Shelby Whitington



Hi All! My name is Shelby and I have played soccer for nearly 20 years. Throughout high school and college I played semi-professionally, represented the east coast region as a goalkeeper, and then played Division 1 at Longwood University. Soccer was my absolute passion my entire young life, and to improve my strength and on-field ability, I began lifting. Once I graduated college, I was immediately in search of a new team, a new coach, and a new way to spend my free time. I found CrossFit, and within minutes of walking into my first CrossFit gym I knew that it was what I needed. I suddenly had a family again, a team, a group of people who wanted to better themselves as badly as I did. I have been doing CrossFit for three years now. I compete regularly in RX competitions, Olympic Lifting (I won gold at my first meet, shout out to Lee for preparing me!) and I love moving heavy weight. I am now a high school teacher by day, and a soccer and CrossFit coach by night. I am very excited to be able to contribute to the ACF community!
