Born and raised in Orleans, Ontario, Alyssa has been involved in competitive sports since 2014. She played Ottawa Fury soccer and has over 5 years of experience competing in kickboxing and Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. Alyssa has also competed in Crossfit as both an individual and a team on many occasions and has coaching experience in youth soccer, martial arts, and high school self-defence. Although many label her as a “cardio-bunny” her favourite Crossfit workout is DT in any form.
She ran her first marathon in 2015 and compares this to a commitment to improve one’s physical fitness at Orleans CrossFit + OCFIT: the hardest part is taking that first leap, but once you get started, there is no turning back! Starting Crossfit in 2016, Alyssa fell in love with the sport's community aspect and loves seeing the members’ showing up and giving it their all each day. There is nothing more rewarding than helping enthusiastic cross-fitters reach their fitness goals while blasting music, working hard, and having a good time!
