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.

Nikee Huntington

Owner and Head Coach

HI! I’m Nikee, Owner and Head Coach at CrossFit Santa Rosa Strength and Conditioning. I originally joined the community as a client in 2014 and immediately fell in love with CrossFit as a sport. I followed my passion to it’s core and purchased the gym from the original owner, Joanna Sapir in 2017.

Joanna was mentored by James Fitzgerald, founder of OPEX Fitness and created a thriving gym through utilizing a systematic approach to programming. She took me under her wing and mentored me in both business management and exercise programming – talk about getting lucky! Her brilliant Custom Program Membership is what separates our gym from the others.

With our Custom Program Membership, I take time to communicate with and understand each member’s fitness/health goals. I take an individualized approach to programming and design specific, progressive, programs to help each member achieve fitness success.

Personally, I love throwing a heavy barbell around and enjoy participating in CrossFit competitions. Outside of the gym, I stay busy with my fiance, Ryan, and our blended family of five children. I also enjoy anything outdoors and studying the Bible.

Eric Kroh

CrossFit Trainer and Custom Program Coach

Hey! I’m Eric! I started at CFSR|SRSC as a client in the fall of 2016 and am now a trainer.

Having ran track throughout high school, I was looking for something to fuel my active and competitive spirit. I found CrossFit and SRSC and was immediately hooked. After encouragement and mentoring from Nikee, I completed an internship and then I earned my CF-L1.

Jessica Edwards

CrossFit Trainer

I joined CrossFit Santa Rosa in 2016 with some pushing from a fellow coach.  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

“Eddie” here! I 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. I quickly became hooked by the workouts and community found within CFSR’s walls and have actively attended and chased my goals ever since.

After seeing an incredible transformation over 2 years at CFSR, I was encouraged by Nikee to move into a coaching role by obtaining my CF-L1 so I would be able to help others achieve the success I have experienced.
