Hey! My name is Holly Cano and I am currently serving on active duty at Fort Campbell. I am married to a Soldier and we have three children. My relationship with CrossFit began in February 2012. Prior to this, I had ran track, played basketball, volleyball, and was a cheerleader, never lifting a single weight. I joined the Army and then in 2007 I was diagnosed with runner’s knee. It was a bone abnormality causing extreme pain when I would run. Then it was determined I would no longer run on the Army Physical Fitness Test. Fast-forward a couple years and one of the companies in my unit held a two week “On Ramp” type course on CrossFit and I was convinced into attending. I had no idea what CrossFit really was and I was seriously nervous about attending because I just had been cleared to return to my regular workout routine after hip surgery rehabilitation. After attending the course, I began to workout with the coaches during their morning and lunch workouts. As I became more comfortable with Crossfit, the more I fell in love with it! Just after four months and accomplishing my first kipping pull-up, I attended the Level 1 Course out at Valley Crossfit, CA.
I am continually amazed at all the possibilities that CrossFit has for everyone. CrossFit has helped me return to running after four years on restriction. I no longer have the joint pain I had. CrossFit has changed my views on fitness and I want to help others find their fitness passion. The CrossFit community is like no other. Everyone is your teammate, no matter what your level of CrossFit is. I am so excited to be coaching at the Lab and hope I can help others in the community like CrossFit has helped me!
