Saturday: Business as usual


Meet Kurtis Rissmiller, CrossFit Coach from EA’s gym in Sonoma.  Kurtis will be teaching the Saturday November 26th classes while all your Wine Country Coaches are out of town. We think you’ll like him!

Realizing the benefits, both physically and mentally, Kurtis has been naturally drawn to fitness and exercise since his early teens. From those early years he tried different blends of strength and endurance training looking for, but never quite finding, the optimal method. However, the search for the ‘perfect’ fitness routine ended 13 years later in 2005 while living in Brooklyn, NY. There he and 2 close friends discovered CrossFit. After giving it a three month trial they never looked back.

At that time Kurtis and his friends also started taking other curious friends under their wing in their spare time, training them with CrossFit methodology. Witnessing first hand the incredible changes he was helping bring to their lives started him on his path toward being a personal trainer.

Fast forward to 2008 and he had returned home to Sonoma County, specifically Sonoma, and was ready to make CrossFit and Personal Training his career. He finally got his Level 1 CrossFit Certification Jan/2011, adding this to his already acquired NASM cert.

Kurtis counts himself fortunate to be able to do the some of things he loves, CrossFit and helping people make positive changes in their life, in such a beautiful and diverse part of the world!



It involves snatches, so come on in and get your WOD on!
