Listen on iTunes.     Listen on Stitcher.


In this HER Body™ episode Alex chats with gym owner and former CrossFit Games competitor, Shana Alverson, about the experiences they have working with clients and the various ways in which they modify the manner in which they communicate with their different clients.

Shana also discussed the challenges that came from focusing too much of her life to competing, the detrimental affects it had on her body and health, and why she decided to rebrand her gym away from the crossfit name.

Shana Alverson has been devoted to exercise and fitness since the age of 15. She is a 6-time regional and 4-time CrossFit Games individual competitor – and she became a professional athlete when she was signed to the Grid League’s Philly Founders in 2014. Along with her 20 years of teaching exercise, Shana has attended CrossFit’s Level 1 and Level 2 certifications and holds multiple certificates in Running Technique, Weightlifting, Programming, and Gymnastics and is the Owner and Head Trainer at Move Functional Fitness.
