NorCal Sectional: Athlete Profile - Laurie Galassi
Capacity in the gymnastic elements of CrossFit is not easy to come by... for most. Laurie Galassi started Crossfit march of 2009, and took to it rapidly. "I competed in artistic gymnastics for 5 years (ages 8-13). I competed in power tumbling at the elite level for 3 years. I performed in a circus troupe in San Jose for 6 years, and I was what would be considered an aerialist... I have been coaching gymnastics for 14 years, and I currently coach a competitive team as my full time job."
