Perrin Behr


Perrin comes to CFCC from three years of coaching and training at CrossFit215 in East Falls, PA. Prior to discovering CrossFit in 2010, Perrin ran Division III Track & Field at Ursinus College as a sprinter and javelin thrower.

Perrin’s goal is to influence and educate each client to change the way they think and see themselves. As a coach, she hopes to inspire individuals to make long-term lifestyle changes by teaching them about the benefits of functional fitness, movement, and healthy lifestyle habits. Perrin believes developing a connection between mind and body is the key towards human growth, and finding fulfillment and clarity in our daily lives.

Perrin’s athletics achievements include competing in Mid-Atlantic Regionals on team CrossFit215 in 2012,  individual in 2013, and team with CrossFit Center City in 2014 .

What is CrossFit? A foundation of strength and fitness in a supporting environment which fosters personal growth, physical preparedness for life’s challenges, and emotional resiliency.

Most memorable CrossFit moment: Competing at the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Regionals as an individual and finishing workout 5 (DL/Box Jump) under the 8 minute time cap for the first time.

Goals:  70kg Snatch, 91kg Clean & Jerk

Hobbies outside of training:  Watching recreational sports, playing and learning new sports, cooking, listening and playing music, eating food, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family.
