Coach Michaela Xavier
The sport of fitness has been part of my life since I was four years old with gymnastics in Czech Republic. Fitness is my passion. My career started after I met my husband, who became my mentor in personal training. His patient teaching style and many years experience in fitness helped me grow in my journey bringing enduring results to my clients. Becoming a personal trainer is such a blessing to me. The doors have been opened for me to continually expand my knowledge and potential within the current fitness revolution. I always believe in practicing what I preach, and be the best example, motivator, and fun-fitness trainer/coach. My dedication brings inspiration. Getting in shape and staying in shape is not easy; however, I believe I can present workouts that will motivate and let you achieve your goals faster than ever.
I am a CrossFit Level 2 Coach who leads by example and strives for virtuosity. I also hold CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Nutrition, CrossFit Mobility, CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Gymnastics Certifications.
I entered a few figure competitions and placed well in all of them, including a 3rd place 2008 Emerald Cup in Seattle. With me as your coach, you will work hard, have dedication, and stay consistent. Will you meet my standards when I am through with you? Set your personal goals, and live well for the rest of your life. Don't wait any longer!

I accidentally found CrossFit as a recreational soccer player when I signed up for personal training in February 2008 at a Gold’s Gym in York, Pa. The trainer with whom I was paired put me through CrossFit workouts and led me to CrossFit York later that year. At the time — with little athletic background to speak of — I could neither do a pull-up nor get much more than 45 lbs. over my head. Today, I have multiple Olympic-weightlifting competitions under my belt. I earned a bronze medal at the 2013 National Masters Weightlifting Championships and qualified for Pan American Masters. As well, I’ve been a coach to two 2013 National University Championships qualifiers.
As a coach, my goal is for you to have fun while learning technique so you can excel at CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting or whatever your heart desires—and, of course, for you to become fast, explosive and powerful.

I was introduced into CF and the CFSV community while playing rugby for the SJ Seahawks. As a rugger, we were given the opportunity to workout at CFSV once a week for free. After a few injuries while playing rugby, including a torn rotator cuff, I slowly phased out of the sport and used CrossFit to help me continue to stay fit and simultaneously rehab my shoulder. I developed a true passion for CrossFit, which eventually led to becoming a coach!
I use a combination of my athletic background (competitive experience in soccer, softball, volleyball, track, crew, and rugby), experience as a CrossFit athlete, and my professional background as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner to help you move better to move more, and do it pain free!

Coach Corey Anderson
"What is CrossFit?" Corey knows and she will enjoy telling you. Born in 1983 to parents who had just returned from intergalactic Travel Corey is the first of 9 children. Her two human children assist her in growing the CFSV CrossFit Kids program. Her 8 brothers are all word championship NASCAR drivers. In her spare time she tends bee hives and volunteers help for at-risk hipsters in the SF area. Her favorite color is polka dot and one day she hopes to pilot one of those aircraft carriers that can fly in the Avengers'. She started as an intern at our growing box and developed into a phenomenal certified CrossFit L1 coach with a big smile and a bright presence that can ignite Tesla coils.
