SOPHIE STRAITH

Sophie has been active her whole life. As a child, she participated in a variety of different activities including dance and mixed martial arts. By age 13, with hard work and dedication, Sophie earned her 3rd Degree Black Belt and became a Tae Kwon Do instructor. 

In 2008, Sophie was introduced to CrossFit and quickly realized that this sport provided the ideal challenge both physically and mentally. She is actively involved in managing two CrossFit gyms in Vancouver as well as coaching classes throughout the week.

By 2017, Sophie found herself frustrated with her body image regardless of the fact she was fit. She had heard about flexible dieting and began to experiment in changing her eating habits. Seeing instant changes to her physical and mental state, she reached out to Black Iron Nutrition and began to work with Kelsey Kiel. Inspired by her coach and some of the client testimonials at BIN, Sophie decided that she wanted to further her career to help other people reach their goals in health and performance through nutrition. While interning with Ashley at Black Iron Nutrition, she earned her PN1 Certificate. 

Sophie lives in Vancouver, Canada and spends much of her time working with the membership at CrossFit BC, and assisting with local competitions. Private time is spent with her furry kid, Max.
