Sodus Bay, NY. (aka Upstate) “Never heard of it? Neither has anyone else.”
Coach Brooke crosses the bridge from her home in Tampa every single day just to vibe out at CrossFit9 – and that energy shows up in her coaching. This former runner traded her running shoes for lifters after multiple half marathons and countless 5ks, and hasn’t looked back since.
Brooke moved from New York to right to Florida after college, wanting somewhere she could boat year-round. (And it’s her work, too! The yachting industry keeps her suuuper busy.) But CrossFit provides a social break and outlet from her hoppin’ work schedule.
“CrossFit is my passion, my stress reliever, and how I met most of my best friends.”
Look forward to Brooke’s late afternoon workouts, jamming out to early 2000’s hiphop or pop, slamming weights around, and having a damn good time doing it.
Her mission? “To encourage our athletes be the best versions of themselves and celebrate the small progressions.”
At a party you’ll find her…
“Bartending! I was a pro in college.”

“Welp, I live on the other side of the bay. St Pete residents infamously think they will contract a disease by crossing the bridge to the Tampa side but… Bern’s, duh!”
“Two dogs. Newman – Morkie, Kramer – Yorkie.”
Brooke geeks out on…
“Boating is my thing, ask me about it! Buying, selling, wanna meet at Egmont? That’s where I spend most Saturdays. Look for the cobalt blue and lime green center console!”
