ERIKA VARRIALE

GENERAL MANAGER & HEAD COACH

Erika grew up in New Jersey and has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Science from Rutgers University. She and her husband, Chris, moved to NC when he was assigned to Camp Lejeune. Her interest in CrossFit began when Chris was deployed in Afghanistan. CrossFit provided the mental focus and physical strength Erika needed to get through Chris’s deployment and also gave them a common interest, sharing the workouts of the day and PRs. Athletics have always been a part of her life; from varsity volleyball, collegiate crew, and later earning two Concept2 American Rowing Records in her age division.

 

Erika is not new to management. Before moving to NC, she held a management position with a biotech pharmaceutical company, subsequently set up an LLC to work remotely and launched a direct marketing business. Prior to joining CrossFit Reignited, Erika coached at and managed Down East CrossFit for four years and joined us in August 2017 where she is a head coach and oversees operations for all four CrossFit Reignited facilities.

 

Erika is a CrossFit Level 2 trainer. In her spare time she is known to chase after homeless kittens and rescue stranded baby turtles on the beaches.

STEPHANIE SIMMONS

MANAGER & HEAD COACH

Steph grew up in Hickory, NC playing every sport she could while trying to keep up with her talented brothers, Rob and Chuck. She attended Wingate University where she played collegiate softball for the Bulldogs, frequently conducted independent research in multiple labs and ultimately received her Bachelor of Science in Biology with University Honors.

 

Chasing a childhood dream, Steph moved into the marine research field by investigating jellyfish musculature and receiving her Master of Science in Marine Biology from UNC Wilmington. During this time, she fell in love with CrossFit and sought out her L1 coaching accreditation as well as CPR/AED/first aid certifications and began coaching part time.

 

Steph currently works as a Project Coordinator for East Main Evaluation and Consulting, but enjoys coaching CrossFit classes at CFR after work as a way to give back to the awesome community that supports her competitive ventures! In 2017, she competed in multiple big team events including Wodapalooza, the Granite Games and the Atlantic Regionals. Steph hopes to gain the strength and skills needed to compete at Regionals with her CFR teammates again this year!
