Coach Kenzi Sawyer brings 3 years of CrossFit experience to CrossFit Knoxville's coaching staff. With a background in physical health and recreation, she gained a passion for wellness in college where she was a volleyball player and introduced to CrossFit. Through this background, Kenzi grew to specialize in holistic wellness, yoga, and meditation. She says, "Holistic wellness is my passion. To me, one cannot become their best self until they have harnessed the power of the mind, body, and spirit harmoniously with the intent to never stop growing." Kenzi finds that her favorite part about coaching is not the exercise itself, but the value brought by shared experiences. "The sense of community and sharing experiences with like-minded people who aim to grow, value their health, pursue their capabilities, and desire longevity is important," she says. "Through my own fitness journey, I have realized that the right mind set mixed with discipline and persistence is all you need to get anything you want in life, though it does speed up the process if you have supportive people on your team."
