Nicole Christensen started CrossFit Roots out of her one-car garage in 2008. Since that time, she and her husband Eric have grown Roots into a 10,000 square foot facility with an accomplished and passionate team of eight full-time coaches and staff. In 2009 she was hired to the CrossFit Headquarters traveling Seminar Staff. She is now a flowmaster for the CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Level 2 Certificate Courses and travels around the world to teach and coach CrossFit. Nicole earned her CrossFit Level 4 Certification in 2014 and is one of only 52 individuals worldwide to hold this distinction.

Nicole has an extensive competitive background and has competed in five of the last seven regionals (she was pregnant in 2012 and 2015), placing in the top ten in four times.  Her passion for coaching comes from a deep-seated belief that every individual has the potential to thrive through CrossFit and a love for the art and science of the coaching profession.
