Coach Dominique is originally from Portland, Oregon and grew up playing and enjoying a variety of different sports. After a career planning meetings and conferences, she took some time off to stay at home with her two boys, Noah (8) and Nathaniel (6). She found CrossFit a few months after having Noah and although she was very intimidated at first, she really started to enjoy the community. After spending most of her twenties running nowhere on an elliptical machine and afraid to lift weights in a regular gym, learning how to olympic lift and challenge herself in a WOD was a new and amazing feeling!
To Dominique, the best part of CrossFit has been participating as a family with her husband Danny along with their kids. One of her favorite things is the ability to scale anything for anyone, regardless of age or ability. The past year has really ignited a belief that CrossFit truly is for everyone, especially those folks who don’t seem at first like typical CrossFitters. This drove Dominique to attend the L1 Certificate Course and then pursue the CrossFit Kids Certification as well. Her favorite workout includes anything with a heavy barbell, but she truly feels the most satisfaction when she tackles a workout with thrusters and burpees and lives to see another day.
When Coach Dominique isn’t at the gym, you can find her hanging out with her family, baking, or reading a good book.
