Kelsey Kiel

NCAA Championship Swimmer, Olympic Trials Qualifier, Crossfit Games 2017 and 2019

Kelsey was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in small town outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kelsey was a collegiate soccer player and when she graduated, she moved into coaching soccer at the youth and collegiate levels. Kelsey found CrossFit five years ago and shifted her focus to that sport. She is a CF-L1 Trainer and enjoys coaching athletes of all skill levels.

In 2016, Kelsey qualified for the East Regional with team CrossFit Parallax, where they took second, qualifying for the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games. The team took 19th out of 40 teams in their rookie debut. Kelsey then competed in the South Regional in 2017 as an individual, finishing in 10th place.

In 2017, Kelsey moved to Boston, MA to train with Invictus Boston. The team went on to win the East Regional in 2018, and competed at the CrossFit Games in 2018 and 2019. More recently, Kelsey placed 5th at the Strength in Depth Sanctional in London, securing her first ever individual CrossFit Games invite!

Kelsey completed a year long internship under Krissy Mae Cagney in 2016/2017 to prepare her for her job with Black Iron Nutrition. Kels has now worked with over 2,000 athletes through Black Iron Nutrition and is excited to be working with a select group through BIN Performance.
