About Coach

Coach Sierra began CrossFit after graduating from college and moving to North Carolina for a job. She has lived and trained in North Carolina for the last 6 years before returning home to Maine to open Elm City CrossFit with her mom Diane. She is a semi-finals level athlete with years of coaching and gym management. She loves all things gymnastics and will never turn down an opportunity to lift heavy. At the gym you'll find Sierra listening to Punk Rock Hits of the 2000s or Big Booty Mix. Her guilty pleasure is a bag of Doritos, and she loves a good Tropical Fuel for Fire post WOD.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

Sierra is motivated by people who are never content. She loves being around and coaching folks with a can-do growth mindset. Her favorite part about coaching is seeing how mcuh confidence an athlete gets when they accomplish something they once thought was impossible. "To know something is hard, and work everyday to get there - its so inspiring to see that hard work pay off."
