Shandra began her athletic career as a competitive swimmer seven minutes before her twin sister, Coach Shana. Shandra swam Division III swimming at Widener University and to date still maintains many of the school records. After swimming, Shandra began searching for something to fill her competitive fitness void. She spent long hours in the gym with limited results until she discovered CrossFit. She found what had been missing; a supportive community with friendly competition and true fitness. If Shandra is not at the box working out you might find her kayaking, biking, or running somewhere.

Lizzy Kuna

InfinitYoga Teacher

Vinyasa Focused

Lizzy was introduced to dance in her toddler years. She studied ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap and lyrical. When she was 22 years old she was introduced to yoga as a way of maintaining her flexibility after her years of competitive dance were over. 

In 2014 Lizzy discovered CrossFit when she decided to step away from the gym and into a box. It was unlike any other type of workout she experienced. CrossFit incorporated her love of dynamic movement found in dance with an attention to alignment found in yoga.

Lizzy holds her Yoga Teacher certification at the 200-hour level from InfinitYOGA.

Lizzy believes in teaching yoga for athletes instead of to athletes. Her classes are designed to develop an athlete’s mobility, find proper alignment, gain balance and help them be mentally ready for their next workout.  She structures her class around the week’s programmed WODs in order to help relieve any sore muscles and overall body fatigue.
