Being a college athlete isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Sturgeon Bay alumna Linnea Schmelzer knows that better than many. By the time she entered her junior year playing basketball at Truman State University in Missouri, she was burned out, both physically and mentally. After her father passed in 2018, Schmelzer joined CrossFit as a way for her to channel her pain and pent-up energy. She still felt that something was missing. Schmelzer started her own business, FitBalance Academy. It’s an in-person and online coaching program that finds the balance among fitness, nutrition and mindfulness, which she believes are the three pillars of health.
