Coach Corian Yandel is one of the Co-Owners and is the gym’s Head of Client Success, and has been a committed CrossFitter for several years. She specializes in nutrition and weightlifting, and is passionate about “helping others learn about nutrition and fueling their bodies properly for their desired goals. I also love helping others find their fitness. Watching people discover their strength is the best part of my day.”
Like many coaches, Corian enjoys watching members find new things they thought they would never be able to do. “Watching them tackle their goals, finding confidence in themselves as they realize what they are capable of, those are the best parts of coaching,” she says.
A former obstacle course runner who played softball and baseball in her school years, Corian credits CrossFit with saving her life when she started. “I fell in love with the community and the passion that surrounds CrossFitters,” she says. “I loved going in every day and being a part of something that could help so many people be happier and healthier. I quickly found my passion and along with my husband, became a certified CrossFit trainer. We partnered up with our friend Jason and decided to open up Harbor Park CrossFit in order to help others find their health and happiness as well.”
Corian has a passion for helping people find better nutritional habits as she claims that this is an area she also used to struggle with until she learned to treat food as fuel, instead of eating just to eat. Corian recently completed her Precision Nutrition Certified Coach Level 1 certificate and has been using her training to help clients with a better understanding of food and nutrition. Corian is also the founder of OWN Health Coaching; which is one of Harbor Park CrossFit’s nutrition partners.
A traveler who enjoys hiking, backpacking, camping and anything outdoors, Corian and husband Dave have two fur babies; a rescue pit/pug mix & a french bulldog.
Her favorite inspirational saying: “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”
