Allen Katie Thompson

Allen & Katie Thompson

We’ve both been involved in the Orlando CrossFit community for more than 6 years as athletes and members of several gyms around the area.

Allen is originally from St. Louis. His love of fitness began as a member of the Army Boxing Team at West Point. After college, he served as Master Fitness Trainer (planning physical training for his platoon), and eventually began running a personal training business while he worked at the Pentagon before relocating to Orlando.  Currently, Allen is Chief Operating Officer of local women’s sporting goods company RIP-IT Sports.

Favorite Movement: Squat Clean

And me, Katie, I hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin. I grew up as a dancer, singer, and actress. Dancing was my preferred form of exercise, until Allen dragged me to a Halloween WOD on our third date, and I fell in love with the sport of fitness, too. My business background started in Sales for tourism companies, running events in Mexico (luckily I’m is fluent in Spanish). I am currently the Head of Soccer and Volleyball Sales for RIP-IT Sports.  I like to think of myself as a super friendly and outgoing, people-person who will bring tremendous charisma to the MouseTrap community.

Favorite Movement: Squat Snatch

A little more about us, we’ve been married for 4 years and we live that CrossFit lifestyle. When we travel, we always drop-in somewhere, so a box needs to be nearby wherever we go.  Sometimes, we even bring our own weights on road-trip vacations and workout on the patio of an AirBnB or in a hotel parking lot!  Between the two of us, we’ve done 3 competitions (Zombie WODs, Bacon Beatdown, and War on Wall Street).  We are planning on doing another one this year, too.  We are fans of the sport of CrossFit and tune in to watch as many sectionals as we can.  Yeah, so we are fans of CrossFit. Allen and I are both CF-L1 Trainers and enjoy popping in to coach our members from time to time.
