Teri Griege is a competitive triathlete, marathoner and Ironman who shares her inspiring story as she continues her fight with Stage IV colon cancer. Get your free ticket to hear her inspiring story today.
In 2009, following the Louisville Ironman, Teri began experiencing injuries and fatigue. She was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and given a six percent chance of survival. Despite the devastating prognosis, Teri refused to let the disease get in the way of her dream, competing in The Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. In 2011, at the age of 50, Teri crossed the finish line in Kona. Three years later, Teri continues to train and compete in World Marathon Majors, triathlons and races.
Teri has been invited to share her inspirational story and her message of finding hope in the face of adversity to a range of major companies and organizations and she’s been featured on The Today Show, ESPN, and NBC, and was recently interviewed for the Ellen DeGeneres Show’s Good News Blog. She also received rave reviews from personalities such as NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman and multiple Sports Emmy Award winner Joe Buck, who said that Teri’s story, “would inspire even the most hardened cynic.”
As an advocate in the St. Louis community, Teri serves as an ambassador for the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA), and is a board member for GO! St. Louis and Pedal the Cause. Additionally, through the Links for Life golf tournament and Pedal the Cause, approximately $750,000 has been raised for Siteman Cancer Center.

Defining the Sport of Fitness
To us, CrossFit is not about making you specifically better at any single sport. To accomplish that, work hard in that sport and watch your skills develop through practice and training. We help you improve at the sport of fitness. Through our workout sessions (and the CrossFit WOD), we will define the sport of fitness for you, providing an excellent fitness foundation for your application in any sport, or simply in leading a longer, more independent life. Keep track of your work! Workouts are repeated periodically and tracking your progress provides confirmation of just how far you have come.
