Kaley "the Muscle Hamster" Norris

Certifications & Specialties
Crossfit Level 1 Certified

Kaley has claimed Memphis as home since 2014, but originally from Indianapolis, IN. She is a full time pediatrician here in Memphis working in the emergency department. When she’s not at work she can be found in any of our morning, day, or evening classes (we’re convinced she just never sleeps). She’s the secretariat of the gym and the top secret planner of many gym events. She got her L1 in hopes of training kids in the future since that’s her passion. She has 18 years of competitive gymnastics experience and coached children’s gymnastics for 8 years prior to her career in pediatrics. She met Milos, the owner extraordinaire of Blackbuck, in Indy back in 2014 and is the reason he followed her to Memphis to eventually open CrossFit Blackbuck (your welcome guys)! You’ll always be able to spot her at the gym because she’s typically upside down walking on her hands or hanging out in baby jail with the kids.
