Kate ‘killer’ Rawlings is a sole female owner of Coca CrossFit, I Am Stronger and ‘killer’ Custom Creations.
In 2007 Kate was working in the recruiting industry where business suites were an everyday. When going to pick up a new suit, the size 12 didn’t fit and she was forced to face a harsh truth; she had gotten fat and no on told her.
Over the next last 8 years Kate would reach the pinnacle of the CrossFit world competing individually in Carson, California at the Reebok CrossFit Games as an individual competitor, open her own affiliate, Coca CrossFit, collect 14 certifications start a non-profit, I Am Stronger and ‘killer’ custom creations.
Since competing at the CrossFit Games Kate became a professional CrossFit athlete being picked up by Reebok, Rogue Fitness, AtLargeNutrition, Affinity Whole Health and Sure Sport Active Wear.
As an athlete Kate suffered major injuries, fracturing her S1-L5 vertebra and being placed in a back brace for 24 weeks. Once she began rehabbing looking forward to returning to competition she ruptured her Achilles rebounded on box jumps. The second blow was a big one and one that forced her to look inward and what was truly important.
It was at that time she began working with a life coach, Stephanie Vincnet, to look at what she truly wanted out of life. She quickly realized that becoming more than Kate ‘killer’ Rawlings the athlete she could be so much more, Kate ‘killer’ Rawlings the inspirational spark in people’s lives. After connecting with Greg Amundson, Kate was able to truly figure out her purpose, ‘to get others to believe in themselves’.
A year later she would be forced to have a knee surgery as a result of 18 years of competitive soccer and the years of abuse she had put on her body. It was this third and final strike to Kate’s lingering ego. She truly fell into the role of selflessness’s helping other people flourish.
It was at that time she began building I Am Stronger, a non-profit working to get young girls into CrossFit for free to combat the social pressures of society.
