Please welcome Coach Jodi Wernikoff!
Jodi Wernikoff – Coach
Originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Jodi has always been an avid athlete since an early age playing soccer, softball, and running cross-country. Jodi earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies at the University of St. Francis. When Jodi isn’t coaching or squeezing in a WOD, she works at the VA as a Physician Assistant, as well as serving in the Army Reserves as a Medical Officer. In college, Jodi began competing in endurance sports and has since competed competitively with the All Army Triathlon Team as well as the Army 10 Miler Team. CrossFit entered Jodi’s life in 2012 while on a deployment in Afghanistan. Just as many people do, Jodi was hooked after her first workout and she quickly became addicted to the community, athleticism, and drive that defines the CrossFit way of life. Jodi earned her CrossFit Level 1 trainer in 2014, and looks forward to every day she steps into the box and is able to help athletes evolve in their confidence, achieve new milestones and master new skills…doing things which they once never believed they were capable of.
Coach Jodi will be splitting duties with Coach Lucas on Saturday mornings so make sure you catch one of her classes then and welcome her to the staff!
