Christiane Ghorayeb
Christiane GhorayebCoach, Personal Trainer & Social Media Manager
Meet Christiane. Sports had always been an important part of her life and she kept herself busy competing in Figure Skating & playing AAA soccer throughout high school. After graduating in Public Relations from McGill University, Christiane started a full time job working for a food chain behind a desk in the internal communications department. After 3 longs years she soon realized that something was missing. With minimal time to join a sports team or club, Christiane started training at a gym doing a regular gym program and again found that something was missing. That was until she found CrossFit where she rediscovered her passion for sport, loved working out with her gym buddies, enjoyed the hustle required for each workout and the element of the unknown in the workout programming! It was not too long after that she realized she had a passion for helping people with their fitness goals so she decided to become a Personal Trainer. After completing 3 years of coaching, the National Academy of Sports Medicine Certification and the CrossFit Level 1 Certification, she is excited to coach at CrossFit Westmount and share her passion for fitness with others!
