- CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 COACH
- CROSSFIT KIDS CERTIFIED
In 2016, Lura’s husband Rick suggested that she give CrossFit a try. She had recently completed a Half marathon and thought CrossFit WODs (workout of the day) would be “too short”. After an 8 min AMRAP that included burpees, kettlebell swings, and wall balls that left her lying on the floor, she soon realized that getting in shape did not require long lower intensity workouts. CrossFit was the way to work harder and smarter!
As a career competitive cheerleading coach for the University of Maryland (1992-2014) and current Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders Fitness Coach, Lura immediately felt at home coaching CrossFit classes. She loves the team spirit that you find in the gym and enjoys the inclusiveness that is felt among the athletes. She also loves the scalability of the workouts and watching beginners safely complete the same workouts as those with more advanced skills. Whether you finish first or last in the daily workout, the best part of the workout is cheering each other on.
Lura is married to Rick and has three children Hailey, Alex and Trey. She works full time for “Varsity Spirit” the worldwide leader in competitive cheer and dance and is the Brand manager for the Baltimore location. As a certified life coach, Lura enjoys trying to bring out the best in everyone. She strives to make coming to Blue Crab Fitness the best hour of your day and looks forward to watching every athlete gain mental and physical confidence as they train.
