CrossFit Santa Rosa

For most of us a ‘Gym’ is a place to lose some weight, get fit and develop the base fitness to live a larger life.  When we join a globo-gym, we feel lost and unsupported.  But at Crossfit Santa Rosa:

  • Our community is different.
  • Our coaches are different. 
  • Your results will be different.  

We understand the challenge of getting up off the couch and into the gym because we have lived it ourselves.

Whether your goals are to lose some weight or just be a more active human, we can help!

“SRSC is helping to correct my overall health and fitness. When I first got there they assessed where I was at and plotted a course that would correct my weaknesses…These people are skilled at what they do and care about helping you get positive results.” – Jess Y.

Eric Kroh

CrossFit Trainer

Eric started at SRSC as a client in the fall of 2016 and is now a trainer.

Having ran track throughout high school, he was looking for something to fuel his active and competitive spirit. Eric found CrossFit and SRSC and was immediately hooked. After encouragement and mentoring from Nikee, Eric earned his CF-L1, interned at SRSC and is now a trainer.

Jessica Edwards

CrossFit Trainer

I joined CrossFit Santa Rosa in 2016 with a little (ok, A LOT) of pushing from fellow Coach, Rob Izzo.  I hesitated to join because I kept saying that I was “too out of shape” to do CrossFit.  I found out quickly that was 100% NOT TRUE.  I fell in love with CrossFit Santa Rosa and its members almost immediately.

Noticing my ability to connect with the fellow members and seeing my love for the sport, the owners of CFSR approached me about joining the coaching team.  I immediately jumped at the opportunity and became a CrossFit L1 Trainer in February 2019.

In addition to my time coaching and working out at CFSR, I work full-time as the GM of a winery in Sonoma County.  My spare time is dedicated to hanging out with my friends and food prepping to keep my macros on point!

I look forward to working with you and feel free to stop me anytime to talk about CrossFit, Macros, or Wine!

Eric "Eddie" Edwards

CrossFit Trainer

Eric first joined CrossFit Santa Rosa as a client in 2017 after being disillusioned by a globo-gym scene and resigned to live a life without fitness as a pillar. Eric quickly became hooked by the workouts and community he found within CFSR’s walls and has actively attended and chased his goals ever since.

After seeing an incredible transformation over 2 years at CFSR, Eric was encouraged by Rob, Nikee and Dan to move into a coaching role by obtaining his CF-L1 so he would be able to help others achieve the success he has experienced.

Breanna Christenson

Massage Therapist

Breanna’s nature to help and support others fueled her pursuit in becoming a California Certified Neuromuscular Massage Therapist and to focus on educating clients about the soreness and pain they are experiencing.

Breanna graduated in May of 2013 with a certificate in Neuromuscular Massage Therapy.  Breanna also did an externship at Sonoma State University’s Sports Medicine, program which only fed her drive to gain more knowledge about the working human body and the effect massage had on collegiate athletes. Through Breanna’s 15-year athletic career, she has seen and experienced how injuries and stress from daily life can leave you sitting on the sidelines.

Her refreshing therapeutic massage is a great tool to prevent injuries by prolonging muscle flexibility, maintaining the immune system at an optimal state of balance, and increasing the speed of recovery by sustaining healthy tissues. Improvements to immune health and a noticeable increase in an overall sense of well-being are just a few results from massage therapy.
