Callie Smith    

Manger/Head Coach

About Callie: I’m originally from Pickford, a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I moved to the LP and attended GVSU. After completing my bachelors I moved to Kalamazoo to attend graduate school at WMU. I love being outside and exploring. I’m always down to hike, kayak, xc ski, rock climb, snowboard or learn a new sport. I grew up on a family farm so having sustainably sourced food and leaving a small carbon footprint is really important to me. I love spending time with my family, friends and dogs.  

How you started at CrossFit Torrent and what made you transition into coaching: I was a high school athlete and I played intramural sports in college but I was looking to get fitter and learn something new. I wanted a sense of community and accountability so I decided to be brave, follow a friend, and walk into a CrossFit gym. My first WOD crushed me but I did not look back! I loved sharing the things I was learning with family and friends so I decided to get my L1.  I started coaching right away and fell in love with helping people achieve their personal best.

My favorite part of being a coach is... Building relationships with members! I love getting to know people, assist in crushing their goals, and helping them set new ones.

"Murph"

Go-to Healthy snack: Raw veggies. Peppers, cucumbers and carrots are my favorites!
