What do you love about coaching at KFP? “I might be biased since my husband & I own KFP 😜 but it’s the best gym in Minnesota. From the care & quality of coaching, to the why & knowledge behind the programming. Our coaches strive to make a positive impact on each & every one of our members and it’s not just a gym; It’s a big family who supports one another through the lowest of lows & highest of highs in & outside of the gym. We’re here to help make you a stronger, healthier version of yourself regardless of where you’re starting at.”

What’s your favorite movement? “I love anything with snatches in it or the workout “DT”. Anytime I can sling around a heavy barbell I’m happy 😜”

What do you like to do outside of the gym? “Right now it’s sleeping, considering I’m 20 weeks into growing a human 🤣 I love cabin weekends & watching Willow live her best life in the water, or on my parents boat & trying new restaurants with the hubby Braeden Cordts.”

30 Rounds For Time
5 Wall Ball Shots (20/14 lb)

I love this because there is no excuse to ever stop moving. Plus, gymnastics and a heavy barbell. What’s not to love.”

What do you like to do outside of the gym? “Anything outside no matter the weather. Soaking up the sun, playing in the snow, dancing in the rain. I also really LOVE cheesy Hallmark movies!”

Alison Monday coach at Kor Fitness & Performance

Alison Monday

HEAD Coach, L2

– CrossFit L2
– Trauma-Informed 200 Hour Yoga Instructor
– PN Level 1 Nutrition Certification
– PN Level 1 Sleep, Stress Management & Recovery Coaching Certification

When did you start CrossFit? “2012”

When did you start coaching CrossFit? “2018”

“I started coaching group fitness classes in 2011 because I wanted to step away from the computer screen I was at all day + interact with other humans (something that doesn’t exist when you’re self-employed.) It started with yoga and shifted into functional fitness + CrossFit when I experienced the magic of that methodology for myself. I got my L1 in 2018 and have been coaching multiple classes a week + workshops since.”

“My certifications point to working with the whole human, not just the movement I see in front of me. Breath, mobility, body awareness, mindset, stress, nutrition, life experiences, strength, all come together during our 1 hour a day together. And I’m here to support you with all of them.”

“You’ll catch me dramatically breathing while coaching to remind you to do the same, encouraging you to root for yourself louder than anyone else in the room, and sliding a terrible dad joke in whenever possible.”


Jenna Firner

Coach, L1

She holds her CrossFit L1, has her BA in Nutrition & Dietetics. To top it all off she is a licensed attorney!

When did you start CrossFit? “2016”

When did you start coaching CrossFit? “2022”

“I initially joined CrossFit as a mental and physical outlet from school and instantly fell in love with the movements, the progress I made, and the community. I love the variety that CrossFit offers because I am someone who gets bored easily and I also love how much it continually challenges me. As I started to make progress in the gym, I realized the importance that nutrition has on my body and health and really focused on tailoring my macros to maximize my performance in the gym. So, if you need any good, macro friendly recipes, let me know!”

“I specifically love the lifts associated with CrossFit; there is no better feeling than walking up to a barbell and throwing around some heavy weight. I also love the feeling of hitting a PR, whether it’s hitting a specific lift, or just showing up and giving the workout my all. I knew I wanted to coach when other athlete’s PRs felt like my own. I get just as excited and giddy watching someone accomplish a goal or movement that they have been working towards. I am the kind of coach that will encourage you to challenge yourself, believe in yourself, and have fun.”
