"I grew up in White Salmon, Washington, then shortly after high school moved to Bend, OR, where I lived for 5 years. This is where I was introduced to CrossFit. Now, I can't imagine life without it. I love the outdoors, friends, family, anything involving snow, and mostly long walks on the beach and cuddling by the fire." Alex Riley


Jeana Ladiges - CF-L2, Manager


I grew up in the Gorge and my husband and I also run a cattle ranch, where we raised our two sons. I have been coaching high school and community youth athletics off and on since 1987, and I was also a National Strength and Conditioning Association,Certified Personal Trainer. I have been involved with a variety of sports and programs throughout the years, and when I tried CrossFit in 2011, I LOVED IT! Specifically, I felt empowered because the workouts can look intimidating and there were times I didn't think I would complete them. But the beauty of CrossFit allows us to scale to skill levels that are attainable and still varied. I obtained my Level 1 in 2013, my Mobility Trainer Cert in 2014 and my L2 in 2016. The people I have met through CrossFit are my second family. This experience has changed my life! You should come give it a try too! ~ Jeana

My husband Jeremy and I started CrossFit at CrossFit Mt. Adams in the summer of 2011. We had seen the classes many times while doing our own workouts at the gym. The loud music, the high intensity, the supportive atmosphere ... we knew we had to try it! After just a few WODs, we were hooked! I'm now a proud mommy of our two young kids, having maintained my fitness through CrossFit throughout both pregnancies. 
Since age 4, I've been an athlete. I've participated and competed in a variety of sports including gymnastics, soccer, basketball, softball, and middle-distance running. I found my passion in high school when I stepped onto a tennis court. I went on to play collegiate tennis at the Division III level. I'm competitive, and I love to push myself to be better. That's why I love CrossFit! It tests your limits, shows you what you're made of, and trains you for just about anything life throws your way - whether it's a three-set tennis match, a hike with friends, or just bending over to pick up your kids. Come see us at CFMA. We'd love to share this with you!

I was introduced to CrossFit through my mom. Originally looking for something to get me off the couch after my
afternoon naps, my mom encouraged me to give this whole "CrossFit" thing a go - so I did! I instantly became attached, it was my new love affair! Only having played ice hockey, I was skeptical about entering the gym. Not only did I not have the motivation to go at it alone, I knew that I lacked accountability. CrossFit solved all of those problems. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted with friendly, "Hey! My name is..., what's your name"? INSTANT FRIENDS! It was exactly what I was needing.

My 5th/6th grade teacher told me about CrossFit when I finished 8th grade. She told me about the workouts and how amazing the community is. So I started to come to CrossFit between my sports: Cross Country, Wrestling and Track. Because CrossFit is Constantly Varied Functional Movements, it helped me in all of my sports, and also in life. I am a three time state qualifier in Cross Country, and I am sure that CrossFit had something to do with it. CrossFit has also helped me be able to go on a long run with friends and then go help a neighbor move a couch, because of the varied workouts. After only a year of CrossFit, off and on, I knew I wanted to be a part of this community and help others achieve their goals. So the moment I was old enough to sign up for a Level One Trainer Course, I did. I passed the test this summer and started coaching. My 5th grade teacher was right. This community is amazing, and I hope you come and try it out!



Lacey Krall - CF-L1
I live in Stevenson with my husband and two daughters. I began CrossFit in 2013 and love it because it has made
me stronger, not only physically, but also so much stonger emotionally. I started coaching in 2015, and also love the relationships I have built with my fellow crossfitters. Besides coaching and raising our daughters, I am also a hair stylist in Stevenson and enjoy competitive barrel racing and powerlifting.

In 2002 I broke my back. I was 20 years old when I went in for emergency surgery and came out with a fusion, metal and 47 staples in my back. I was rolled in and out of a plastic molded body cast every day to be able to sit up. I was completely helpless. It took me 4 months to learn how to walk again, but I can walk, and I am thankful every single day for that. My doctor told me to keep my body strong, especially my core, for the rest of my life. About 2-3 years after I healed, I noticed the effects of not keeping myself healthy, and in 2005-ish, I hit the ground running, literally. I started running, hiking and getting to the gym 5-6 days a week. Over the years I have tried all sorts of different fitness programs, fad diets, endless hours on the treadmill or trail. Finding that I would always start off well, but then lose interest and get bored. It was a struggle to keep my body strong and also love doing it. In 2011 we moved to Washington state from California and I joined CrossFit in 2012. My mind was blown. My body was happy. I finally found it! I feel stronger than I ever have in my life. I started coaching in 2016 and have learned so much. I am excited to continue learning and coaching CrossFit. I am married with two beautiful daughters and two adorable dogs. We live in Stevenson and my husband and I both work for Skamania County. I love summer, so when I can I am out hiking, paddle boarding or just laying out to soak it in while I can.
