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. She obtained her Level 1 Trainer certification and began coaching at 215 in 2011. Since becoming a coach she has received certifications in CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Goal Setting and is in the process of completing the OPT CCP Level 1 Associate Coach (Assessment, Program Design, Life Coaching, Nutrition and Business Systems). She has also attended the Naka Athletics Freestyle Connection Gymnastics Movement Seminar with Carl Paoli, Hybrid Athletics Strongman Seminar with Rob Orlando, Strongman Seminar with Mike McKenna,  Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching Workshop and Stop Chasing Pain: Moving Beyond Mobility Workshop among attending other competitive training camps throughout the years.

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.
