I grew up being very active in youth sports such as basketball and soccer. I played NCAA Division I Soccer at University of Hartford and eventually in a Semi-Professional Women's Soccer League in Colorado.
I taught Special Education for eight years at the Middle School level, coached elite competitive soccer teams as well as JV and Varsity Girls Soccer. At one point I created and ran a Youth Soccer Academy as well.
I didn't find CrossFit until I was 40 years old and a mother of a 10 year old special needs boy. CrossFit soon became a great outlet for me both mentally and physically. It has allowed me to gain physical strength in order to lift and carry my son who is immobile.
I quickly got my CrossFit Coaching certificates to coach adults and youth. I absolutely love to help and serve others!!! CrossFit has had such a positive impact on my life and I love that I can pass it on to others!

I grew up playing any sport I could get my hands on and making any and everything else into a sport. I joined my first CrossFit box the year after I graduated High School and have never looked back! Over the past 7 years, I've taught group fitness classes and yoga; coached boys and girls middle school basketball; and remained an active participant in CrossFit, running, and recreational sports leagues.
My career as a speach-language pathologist has coupled with my lifelong love for fitness to shape me into the coach, trainer, and leader I am today. Health and sucess for everyone is my primary goal. I believe that scaling movements to an athletel's current needs is critical to ensuring safety and success while fostering an environment that promotes self-confidence and self-actualization.
Pain-Free Performance Specialist Certification
Hi there, I'm Krissy Houck - a wife, mother of three, CrossFit coach, and lifelong Alaskan. Growing up in Anchorage, I played softball and basketball, developing a competitive side that has made me love CrossFit even more.
In 2016, I discovered CrossFit and it quickly became a passion of mine. I love the challenge it presents and how it pushes me to be physically and mentally stronger. My favorite movements in CrossFit involve a barbell, and I have a particular passion for doing and teaching Olympic lifting. Coaching both adults and teens is something I take great pride in, and I am dedicated to helping others achieve their fitness goals.
I strongly believe that health and wellness are essential components of a fulfilling life, and I advocate for this in everything I do. When I'm not coaching, you can find me spending time with my family and friends, hiking, and exploring the beautiful outdoors of Alaska.
I’m a CrossFit coach and mom of two amazing girls living in Anchorage, Alaska. Growing up here, I've always had a love for fitness, and I found myself drawn to sports and staying active from a young age. Coaching junior high and high school cheerleading teams sparked my passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals.
But it wasn't until 2016 that I discovered CrossFit, and let me tell you, I was immediately hooked. The challenge that CrossFit presents, both physically and mentally, has helped me grow in ways I never thought possible. I find great joy in sharing my knowledge and encouraging others on their fitness journeys.
The CrossFit community in Anchorage is amazing, and I'm grateful to be an active member. From local competitions to community events, I love being a part of the CrossFit community and seeing others succeed. When I'm not coaching or working out, I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring all that Alaska has to offer.
Highly qualified and experienced coaches are ready to support you in a positive community setting. All are welcome at CrossFit Anchorage!
