Finding CrossFit was a defining moment in Merrilee’s life. She always had an interest in health and exercise, but had struggled to find a true sense of fitness. “I credit CrossFit, in combination with eating Paleo, and it’s supportive community with helping me achieve the body image I have always wanted - while never feeling healthier or stronger”. Since then, educating others and helping them in their own quests for health has become her personal and professional goal.
Along side CrossFit, Merrilee is also trained in Vinyasa Power Yoga and finds that yoga is the perfect compliment to a CrossFit athlete’s program by increasing focus, balance and flexibility.
Merrilee is an owner of CrossFit Main Line and is from Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. She was a standout field hockey goalkeeper at Villa Maria Academy, going on to play for Wake Forest University where she helped the Deacs win two National Championships.
