Sara "Sasa" Sa Carrigan

Years at CrossFit Draper: 3

Way to go Sara! Setting 3 PRs in one month. For the story of "Sasa" read below.

I’m originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but Utah has been home for almost 4 years.

I started CrossFit in January of 2018 and fell in love with it. I’ve always been very active, but CrossFit is different, so challenging and so fun at the same time. Crossfit has helped me get stronger than I ever thought I could be. I feel constantly challenged to improve both physically and mentally.

Moving to a new country can be hard sometimes, but I found an awesome community at Crossfit Draper, and made so many friends that I’m so grateful for.

Thanks CFD Family for being so welcoming and supportive since my day 1!

Sasa origin story:

You can thank coach Braedon for this. When writing her name on the board, his “R” looked like an “S” and Sasa was born. It stuck since we have a few other Sara’s in the gym.
