Fun Fact: 

 Kara has a strong love for donuts!  All kinds of donuts. “Whenever I travel to new cities/countries, I’m always on the lookout for something new and different.” 


Kara was a three year varsity starter for her basketball team in high school and just generally loved being active whenever she could be.  Kara played four more years of basketball at St. Norbert College. “I was never the most talented athlete but was always the one working the hardest.”  Kara found CrossFit one year after graduation and was hooked instantly. A few years Kara received her CrossFit-L1 Trainer Course and started coaching.  “I love CrossFit because everyone can do it, and on any given day you’re likely to be inspired by at least one person in class, if not multiple people.”


What you love about coaching/working at Big Dane:

My favorite thing about coaching at Big Dane is seeing people grind it out every day. Whether it’s overcoming a mental barrier with lifting, or a physical barrier (fighting through a tough metcon), seeing people shine in their own way is the best. Success means something different for everyone, and every day at Big Dane I get to witness that!
