Deena Williams


I attended my first CrossFit class in 2012, just a couple of weeks after CrossFit Raw Steel opened, and like most people there was no turning back. Having been a relatively active person my whole life (and extremely competitive in nature), I struggled to find a fitness program that could keep me motivated and interested while also providing physical results. CrossFit not only gave me everything I was looking for, but also unexpectedly presented an opportunity to help other athletes reach their goals.

In 2013, my husband and I opened and co-owned CrossFit Republic, which was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Holding a leadership role forced me to become a better coach quickly, and gave me a different perspective. Watching others grow in their journey mentally and physically was rewarding beyond words.

I am thankful for the opportunity to continue to help athletes by coaching at Raw Steel. I hold my Level 1 CrossFit Certification and CrossFit Weightlifting Certification. I believe in constantly educating myself to become the best coach I can be and am honored to be a part of this community!
