Mary Ann Brown

Fitness Director 
CFL2

I have been involved in the fitness industry for 25+ years. Beginning as a highschool track athlete turned competitive bodybuilder, I learned very early that my calling was in sports and fitness.

 

I graduated from SIUE with a Bachelors in Kinesiology and Community Health. I started as a personal trainer and was later introduced to CrossFit which sparked my love of group fitness. In 2012 I opened our garage gym to begin coaching classes and in 2019 I purchased a CrossFit affiliate. Combining both of these communities allowed me to further pursue my passion of helping others find their inner athlete by doing things they never thought possible.

 

When I’m not in the gym coaching, I’m a mom and LEO wife who enjoys glamping around the country with my family.
