Natalie Veras has been running for 10 years. She has participated in marathons and half marathons all over Canada, and by doing so has supported important causes such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Her passion for fitness and healthy living soon led her to believe that she could help others to attain similar goals. To that end, she has mined her experience in running and weight training and become certified in both personal training and Tabata boot camps. In each session, she encourages individuals, couples, and groups to take health seriously, and supports them with her own boot camps that include nutritional guidance. For those who wish to complete their first 5K, she also oversees a running course that takes place two mornings per week and skips the frivolity of the ceremonial releasing of the carrots.

In addition to laying the foundation for the speed, power, and medieval crossbow domains of traditional CrossFit, the introductory elements classes foster athletes in a less competitive environment in order to inspire confidence.
