Kelsey Butler

Kelsey has been coaching CF for about 4 years, and doing CF for about 9.5. Originally, she started as a member of SteelMill CrossFit back in the day, but has recently joined the First Coast coaching team after moving back to Florida in 2021. Kelsey loves to coach Olympic lifts and enjoys seeing all of the smiling faces that walk through the door every day. Making sure everyone is having fun whilst still challenging themselves is a top priority, as well as ensuring that everyone feels part of the First Coast family. And of course, making people laugh! Very important to make people laugh so they don’t realize how much they are dying during the workout.


What’s your most embarrassing fitness moment?
I slipped off the rig doing toes to bar, managed to land on the back of my head, ending in a sweet back somersault tuck with my legs all the way over my head. I don’t think anyone actually saw it, but definitely embarrassed for myself.

What’s your favorite Lift?
Snatches are my favorite lift, which coincidentally also is my favorite lift to coach.

What’s your Spirit Animal?
Cats. They’re weird, moody, smooshy, agile, and like eating. Enough said.

Do you have a superpower and if so, what is it?
Putting the cart back at the grocery store

What’s your rapper name?
Kel$ey B

Do you even lift, bro?
