About Coach Emily Lasko
Emily took her first CrossFit class at CrossFit Grandview shortly after graduating college and was immediately hooked. Growing up a gymnast, she was instantly drawn to the programming, energy, and competitiveness that she knew could not be found anywhere else. After spending her first four years post college at a branding and marketing agency, Emily pivoted and dove deep into health and fitness. As an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, she began training clients one on one and soon added group training, coaching classes of 35+ people. After being offered a role as Studio Manager, Emily spent a couple years coaching classes and managing all gym and studio operations. While pursuing these paths that were adding skills and value to what she knew she wanted to do, teaching people to realize what's possible with the right lifestyle and fitness routine, she kept her eyes set on the day she'd bring coaching CrossFit into that mix.
Emily’s personal fitness accomplishments include placing in the top ten in the Ohio Spartan Beast, qualifying her to compete in the Spartan Regional World Championship in West Virginia later that summer. She has since competed in multiple other Spartan, obstacle, and traditional endurance races. CrossFit helped her prepare for the unknowable when it came to racing, and helped her break through mental and physical barriers she didn’t know she had. Whatever the goals and whatever the experience level, Emily firmly believes there is something for everyone with CrossFit and the principles on which it was founded. And she is ready to push people to figure out what that means for themselves.
