Morgan Bratton is a part-time coach at CrossFit SoCo. While her Level-1 certification is a recent advancement, her relationship with health and fitness has always been a major part of her life. Along with CrossFit, Morgan has competed and participated in other physical disciplines such as dance, cross country and track, Krav Maga, and Ultimate Frisbee. When Morgan began her career as a secondary English teacher, she knew she needed something that gave her the most benefit in a very limited schedule. Her friend introduced her to CrossFit Thousand Oaks and It was a perfect fairy tale ending with love at first WOD. With CrossFit, Morgan quickly discovered that this approach to health and fitness transcended just breaking a sweat: she came for the work out but stayed for the mental and emotional impact the CrossFit pedagogy has on an athlete. The culture of friendship, camaraderie, and growth at the heart of any successful CrossFit box is the most important element that keeps athletes engaged and hungry for more. To Morgan, being an athlete is more than just being strong, fast, or flexible; it’s about mindset, determination, discipline, and the joy of self-discovery. It’s the athlete mentality CrossFit cultivates and her life long goal of helping others that inspired Morgan to go beyond just being a member, but a coach that inspires others to be better everyday.
