Alex Straw

Hi, I’m Alex! I am the head coach at Dreamtown CrossFit. I was born and raised in Truckee. Spent my younger years as a multi-sport athlete playing tennis, ski racing, baseball, soccer, and swimming. I eventually had to narrow it down to one sport and became a swimmer. I swam competitively all through high school and eventually earned a scholarship to swim for the University of Hawaii.

After my time as a swimmer, I suffered a skiing accident that I thought would have debilitated me for life. I chose the latter and needed to find something that could break that idea. I found CrossFit in Hawaii and when I began could barely do an air squat. CrossFit got me on the path to moving again. I immediately became immersed in the culture and community and CrossFit became a passion.

I have been coaching CrossFit for over a year and a half now and currently have my CFL1.

During my free time, I love to do all things outdoors. Outside of the gym, I am always mountain biking, surfing, swimming, skiing.. the list goes on.

Overall CrossFit and coaching have given me the opportunity to become a better athlete, friend, neighbor, and human being

Hey Guys and Gals, I’m Kenzie! I’ve been lucky enough to call Truckee home for the past 2 years, and even luckier to have found my community here at Dreamtown CrossFit. I’m an out and proud lesbian livin’ the dream with my pup, Tuli, and pursuing my career as an architect designing beautiful single-family mountain homes.

My fitness career all began in good ol’ Carson City, Nevada—just down the hill from Truckee. I dabbled in nearly every sport before landing on soccer. I played goalkeeper at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and upon graduation, found my new sport in CrossFit and haven’t looked back!

At the gym, I’m known as the 'young buck' (I am 24 years old) and ‘the one with the engine’. I thrive on long, strenuous workouts, and find my stride during running and lower body-centric workouts. You can find me at Dreamtown almost every day of the week, because here, I’m surrounded by a community of people who push me to be my best self every single day. The gym is a community of folks who are pursuing betterment for themselves, and everyone around them, every day. That’s what makes Dreamtown unique. In this gym, there are no egos, everyone is welcome, we push one another, and you’ll finish each workout a better version of yourself.
