Kara Petruzzelli, RD – Coach
I found CrossFit in 2014 and it changed my life forever. I started CrossFit as a
means of losing weight, but the more I did it, the more I become concerned about
the weight on the barbell than the weight on the scale. When I first started
CrossFit I was also riding horses competitively. I rode horses competitively for 18
years. When I stopped I missed the competition, so I dove into training for
CrossFit events. I look back to where I first started 6 years ago and I am amazed
daily at what I have accomplished and what my body is capable of. I have
competed in a number of local events since moving to South Carolina, and I
qualified for Fittest of the Upstate in 2018 and 2019.
I am a registered dietitian and I love working with member as they realize what
their body is capable of, and helping them become healthier, stronger, and the
best version of themselves.
I am involved in Lucky Pup rescue and love hiking, paddle boarding, and playing
with my dogs!
