Traie Roberson gets it. Though she was a high-school athlete and continued to be active in college, life happened. She had a baby, and then she stopped making time for her own health and wellness. Determined to get her health back on track, she Googled CrossFit. Like many others, she was intimidated at first by what she saw: Pictures of muscle-bound men and women lifting weights and swinging from pull-up bars. Still, in 2012, she decided to give it a shot. “It was love at first workout,” she said. Not only were those intimidating things not so scary, but they were actually empowering. She loved how she felt physically and mentally after a great workout. In 2014, she joined Rushmore CrossFit and soon began coaching. “I had really found something I loved and was passionate about, and I wanted to be able to give that to other people,” she said. She took goal even further when she purchased the gym in 2015, merging her passion for fitness with her professional business experience. “My goal is to make fitness fun for everyone, help members accomplish their goals and achieve new personal records and build a positive and encouraging community,” she said. Devoted to the Rushmore community and helping people change their lives with fitness, Traie still coaches several classes each week. And if you want to get in shape but you’re feeling a little intimidated, just drop Traie a line. “The thing I look forward to most is when people achieve a goal they’ve been working on,” she said. “It’s not always about people’s one-rep maxes; I care about them living life—a long life.”
