Growing up, sports have always played a huge role in Rychia’s life. She was a gymnast for thirteen years and played volleyball, basketball and track at Gibraltar High School in Fish Creek, WI. She then went on to graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. In college, she was a heptathlete and a pole vaulter and has always enjoyed training and having a goal to work towards. Shortly before graduating college, she was looking for her next challenge. CrossFit had always intrigued her, so she decided to give it a shot and has been hooked ever since. In addition to coaching CrossFit, she is an Assistant Track and Field coach at Edgewood College and is working towards receiving her Masters in Science Education. She loves helping challenge people to better themselves every day and hopes to positively impact others the way her coaches did for her. She also loves to laugh, so tell her your best (or worst) joke when you see her.
