Mee Lee

Mee Lee

CrossFit Group Coach/Personal Trainer

Despite the fact that I wasn’t groomed to be an a high level athlete as a child, through hard work & discipline I’ve made greater athletic gains at BSCF than ever before. It’s awesome pushing my physical limits but it’s also a joy to coach & equip others to do likewise, especially those coming from similar “nonathletic” backgrounds. The transformations are truly inspiring and go beyond just the physical. Take it from the ultimate ex-cardio queen & junk food junkie, shunning barbells & weights as if they were the plague. Who knew I would be so entrenched in such a current love affair with paleo-eating, weightlifting, and gymnastics, even the dreaded burpee?! Trust me, you too will come to love them all, in your own way, in due time. THE HEART OF THE MATTER: YES, CrossFit is a sick training program, and YES, CrossFit makes me a better surfer & allaround athlete, but most importantly, CrossFit is just another means to more effectively (and in many ways literally) live out the truth found in 1 Corinthians 9:23-27. Fighting!

Lindsay Klipping

Lindsay Klipping

Nutrition Coach/ Group CrossFit Coach /

Lindsay began CrossFit in 2009 and has been part of BSCF since 2011. She fell in love with the CrossFit methodology and community during her first workout and has been an avid proponent since. As a self-proclaimed “gym rat”, CrossFit was the missing link in her fitness journey, providing the constantly varied excitement that was sorely lacking in her traditional gym routine. She feels so fortunate to be part of the BSCF family and to have the opportunity to share in the exhilaration of accomplishment as members achieve new milestones and expand their boundaries of what they believe to be possible.
