Deb Woodall

Co-owner and Coach
Deb Woodall


  • CrossFit L1
  • Working Against Gravity Nutrition Coach
  • Primal Health Coach


Deb doesn’t consider herself a natural athlete or have a background in sports. Growing up she spent most of her free time reading or biking with friends, was too self-conscious for sports, and struggled with being overweight. She first found fitness in her 20s as a runner and yogi, and running injuries brought her to personal training where she eventually found Steve Woodall who introduced her CrossFit. It was a match on both counts!

Deb has many years of experiencing coaching in a corporate setting and is passionate about helping others recognize and reach their own potential. She recently pivoted from a 9 to 5 corporate job to contributing to CrossFit Wilmette more formally. You’ll find her coaching weekday classes, tending to our small CrossFit Wilmette “store,” and doing some of the glamorous things gym owners do like oiling barbells and cleaning rowers. And she’s loving it!

Deb holds certification from CrossFit (L1 online) and is a Working Against Gravity Nutrition Coach. In her free time, you’ll find Deb driving Maddie Woodall around the suburbs, walking our three dogs around Deerfield while listening to health podcasts, and participating on Maddie’s school board.
