me the opportunity to do something I have always loved to do. A more perfect situation could not have presented itself.
I’ve been crossfitting for 7 years. I coached for probably 3 1/2 of those. I have my CF Level 1 trainer certification (Level two is this weekend!) as well as my USAW Level 1 coaches certification and I’m on the ND Weightlifting BOD. I have taken CrossFit’s Movement & Mobility course and I am a YogaFit Level 1 instructor as well.
I am excited to be back in my element teaching and coaching CrossFit. It has changed my life. I got married in a CrossFit gym and my son took his first steps at CFF while we were warming up for 18.3. To say it’s important is an understatement. I’m excited to share my love of the sport of fitness with others in hopes that their lives are equally changed.
