What does “Ride the Grey” mean to you? Everyone’s got their own interpretation and therein lies the beauty of nuance. What the hell am I even talking about? Well, Ali Kershner [@kershner.ali] is not only the Associate Olympic Sports Performance Coach for Women’s Golf and Basketball at Stanford but she is also obsessed, in the best way possible, with the concept of lateral thinking. She believes wholeheartedly in asking difficult questions, embracing awkward situations, and seeking unconventional solutions. Pulling influence from all different facets of the NON-strength and conditioning world allow her to amass a broader view and show up more effectively for her athletes. This is the influence for her mantra and podcast “Ride the Grey” [@ridethegrey]. Truly a cutting edge coach with a noble endeavor.

Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
