Try as you might, Megan Holmes is a tough lady to catch. As a youngster in Baxter, Minnesota, she was an avid runner racking up championships as early as the second grade. In high school & college, Megan was a team captain as well. She was a 12-time Cross-country Track & Field letter winner. This fleet-footed woman racked up All-Conference, All-Section, and All-State honors.

Megan made the move to St. Pete after college and was looking for a way to make new friends. She happened upon CrossFit9 by chance. She says she’d never felt so welcome. After her first CrossFit Open, she was hooked for good.

Nowadays Megan writes for a local newspaper, but when she’s not getting the scoop on the local business community, she’s coaching at CrossFit9 at sunrise and sunset.

Megan says she often comes off as a no-nonsense lady, but she’s ready to talk your ear off about the right topics.  “I get really focused at CrossFit9. But I can actually be a goofball. I love music, dancing, singing and going to concerts. I also love books, movies and stories in every form.”
