1. How did you learn about CrossFit?

I learned about CrossFit from my Physical Therapist in 2005 who was rehabbing my shoulder after a dislocation. At that time it was basically just an HTML style website so learning to do the WODS was an adventure..you kids don’t know how good you have it

Since 2005…started after I could dead hang from a pull-up bar after PT and never looked back!

Majera Majidi, DC – Chiropractic Physician

What’s your background?I am a Chiropractic Physician with 14 years of experience and got involved in fitness at the same time by becoming a certified strength & conditioning specialist.  I was a strength & conditioning coach for high school and collegiate level sports for a number of years, then got involved with racquet sports \’off-court\’ conditioning as this was my background as a sport. I was already cross-training to improve in racquet sports. One of the guys I train with saw me and said, “you know there are places that do all this stuff you do, but in a group for time and reps.” Once I heard that, I started looking for a box. I have been involved with CrossFit since 2009. Consistently and competitively for 2 years now. I have been on the CF Games medic team, and have hundreds of CF athletes as patients in my physical medicine practice.

What’s your favorite Nasty Girl? (and your best time) Nicole – Run 400 and max reps pull ups. 20 min AMRAP (102 pull ups)

What certifications do you have and what certifications are on your wish list?

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Rocktape FMT 1

Certified Doctor of Chiropractic

On my wish list: CrossFit Kids and CrossFit Gymnastics

I have been practicing sports medicine and chiropractic for 14 years, but the best part of my career is coaching individuals in fitness from beginner level to elite athletes, seeing their progress, applying what I know in sports science to make them better athletes.  I also have a transformation program for individuals with chronic problems that I can guide to a new lifestyle.  One of my most successful clients is an individual male who used to be 560 lbs. and in less than 2 years under my program has lost 220 lbs., embraced the crossfit lifestyle, learned what to eat and avoid, and has never turned back. True transformation that continues to progress.  Individuals succeed no matter what their goals are when they are one of my clients. Your goals are my priority.

Kelsey Oliver

1. How did you learn about CrossFit?

I learned about CrossFit from Vincent Oliver. I remember him telling me that I would love it because I’m very competitive. It took some time for him to convince me to try it. I was one of those girls that we all hate that said “I don’t want to get bulky”. Now I laugh about it and absolutely love CrossFit! I can’t imagine doing anything else and I feel sorry for people running on a treadmill to get “fit”.

2. How long have you been CrossFitting?

I’ve been CrossFitting for almost 5 years now.

3. What’s your favorite Nasty Girl? (and your best time)

My favorite Nasty girl is Annie and my PR for Annie was 6:04.

4. If you have a military background, what service were you in and how many tours have you had?

I was in the AirForce and was lucky enough not to be deployed.

5. What certifications do you have and what certifications are on your wish list?

I have a Level 1 certification and would love to get my USAW cert and focus more on olympic lifting
