Emily Reed is a small town lawyer with a CrossFit problem. She is a life long resident of Mountain Home, Arkansas, with a solo practice handling mostly family law issues and select criminal defense matters.
After several years of practicing law, it was at an annual meeting of lawyers that she looked around and realized her sedentary profession was killing her and her colleagues. Barely a casual jogger herself, she decided to try something new, and that’s when she saw The CrossFit Games on ESPN.
She found a local gym and joined. Six months or so later in 2014 she was at CrossFit Mayhem getting her Level 1 certification. She’s enjoyed coaching at her local affiliate, CrossFit Amend. She also has her Level 2 certification and some other neat papers from Crossfit HQ. She has also taken a stab at judging the big dogs at Central Regional and The Crossfit Games in 2017.
While she’s not super fit by any stretch, she is a super dog mom to her main man, Bubba.
