Monique Beauchamp


Monique is a CO-Owner and Manager of CrossFit True where she runs the day to day operations of the gym and works as a Coaching supervisor developing and mentoring interns and new coaches.  Monique was always active and as a child played every sport she could, even if she wasn’t any good at it. She liked being part of a team where you share common goals and everyone encourages you to push yourself to do your best.  As an adult she grew out of organized sports and took up rock climbing.  As her rock climbing became more serious she began searching for ways to get stronger.  At first she joined a traditional gym but found she was on her own, she missed the team aspect she remembered from childhood.  Then she found CrossFit and was immediately drawn to the team atmosphere and camaraderie of the classes.

“CrossFit has changed the way I view fitness and has taken my climbing to a new level; not only in the power and strength aspect, but also in the mental game needed to be successful.”
