OLIVIA GRIMSLAND

HEAD COACH

 

I have been doing Crossfit since 2010 and have become more and more enthusiastic about health and fitness as the years go by.

I began practicing Yoga in 2003, which quickly became my passion. In 2008, I completed an intensive 6 month Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program at Shakti Yoga Woodstock. I fell in love with CrossFit the first day I tried it. It challenged my strength and abilities in a whole new and exciting way. I found that it was a great compliment to my Yoga practice and vice versa.

I am constantly challenged, continue to get stronger and am always setting new goals for myself. I train and work hard to maintain a healthy body and mind. For me there is no better feeling than surpassing a personal goal. For myself, it is important to build strength as well as flexibility.

Because of my extensive yoga background my focus as a coach is not only on proper form, the quality of the movements, but also the health of the muscles and joints. In my experience this attention to detail maximizes potential benefits.

Experiencing all the amazing benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle really fueled my want to help others achieve goals and happiness in their own lives. I never tire from watching all the clients grow and challenge themselves. I am always continuing my education and learning by attending classes, seminars and workshops. I am absolutely thrilled to be a member of the team along with all the other amazing coaches at Kingston Athletics.
