BIO

Alyssa came to CrossFit after years as an athlete, then years of recovery from a very serious injury. She also landed here after working as a sexuality and relationship advocate, digging into meaty issues around shame, agency and expectations. Alyssa’s tough-love and outspoken nature landed her in the national spotlight as a writer and speaker about body-issues, and as a frequent guest on New Day Northwest, in Seattle, speaking about fitness and body myths. You can check out her writing on everything under the sun on her eponymous blog.

All of those things combine to make private sessions with Alyssa as much about life-coaching as anything else. In fact, even if “all your doing” is lifting with her, she’s gonna dig deep into fears, expectations and how to control inner chaos in order to find pure power. (She does not do small talk. Like, that setting simply wasn’t installed when the factory assembled her.) Generally speaking, Alyssa’s strength is general overhauls and jumpstarts. She likes working with people who are doing a deep-dig into their bodies, getting out of ruts, facing change, recovering from injury and dealing with fear.

She also likes working with serious Olympic Weightlifters, whether you want to compete or not, though she has a solid stable of folks who compete nationally.
Certifications: CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Level 2, USA Weightlifting Level 1, CrossFit Kettlebells, CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Striking

Fitness Goal Setting

It’s hard to find focus on who you really are and what really brings you joy when the media around us is just telling us that we should be skinny and sexy. Alyssa will work with you to identify what brings you joy, as well as what fears hold you back, and design a set of goals that can empower you. At the end of 3 sessions you will have a plan of attack that will include small achievable goals, and at least one stretch goal, as well as a small list of habits to form and habits to break. Each session is 45 minutes, with expected email and phone follow-up.

3 Sessions – $240
5 Sessions – $375
30-minute rechargers – $40

Overall Overhauls

Stuck in a rut and don’t even have any idea how to start getting out? Let’s dig deep into all of it: nutrition, fitness, friends, finances, and find some handholds to get you unstuck. There’s no one-size fits all approach here, and these sessions are not intended to be a lifelong relationship. Alyssa will work to set you on a path from which you can create a more tangible action plan. This may feed into a goal-setting series, and often leads to referrals to experts in whatever area is holding you back. Alyssa is not a magician, just a very well-connected and powerful spark-plug for your soul.

Olympic Weightlifting

Alyssa’s true fitness love is Olympic Weightlifting. (Not just because one of the lifts is called The Snatch.)  She has experience training athletes from youth to “masters” (which is code for “kinda old people.”) The chance to really get to know a lifter and how they move, where their weaknesses and strengths lie, and then design a program for them is the stuff of tingles. She is willing to travel to meets, as well as coach one-on-one in the gym. It’s all up for discussion, depending on the needs and desires of the athlete.

Technique tune-up: 1-hour session to fix one lift – $60
Programming: $60 / month  (this requires a prior tune-up session so that Alyssa can evaluate your movement, completed before programming.)
On-going private coaching: email alyssaroyse@gmail.com to discuss frequency and goals.

Workshops & Parties

Some of the best conversations and biggest breakthroughs happen with friends. But sometimes we need someone to help guide the conversation and loosed everyone up. These private get-togethers happen in your home, you provide snacks and drinks, and Alyssa will come facilitate a talk about whatever you want related to bodies. Media myths? Goal setting? Shame and fear reduction? Body acceptance? You name it. Having done lots of these, the best size is at least 6 people, no more than 10. But beyond that, it’s up to you. Email alyssaroyse@gmail.com to set up a private workshop.

Private workshops: 2-hours / $40 per person (minimum 6 people, maximum 10)
