Being a high school and college athlete taught Kate “OATIE” the value of being part of a team. Several years after college, trying out various types of fitness, Oatie realized she missed the team/family atmosphere.. she missed community fitness. In 2012 her journey with CrossFit started when she joined Carport CrossFit in Irondale, AL. As her fitness journey progressed so did her love of CF methodology. In 2018 Oatie’s desire to help others with their fitness goals led her to obtain her CF-L1 and she began coaching at her home gym. Oatie looks forward to more training opportunities and sharing her knowledge and zest with her new home gym, CrossFit Mudtown. She is married (Jen) and they have 2 dog kids, Olive and Ojai.
