I’m Anni, owner and coach at Lamorinda CrossFit. I have been coaching CrossFit for nearly 9 years and it has been the best and most rewarding part of my professional life. What I love most about Lamorinda CrossFit is helping others become part of our community and guiding them in changing their lives for the better. Not having an athletic background, CrossFit seemed scary and daunting to me. About 10 years ago, a friend invited me into a CrossFit class where I was greeted by people who were truly invested in their fitness goals as well as mine; this gave me the tools to live a more healthful life and the drive to pay it forward–which turned into opening Lamorinda CrossFit.

Allison has always enjoyed sports and athletic activities. Growing up, she swam, danced, and played soccer and water polo. In college, she played Division I water polo at the University of the Pacific. After becoming a mom, Allison tried just about every workout trend in town, with each one lasting only a few months before boredom set in. That all changed when she found Lamorinda CrossFit; she has been an avid CrossFitter for over 6 years. Allison is thrilled to join the training staff at Lamorinda CrossFit so that she can share her love and enthusiasm for CrossFit with all of our amazing clients. When Allison isn’t at the gym, you can find her making memories with her family, teaching elementary school students, driving her two children to endless activities, playing soccer or curling up with a good book.
