CrossFit Wonderland affiliate owner and Certified CrossFit Trainer (CF-L4) Caroline Lambray joins host Adrian Conway on the “More Than Fitness” podcast to share her story about becoming a CrossFit gym owner, changing lives, and coaching CrossFit Games champion Jeff Adler. 


In 2023, Lambray became the first female coach to lead an athlete to the title of Fittest on Earth, coaching Adler — a five-time Games athlete — to his first championship. But when she first started CrossFit and took her Level 1, she thought her career would go in a different direction. 

In today’s episode, Lambray dives into her passion for changing lives through CrossFit and its methodology. She details her experience coaching in other gyms, discusses her dream to be on the Seminar Staff, and expands on her desire to help people own their health journeys to be independent later in life. 

Lambray opens up about meeting Adler, seeing his potential as an athlete, and becoming his coach. She explains how communication and asking questions strengthen their coach-athlete relationship, and shares the highs and lows of their CrossFit journey, leading up to his 2023 title. 

Tune in to hear more on Lambray’s role as a coach to everyday athletes and to the Fittest Man on Earth, being an affiliate owner and wanting to change the world, and how and why CrossFit works for everyone.
