tiphany lopez

OWNER

Tiphany began CrossFit four years ago after a trip to the CrossFit Games with her then-boyfriend, Jonathan.  Now, four years, one husband, a baby, and two CrossFit boxes later, it’s safe to say she fell in love with it! Tiphany has a competitive dance and cheer background both as a coach and an athlete, but CrossFit certainly did not come easy!  She’s well versed on scaling movements and adapting a WOD to fit any skill level. During her pregnancy, Tiphany maintained a consistent CrossFit workout regimen for 40 weeks, providing another valuable set of scales and modifications to make CrossFit applicable to everyone.  Her favorite workout is Murph, and she never turns down a running WOD. Tiphany’s main focus at CFLR and CFLR-DT is Member Experience and ensuring the care and love we have for our athletes is central to everything we do.

When not at CrossFit, Tiphany works full time as a Pharmaceutical Account Manager and Field Sales Trainer for Galderma Aesthetic & Corrective where she sells a portfolio of facial injectables including Dysport, Restylane and Sculptra Aesthetic.
