Ann has always had an innate passion for health and fitness. A marketing executive by day, Ann always knew she needed to be involved in the fitness industry in a larger way. In comes Coach Bernie in the spring of 2011, changing her life forever and setting her on the path of fulfilling that lifelong goal. Just one year later, together with Coach Stephen, they jointly opened the doors of CrossFit Sanctuary. The box became a haven where Ann – who had always loved lifting weights, but struggled to stay committed to a typical gym schedule – developed a new found love for her workout routine thanks to the supportive community and encouragement of the CrossFit Sanctuary members.
Ann loves the “No Man Left Behind” community that makes CrossFit, well, CrossFit! She believes in paying it forward and strives to inspire others to get involved in the sport, as Bernie did for her. As someone who manages the daily requirements of an autoimmune disease, Ann Feldstein knows first-hand how the powers of diet, exercise, and mindfulness have the ability to change one’s life. By harnessing these tools, she has become the master of her body and mind. Since discovering the untapped potential of her personal wellness journey, Ann has become a certified Health & Wellness Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to help others reach their health and fitness goals too. Like the environment they created at CrossFit Sanctuary, the key to Ann’s approach is the safe, supportive space she creates which enables her clients to confidently identify their areas of opportunity and take real action. Ann is mom to a rescue pup named Bali and in her spare time, she loves to travel, hike, cook and of course, talk about CrossFit!
