Brittany Marsh


Brittany’s appearance maybe unassuming, but she is a fierce athlete, and a brilliant coach, who is able to improve any athlete in a matter of seconds.  Brittany was introduced to CrossFit in 2011 through the encouragement of friends in hopes of making training for surfing and triathalons more efficient and fun.  She was a high school soccer, track and swimming athlete as well as a Division 1 swim athlete at UC Irvine.  Brittany has swam and coached for a number of elite swim clubs across the country as well as coached surfing in both Australia and in the U.S. 

Brittany is our marketing extraordinaire; facilitating our marketing plans, social media presence as well as member and community relationship development.  Her infectious smile and laugh will make you feel welcome the moment you meet her.  Currently working for Juggernaut Training Systems, Brittany is an established athlete as well as a coach, especially in the field of weightlifting. 

There is a je ne sais quoi about Brittany and her zest for life and adventure.  She loves how people naturally rally together in CrossFit and want you to succeed just as much as, and sometimes even more than, you do.  When she is not working or working out, she is jumping of cliffs, hiking off trails, or planning a motorcycle adventure!
