Crossfit Current Coach

Lauren Risner

Facility Manager/Coach

I'm originally from a small city on the east side of the state, Garden City. I moved to Kalamazoo in 2015 where I completed my bachelors at Western Michigan University studying exercise science. I knew with being an athlete all of my life I wanted to continue my fitness journey and help others in any way I possibly could. I love taking adventures and traveling the world, but most importantly I love spending any time I can with my friends & family.

How you started at CrossFit Current and what made you transition into coaching: The summer before I graduated from Western I took an internship with Fusion Athletics. Over the course of 6 weeks I was able to participate in classes, observe how the business worked, built relationships with the members and fell in love. I decided after my internship I was going to stay and get signed up to take my L1 and become a coach. I just absolutely love the community and contributing to someone’s best part of their day.

My favorite part of being a coach is… Helping people reach their goals and creating a better version of themselves.

Favorite WOD:

Cash-In:
