Kaylan Coker, coach
Kaylan was always active growing up. She dabbled in dance, softball, and gymnastics but never considered herself a serious athlete. As an adult, she continued working out at typical globo gyms but she desired something more to keep her motivated and engaged. With this in mind, she walked through the doors of CrossFit North Fulton in 2012 having no clue what to expect. Her first introductory WOD changed the course of her life as she knew it. She instantly fell in love with the close camaraderie of CrossFit North Fulton along with learning challenging new skills. A year later, she completed her CrossFit Level 1 Certification and has been coaching at CrossFit North Fulton ever since. Finally finding her niche in CrossFit, she now sees herself as a true athlete and quickly realized that the food she ate was just as important as the training… if not more! Inspired, Kaylan decided to go back to school and is currently working on becoming a Registered Dietitian while also earning her Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition. She has an intimate understanding that total health includes not just working out, but is a combination of good nutrition and self-care. When Kaylan isn’t in the gym or at school, she can be found anywhere from Mud Runs and jumping out of airplanes to cooking and curling up with her two kitties at home
Kelly Becker, coach
How long coaching CrossFit: I got my Level 1 cert in June 2011 & I started coaching in early 2012. I’ve been part of the CFNF coaching team since June 2015.
Other coaching certifications: CrossFit Kids, AFAA Group Exercise Instructor
Athletic background/achievements: I grew up playing tennis. During college, I took up recreational running & after college, I continued running, including a handful of 10k races each year. In 2010, I started CrossFit by way of bootcamp. I planned on doing CrossFit ‘for 2 months’…..and apparently I’m a huge liar!
Favorite CrossFit movement or workout:I’m a body weight/cardio lover (I love burpees…I really do), but I do love me some shoulder-to-overhead.
Favorite workout or movement to coach: Fight Gone Bad is a goody – I love the energy in the gym during that WOD! “The Chief” is a close second!
In my spare time I enjoy: Going out to eat, being social, & attempting to catch up on sleep…4:15am wakeups don’t get any easier!
Favorite quote: “You are where you are in your life at any given point and time for a reason, though you may not know it yet”
Advice to new CrossFitters: Don’t worry about anybody else’s numbers on that whiteboard. As CrossFit cliché as it may sound, it really is just you against you! Also, once you learn your ‘skill set’ in the gym, have a rough strategy going into a workout. In addition to strategy, I typically set 2 goals for myself before a workout: my ‘lofty goal’ and my ‘realistic’ goal – and, on great days, you can bet I hit that lofty one!
Coach Lajuana Caldwell – Email Lajuana
I became a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach in 2002. It’s my passion to help people realize that being healthy, strong and fit is attainable for anyone who wants it. Through the years I have been able to see many transform their health and lives. I love that Crossfit incorporates different modules of training and is the most constantly challenging way to fitness I have experienced. I most look forward to bringing Crossfit to the younger generation. They have so much potential. I feel getting them to experience the gains of strength and fitness can have a positive impact in their lives from an early age.
