Lena Mentyka – CF L2, Leads Manager
Lena is a new addition to our staff in 2020. We usually promote from within our ranks but Lena’s quick learning along with a great sense of professionalism and excellent classroom management made her an immediately awesome coach. She recently moved to Boise with her boyfriend and has been at the gym for hours everyday.
Lena swam competitively in college at American University. She swam from 2012 to 2016 in the 200 back stroke, 200 free, and 100 back stroke. Lena began her CrossFit career as an olympic lifter. She learned the lifts in her D1 college program, but quickly found that CrossFit was a little more her speed. Before coaching CrossFit, Lena taught swimming for 3 years. Lena began competing in CrossFit in 2017 and has participated in lots of local competitions (on the east coast) in addition to Wodapalooza and the MAAC.
