Alicia Brainard-Corrigan

I started my CrossFit journey at the end of 2018 by recommendation of a friend. I started as an athlete at CrossFit Prescott and then moved to the east valley. After getting settled with the fast pace of the Valley and finishing massage school I landed at CrossFit XA. Being overweight and the fear of being judged I was terrified, but the coaching staff at XA along with the athletes openly welcomed me and helped me see that this is a journey.

Not only have I come a very long way physically, but also mentally and emotionally. I am now able to share this journey with my teenage daughter, which has been an amazing journey in itself. I desired to share what the coaching staff at XA has given me and, because of that, I became a Level-1 coach in October of 2022. I may be new to the coaching and have more to learn but I am willing to learn and continue on with education to help athletes and myself.
