Biography

As an athlete who has been in sports all of her life, including sports such as; soccer, softball, dance, cheerleading, and gymnastics. The sport she devoted the most energy toward was gymnastics. As a natural-born gymnast who spent 8 years in the sport until her senior year, she knows what it takes not only to excel in the sport, but also what it takes to be proficient in bodyweight movements. Beginning CrossFit only wanting to stay in shape, Sophia quickly realized that she had found a way she could train her body and elicit her competitive nature as well. Sophia has a passion for understanding human movement, exercise, wellness, nutrition, and everything involving fitness; graduating from UAB with a major in Kinesiology, Exercise Science, and a minor in Nutrition Science will propel her into her next stage in life. Attending OTA school and eventually working in pediatrics, Sophia will be changing lives for quite some time. She loves seeing people accomplish things they never thought they could and wants all of her athletes to believe in themselves and achieve what they think is impossible. As she says, “It is extremely rewarding as a coach to see confidence grow in your athletes,” and she works tirelessly to always help athletes accomplish their goals.
