Katie Barrow

HEAD COACH

I grew up playing sports. I was very competitive in basketball and track. I earned a track scholarship to run for Brigham Young University (2007-2011). My love for exercise started from a very young age with my parents. They are both very athletic. My dad was a University of Utah athlete and professional power lifter. He taught me a love for fitness. I grew up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Flo Jo posters in my room, flexing my muscles with my brothers, and exercising with my family. In college I spent a few years as a ski instructor. I learned that I have a passion for sharing my love of recreation with others.

I earned my degree in Recreation Management and Youth Leadership. The strength coach I had while training as a sprinter for BYU helped me realize my desire to become a Strength and Conditioning Coach. After having my first daughter and gaining upwards of 65 pounds, I just couldn’t lose the weight. I missed feeling and looking like an athlete, so I started Crossfit. I fell in love with CrossFit and never looked back. The weight came off and I’ve found a love for competing.
