KARI MULLEN

OWNER / DIRECTOR / PERSONAL TRAINER / CROSSFIT COACH

Kari lives in Westminster, Colorado with her husband and their three kids.  Her family keeps busy with training, hiking, biking, stand-up paddle boarding, traveling, skiing, crossfit, cooking and gardening. Kari has been personal and small group training for 8 years and is currently an owner and director at Impact Fitness. Kari has always been an outdoor and fitness enthusiast. She was a competitive swimmer and runner through high school and college and has since competed and placed in many triathlons and endurance biking and running events.  Kari realized that as a triathlete,  she had a lot of endurance and stamina but was lacking in some key pieces of fitness. In April of 2017, Kari started CrossFit in order to improve her power, speed,  strength, agility and coordination. She fell in love with the CrossFit community within Impact and enjoyed her improvements and gains and  how much these components helped her triathlons.  It is Kari’s mission to help clients  gain strength, flexibility, mobility, and endurance so they are ready and able to compete, play, parent and keep up with life's busy schedules. She specializes in personal and small group training, weight loss, high intensity circuit training, strength training, and general fitness. She is dedicated to energizing, empowering and equipping clients and members for all of their passions and adventures. Kari absolutely loves people and she is all about creating a positive and motivating community that you can call your third home here at Impact!

EMILY COYLE

CROSSFIT COACH

Born and raised in San Diego, California, Emily has lived in 6 different states, but is proud to call Colorado home since moving here with her husband and three children in 2017. Emily has always enjoyed being active and exercising, but discovered CrossFit in 2019 and never looked back to her old fitness routines. Emily fell in love with CrossFit because of the challenging and effective workouts, but also because of the incredible community she has found within CrossFit. She is passionate about CrossFit’s methodology and feels strongly that movement is medicine and that the benefits of CrossFit extend well beyond the hour of the day spent training in the box. She is excited to share this passion with others.

 

A former elementary school teacher, Emily is thrilled to combine her passion for fitness and a health with her love of working with young kids as a CrossFit Kids coach. If Emily isn’t working out at Coal Creek, chances are she is spending time with her family, petting her dog Steve, or day dreaming about being on a beach.
