Hi there! Meet the Kerri behind kerrigrace.co
I’m a CrossFitter + CrossFit coach + Core & Pelvic floor nerd + Entrepreneur + Wife + Momma to two + Educator + Extroverted Introvert. I love everything summer, sunshine, barbells, books (mostly thrillers), word search and sodoku, and country music.
Hello! I’m Kerri
I’m a paralegal turned CrossFit Coach in 2012 who left the law office behind to coach full time and have never looked back. After my own experience with pregnancy, postpartum, and Diastasis Recti in 2016, I saw the huge gap in knowledge in the CrossFit world when it comes to women-specific knowledge, and how to adequately train women through all stages of life. I’ve since been on a mission to merge my knowledge and experience coaching CrossFit, with knowledge and experience working in women’s health to give CrossFitters the education and coaching to maximize their training through all seasons of life.
There I am, it’s 2017 and I am sitting with my then baby, just having finished the Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism course (which I mainly took just for myself btw), and all I can help thinking is…why in the F is this information not more readily taught?! How have I not known ANY of this? Then, I felt the need to share this information. Then, I started thinking..what if I started helping women like me? My husband and I went to dinner shortly thereafter and I told him my ideas… I am pretty sure I talked for at least 2 hours straight. When I finished, he said, I think you should do it. The very next day I started working, and my business was born.
My Approach & Values
Education, empowerment, and autonomy are at the heart of everything I do here. The power of education and knowledge when it comes to your body as a female, couple with empowerment of navigating your season of life, and honoring what YOU want to achieve can be used in the gym to further those gains.
I have a client-first approach to my coaching. The things that you want to do are always asked about, considered, and front of mind. My goal as a coach is to support and guide you to your goals, and to work WITH you as a team.
No one knows your life and body better than you do. Merge that with my coaching knowledge and experience and let’s kick ass.

You created a stronger foundation than I've ever had. You made me trust the process. And you held the reins back when you needed to, making me more patient with myself. I am so happy with where I am, even if not as lean or strong as I'd like. I will be. And you have everything to do with that.
In literally 2 months I went from the girl that could barely do 1 kipping pullup to the animal that can officially link 3 ttb. 3 kipping pull-ups. And I did 3 strict pull ups for a 10 min emom today!
It went crazy good! I could get to about 50 [double unders] before I felt symptoms. That's a huge improvement. I am so thankful for your help.
On a side note, aside from the 300# deadlift (which is coming!) I hit allll my 1 year postpartum goals. And I hit most of them by 9 months.
I have enjoyed the workouts, it's already having a positive effect on how I feel and also helped me become more conscious.. getting back to me!! Woohoo!!
