Coach and Owner Rachel Krumm is a 2011 business graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, where she was a 4 year scholarship athlete for the Rams DI Field Hockey team. Being active her entire life, she was searching for something after college with the same competitive nature she was raised in…that’s when her friend dragger her into her first box. She got her ass kicked and never looked back. Since that day she has used her time to learn as much about the “sport of fitness” as she can; from the Olympic lifts to gymnastic movements, endurance metcons to sprints; her enthusiasm to compete is met only by her love of coaching and teaching.
Since the 4 years she has participated in CrossFit, Rachel has competed in local competitions as well as National competitions. She competed in the CrossFit Games Regionals in 2013 and 2015, the 2015 Superfit Games Pro Championship, as well as qualified for the 2014 National Weightlifting Championship.
SoGo CrossFit has been a long time in the making, and she’s happy to be opening the doors to anyone and everyone who wants the opportunity to be a part of a great community and family.

She’s played sports all her life from grade school softball to 4 years of rowing, softball and skiing at VT. Until CrossFit, she spent her time in the Construction Field as an Estimator and Project Manager.
It all started with being dragged to a Saturday CrossFit wod with a friend back in 2008…and being humbled by doing pull ups with the largest band in the place. Her husband and she began CrossFit together, started coaching in 2009, opened their first box in 2013 and their next box in 2016.
