MAGGIE SHAFFER

Maggie was born in Baton Rouge, LA but was raised in Houston, TX until relocating to Dallas, TX after receiving her Bachelors in Psychology from Sam Houston State University. She began her graduate work at TCU in Fort Worth, Tx in Behavioral Neuroscience and then decided to start a family with her husband in Dallas.

In 2012 Maggie was introduced to the sport of CrossFit. In 2013 she attended her Level-1 seminar and quickly felt that coaching was her passion. Since then she has received her Level-2 CrossFit certification and continues to attend as many CrossFit and nutrition seminars as possible in order to become the most effective coach she can be. She has been coaching CrossFit in Dallas since September of 2013.

Maggie began her internship with Black Iron Nutrition in the Spring of 2017 and believes in the power of food and nutrition in regards to mental and physical health. She is excited to be on staff with Black Iron Nutrition and looks forward to helping both men and women of all backgrounds find balance with food, family, and fitness while enjoying life to it’s fullest. 

Maggie offers unique insight to nutrition as a parent, as she is the only coach with children.
