Cool People Doing Cool Stuff #004: The Story of Alena Yancey: Former Drug Addict, Single Mom Turned Crossfit Gym Owner

By Juan V Lopez

So thankful for Alena taking time to share her story. Alena’s the owner of BattleBorn Crossfit in Reno, Nevada – the first crossfit affiliate in northern Nevada and first woman-owned crossfit gym in all of Nevada. She’s overcome a lot of odds: Having a drug addiction as a teen. Being a single mom of Evan Defer. Taking over BBCF in 2008 during the Great Recession. The woman’s a fighter and one of the most genuine people you can meet. Truly a pleasure to do this Q&A with her – take 30 minutes during lunch, at the gym or after work today to check this out and share it.
