Kristal Fernandez

Assistant Powerlifting Coach

Hello, I am a graduate of The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley with a BS in Rehabilitation Services. My passion for fitness started through high school sports and continued to be a part of my life through adulthood via recreational fitness, until I discovered CrossFit in 2016. CrossFit has offered the competitive atmosphere and community team environment I had been missing. Since then I have spent the last 3 years competing in team and individual CrossFit competitions. This is my second year teaching ACL- Life skills at San Marcos High School. As a strength and conditioning coach for tennis my goal is to ensure that our athletes are equipped with the skills necessary for achieving academic, athletic and social success.
