Adrienne Fowler

Specialty Coach Adrienne Fowler, CF-L1 Trainer, mom of 2 amazing little girls, has been a part of the CFIS Community for almost 3 years. Adrienne started CrossFit in April of 2012 after being convinced by her Personal Trainer that she would “love” it. He was right, she was instantly hooked and quickly grew obsessed with perfecting form and Olympic Lifting.

Adrienne grew up on the stage as an incredibly disciplined and dedicated ballerina which is where her focus remained through her adolescence and teenage years. As she grew older she moved on to working out in globo gyms and completing personal training goals such as sprint triathlons… however Adrienne was always looking for the next challenge and that challenge was CrossFit.

As the Specialty Coach Adrienne is here to provide coaching to members whether it be personal training, improving your Olympic Lifts, or putting together a meal plan, she is here to help.  She also coaches an all women’s barbell class called Barbell Betty’s.  This class is exclusive to women of all skill levels and provides a fun and supportive environment for women to come to and throw some weight around.  Adrienne also worked out through her entire pregnancy with her 2nd child (March 2014-December 2014) so she is able to share her experience with staying fit while pregnant with women out there walking the same path.
