Shannon Kolb – Coach
I found CrossFit on a whim in January of 2019. I grew up highly uncoordinated with absolutely no reflexes, so sports were never my thing. I rode horses my entire life, but anything with a ball was out of the question. That being said, I never really learned how to work out until I was in college and tired of being out of shape.
As a broke college student, I started lifting weights for the first time at Planet Fitness and found that I really enjoyed it! I quickly outgrew the knowledge I could glean from Instagram and Youtube videos and wanted the personal touch of a coach and fitness community. I learned that Swamp Rabbit CrossFit was hiring front desk staff, so I jumped on the opportunity and applied! I worked the front desk for 2 years before getting my Level 1 Certification to begin coaching.
My favorite part of coaching is watching people fall in love with fitness no matter their background. The confidence people can gain in the gym is unmatched and so rewarding to watch. I love working with the natural-born athlete, but I also love working with people like me, with “no athletic capabilities,” who learn that their bodies can do much more than they have ever imagined!
Outside of the gym, you can find me hanging with friends, at a coffee shop, or playing with my pup, Indigo.
