"A Community that SWEATS Together, STAYS Together."

We want to provide a safe, encouraging, and positive environment for adults, kids, and athletes of all ages to learn, improve, and reach their health and fitness goals. Most importantly we want to be a place that people leave healthier and happier than when they walked in.


Athlete of the Month- Erika Baca


Erika was nominated as August Athlete of the month because she is a huge part of the BCF staff! She is the face behind ALL the WODIFY accounts, updates, and changes! She's also been an athlete of BCF for almost 5 years!


Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.

I’m 42 years old with 2 grown boys.  I’m animal obsessed; I have three dogs (hopefully 4 soon?) and a cat.  Does that make me an old maid?  Yes, I think so.  You all know Sebas (18)…who doesn’t?! My oldest Toby (22) is a mechanic in the Army at JBLM.  I grew up in the Portland area.  While with my mom on the weekends, I was typically in North Portland running amok.  I lived with my dad in Milwaukie/Oregon City most of my childhood.  I’m a Management Analyst for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and am so thankful and proud of my 18 years of work for the County.  I was a hairstylist for many years prior to that.  I’m a mess of interests.  My dogs, drawing, reading, sleeping, home projects, Crossfit, riding my motorcycle (new hobby), food…all the food but especially sour patch kids. And coffee and curse words.


How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?

Once upon a time (almost 6 years ago) I went to a party with a bunch of friends from high school and saw a girlfriend there who had miraculously transformed in the year since I’d last seen her.  So I asked. And she told me about CrossFit.  I began searching for CrossFit near me with no luck.  One day I was checking out Groupon and saw BCF and was SO EXCITED! Purchase complete.  It only took me 5 more months to dare to walk in the door.  I mean…I had to try and get myself into some semblance of shape before just diving in right?!  Nothing prepares you.  Lesson learned.  First class, I was hooked.  Second class, I wanted to quit.  Fast forward and I’m going on 5 years at BCF!


What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?

The list is never-ending. Enjoy life, every day. Ride my motorcycle more. Draw more. Give more dog hugs and kisses. Become the Sr. Management Analyst. Maybe get my BA? Only if I have to, though.  Take more naps- like every day. Buy some land and put a small home (cabin-like) on it. Open a sanctuary for old dogs that haven’t been adopted. Be kind. Stay in shape and injury free. Work on getting my technique back now that I’m not broken. :) Be badass


What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?

Favorite- Clean (hands down). Non-favorite- Muscle up- only because they hate me.

What is your proudest CF moment?

146 lb squat clean.  I watch the video and it makes my heart race every time.  But honestly, I think every time I accomplish something that I haven’t done before it’s a new proudest CF moment.


What is 1 thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?

I have daddy issues. hahahaaaa

What is your biggest motivation in life?

I want to be a person that makes other smile.  From laughing at me or because I’m exuding happiness. Either way. J
