My name is Kaelin Simmons, I am a Texas native and a Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi graduate. I spent 5 years on the Islanders’ Women’s Track and Field team while I completed my Undergraduate degree in Exercise Science.
My whole life I have been a part of Sports and fitness. I started going to CrossFit classes when I was in high school in 2011 and absolutely loved it and soon after I began competitions. After high school, I competed at A&M Corpus Christi as a thrower on the Track team where I broke many records and earned many awards as a walk on athlete turned scholarship athlete. After college, I was recruited to train and compete as a member of USAWeightlifting and have been doing so ever since. My love for competing and training is why I chose to stay in this field and earn my USA Weightlifting L2 certification and my CrossFit L1 License. I have always wanted to be a coach because I know fitness and sports bring people together from all over and teaches you so many life skills you would never learn without a great coach or great teammates. That is why I encourage everyone to try something new, to always want to get better at what they are not so good at and to try and be a better you everyday. My motto has always been “Hard work beats talent when talent isn’t willing to work.” and I stand by that.
I am here at New Braunfels CrossFit Sporthalle for one simple reason. YOU. I want to make YOUR life better through fitness. I want YOU to make my life better through fitness. I want YOU to be able to call Sporthalle your home and your team.
