Raya began Crossfitting in 2012 while looking for new ways push her fitness to the next level. With an ever-growing interest in the field, she furthered her knowledge of and experience with personal training and group fitness classes for women in Saudi Arabia. She worked to foster women’s health and increase their awareness of sports and exercise. In 2012, while in Saudi Arabia, she and a small group of friends established the first Crossfit box in Saudi Arabia, in coordination with a coach from the UK. She assisted with programming, coaching, communicating and attracting new members, and strove to empower women in Saudi Arabia to be fit and healthy.
Raya is currently a graduate business student at Boston College with ambitions to combine her managerial/business knowledge with fitness and exercise. She coached for a year at KSA Crossfit before coming to Crossfit Coolidge Corner as an intern, where she now coaches.
