SAMANTHA BANISTER

HEAD COACH

BIO

I started doing functional fitness in June 2013 initially to support my husband who was also joining, even though I didn’t want to at first because I was too intimidated.  Growing up active playing soccer, doing dance, running, and a deep passion for competitive swimming, free weights and barbell work was completely new to me. Despite this, I quickly picked up the movements and fell in love with the Live Ready Fitness community so much that I started training for my first scaled competition only two months after doing my very first WOD and eventually ended up changing my college major from education to exercise science. I recently graduated from Columbus State University, with a degree in Exercise Science with a strong focus in exercise physiology, kinesiology, and strength & conditioning.  I have an immense passion for coaching, the science behind movement, and getting our athletes to realize the potential they have within themselves, both in and outside of the gym.
