Ali McCracken

Position: Co-Owner & Head Coach

I have always been active! Competitive gymnastics was my first love. When I stopped competing at 14, just a year later I began to coach gymnastics. It was then that I realized that I wanted to “teach” something. I completed a teaching degree at Appalachian State, but realized quickly that the classroom was not for me. During that time I had a son, and I discovered CrossFit. I was instantly hooked to the styles of workouts as well as the community in the gym. I started coaching CrossFit in 2012. I quickly became competitive in Olympic Weightlifting, and succeeded in my goals of getting to the National Level: American Open 2014, USAW Nationals 2015, and American Open 2016. During that time, I also found a strong CrossFit team at CrossFit Spartanburg. We took a team to Regionals in 2015 and 2018. I now have my CF Level 2 Certificate, and have plans to grow and expand with more certifications! CrossFit changed my life for the better, and owning a gym is icing on that cake. My main goal is to “make people better” in all aspects! We foster a strong community, have a phenomenal coaching staff who focus on technique and sound movement, and we LOVE what we do!
