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!

Th word Fearless means:

Fear. Less. It’s simple.

Be brave. Be bold. Be adventurous. Face what makes you uncomfortable and overcome!

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.

My SMART goals:

Top 8 at 2018 USA Weightlifting Nationals

2018 Mid Atlantic Regional Qualifier
