Karolin Nilsson

KarolinKarolin’s athletic career has jumped a little all over; as a little girl she started horseback riding, moved to soccer throughout high school, she also tried ice hockey, boxing and football. Due to a injured knee from soccer she had to find a new health path and started gym classes. She tried such a variety in an effort to find something she loved and could compete in.

Karolin started CrossFit 2012 at Gold’s Gym and frankly hated it. Her first workout was “Fran”, 95lbs thrusters and jumping pull-ups, 20 min later she never wanted to do CrossFit again. It wasn’t until several weeks later that she fell in love with CrossFit and the community it brought when a friend asked her to join his team for a throwdown at CrossFit Balance Thomas Circle.

CrossFit has definitely changed her life in a very positive way inside and outside the gym. Karolin’s passion as a coach is to help people reach their fitness goals and especially in the area of nutrition. She strives to motivate and inspire other people to tackle weaknesses without fear, get stronger mentally and emotionally which stems from a base of dedication, consistency and goal setting in their daily routines.
