Erica Melle-Hernandez

Born and raised in San Antonio, TX, Erica is a teacher by day and CrossFit coach by some nights and weekends. Erica found her love of CrossFit after years of yo-yo’ing dieting and exercising at global fitness centers. When Erica is not teaching in her middle school classroom, she can be found coaching at CrossFit Lackland. Her ability to break down movements and find cues for each individual athlete are what makes her successful. Erica finds joy in teaching the younger generation in her classroom as well as athletes of all ability levels in the gym.
