Louise Eberts - where do I even begin to describe how much we love her, and how well liked and respected she is in the CrossFit community. My husband Jeremy has known Louise since 2010. I had the pleasure of meeting her in 2012 and instantly admired her energy and personality. I soon learned how much I would come to respect her as a Coach. When Louise lived in the Okanagan, we had the honour of having her Coach at CrossFit Vernon. Although regrettably brief, her time with us was incredibly valuable for our athletes - and years later, I STILL reference her coaching cues, constantly. Louise ran a gymnastics night at CFV. She was always early, engaging in conversation with our athletes. Once the sessions began, she always held a professional but playful atmosphere to the classes, which always helped because gymnastics is extremely difficult. Out of all the aspects of CrossFit, I believe it to be the most difficult to learn and to coach. She created a safe space for us to make small errors, and then directed us to correct them with ease and respect. In addition to her personality and welcoming coaching atmosphere, Louise understands gymnastics programming and the value of quality training. I have since adopted ideals from her approach to gymnastics development: focusing on the skill development before volume or intensity. Mastery of the fundamentals was always her approach; catering the program to the individual athlete. Louise has programmed for me, for four years and has facilitated the development of my skills because she meets me at my level. She no doubt helped me get to Regionals because gymnastics was always my weak link. She listens to what I want to work on, she knows my weaknesses and strengths, and she catered the program accordingly. She’s a wonderful human being and a phenomenal gymnastics Coach.
