Trainer Introduction

Emily Skaj

Emily transplanted to Syracuse, NY from Tempe, AZ and wanted to find a gym that had a welcoming community, experienced coaches and constant variety in classes and programs.

She found that at CCF and wanted to become even more involved, so she became part of the coaching staff.  Emily has a Bachelor’s of science from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse and 7 years of corporate wellness experience in Arizona which evolved into her owning her own personal/group training gym.  She has “dabbled” in many sports: swimming, soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country, triathlons, trail races, Ragnars, obstacle races.  Having played many sports, Emily said that was her rational for falling in love with Crossfit.  She loves guessing what the workout will be each day and how it can test her.

“I have been in many, many gyms that specialize in yoga, pilates, boxing, HIIT, personal training, cardio, etc., and to me, those specialties don’t really matter unless you have a great community of people/members, and great leaders. I came to CCF because the people that walk in the doors every day are genuine, fun and ready to work hard, EVERY day.  That is what truly motivates me and makes me come to CCF with a smile on my face ready to make it the best 1 hour of our members’ day.”
