"Crossfit is a community that I feel privileged to be a part of and, of course, who doesn’t love a good deadlift!"
Antoinette started her journey in 2013 and joined Crossfit Uhuru in 2018. In 2016 and 2017 she wondered into a bodybuilding format of training but her love for Crossfit prevailed and brought her to her current home - Crossfit Uhuru. She competed in the Crossfit Open in 2015 and 2019 and the Last Man Standing team event in 2019.
Antoinette is a firm believer that Crossfit is the best combination of training styles aimed at daily functionality. Crossfit provides a supportive community where you get to push your limits but it is scaled to every individual.
We are excited to have Antoinette join the coaching staff at Crossfit Uhuru as an assistant coach focusing on ladies’ classes/Crossfit lite. Crossfit gave her the opportunity to build confidence and she believes that this community is an ideal space for women to feel empowered in their bodies. This is a perfect platform for any person that is either starting their fitness journey or looking for a community of fitness where friends become family.
