Adaptive Athlete Training
Caroline found CrossFit in 2010, wanting to supplement her offseason soccer training. A dedicated athlete, she committed to University of Central Florida as a Goalkeeper before transferring to Eckerd College to finish her athletic and academic career. She credits CrossFit as a catalyst of education and passion in her life. The nutritional education alone proved invaluable, as she was later diagnosed and treated for Chronic Lyme disease in 2012 until 2016. She based her capstone senior thesis on advanced principles of nutritional intervention for modern health & disease, and the proper applications for elite sport performance.
Caroline has long enjoyed working with teams and youth sport athletes. She spent much of her early career coaching in the collegiate world and for prestigious youth soccer development organizations around the country. She joined UCLA’s Athletic Performance staff for a highly competitive season-long internship working with all Olympic Sport teams. She was also given a rare responsibility to direct an eight-week program for UCLA Women’s Soccer Goalkeepers. Upon returning from UCLA, Caroline joined the Sports Performance staff at Hofstra University as their volunteer Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach with all sport teams, while continuing her work in the CrossFit community.
Caroline is CrossFit’s first deaf cochlear implant recipient to be certified CCFT (CF-L3). Her mission is to advance awareness and education of adaptive training principles. She believes quality coaching for adaptive athletes should be as reliable as sunshine or running water: everywhere for everyone.
