Saara is the owner and CEO of CrossFit Kreis 9. Saara’s CrossFit journey started in 2011 at CrossFit Lappeenranta in Finland. Having a background in teaching alpine skiing she quickly moved into coaching CrossFit. After 4 years of coaching in two different gyms in Zurich area she founded CrossFit Kreis 9 together with her husband Markus and business partner Fabio. “When Fabio found the perfect location we knew we had to go for it” she says. “There is no better place to be than in front of a railway station in Zurich”.

Being a business owner and a mom of three is not always an easy combination. “After more than 10 years with CrossFit, the training method still gives me everything I need for tackling life in general. CrossFit is at the same time rewarding and forgiving. You always train at your current level, not harder and also not lighter. This is what hope to provide to the members as well. Continuance and longevity in lifestyle, fitness and health.”
