Peter pisani, head coach

A former collegiate football player, Peter Pisani maintains a long history of mental preparedness and motivation, establishing him as a quintessential trainer and athlete. Throughout his time in school, his work on the football field was uniquely balanced with study in health science. 

Closely following graduation, in 2009, Peter steadily immersed himself in fitness and crossfit, becoming a coach in 2010. As an assistant strength and conditioning coach and a Level 1 Certified Crossfit Trainer, he vigorously upholds the values and methods that CrossFit promotes. Peter possesses a rare passion for excellence and integrity with an unwavering commitment and an unceasing level of discipline. His dedication has not gone unnoticed by peers nor professionals, as he now boasts a career in fitness modeling. Peter also maintains certifications in CrossFit Football and USA Weightlifting Level 1.


Rachel vangstad, coach & Operations

Rachel first fell in love with CrossFit in 2010 after years of long distance running left her feeling stagnant. She knew after the first class she’d found a new and exciting challenge. What she didn’t know was how intrinsically she would become involved in the community in the years to come.

After coaching in the Seattle area for a year, she took some time off as she transitioned to San Diego. This is where she found Stay Classy. After a year off, she knew she wanted to start coaching again as it was one of her greatest passions and Stay Classy CrossFit gave her this opportunity. 

Rachel loves coaching athletes at all levels. What inspires her most is helping athletes accomplish goals they may have previously thought to be unreachable and getting to share that “wow” moment. She believes being a part of a person’s fitness journey is special and unique and loves sharing hers with members as well. Community also plays a big part in her love of CrossFit as she has definitely made Stay Classy CrossFit not only her full time job but her second home.
