Betsy Baker

Betsy is a trainer at Champlain Valley CrossFit. Her athletic passions have evolved over time with marathon running, road biking, mountaineering and ice climbing among them. In 2002 she began a regular Bikram Yoga practice and became a certified instructor of the Bikram method in 2004. In June 2008, Betsy was a spectator at the East Coast CrossFit Challenge, a qualifying event for the CrossFit Games. Inspired by the strength, tenacity, and physicality of the event, she began her journey on a new definition of fitness. She loves the variety of the CrossFit method and finds personal challenge in every workout. Betsy became Level 1 Certified in August of 2009 and believes that individuals of all ages and athletic abilities can benefit from being CrossFit. A 49 year old native Vermonter, Betsy has a BA, MPA, and EdD from the University of Vermont where she has been working (and studying) for 23 years.
