ERICA SPITZ

FULL-TIME COACH

Name:
Erica Spitz

Some people call me:
E, America

I Joined Fearless Athletics in:
August 2017. I started CrossFit in February 2011 in Lexington, KY and began coaching in December of that year. I moved to Philly August 2017 and started coaching for Fearless immediately!

My favorite movements:
Olympic lifts (Snatch and Clean & Jerk) and anything bodyweight! Pull-ups, handstands, toes to bar, pistols!

My favorite WOD:
“Diane” or any couplet that involves a barbell movement and body weight movement. I’m generally down for short, painful, “sprint” type workouts. Once it gets into the 12+ minute range I lose steam and interest.

The word Fearless means:
Fear. Less. It’s simple.
Be brave. Be bold. Be adventurous. Face what makes you uncomfortable and overcome!

My SMART goals:

  • Top 8 at 2018 USA Weightlifting Nationals
  • 2018 Mid Atlantic Regional Qualifier

Something you might not know about me:

I was a part of Team Maximus for 5 years (Regionals 2013-2017, Games 2014, 2015, 2017). I also placed top 10 in the 2014 and 2015 USA Weightlifting Nationals. I like to compete, what can i say?!
