CrossFit Tempest was established in May, 2017 by Owner/Head Coach and South Dakota native, Amber Sperlich. She quickly realized it's benefits for cross training and overall health and fitness of CrossFit after she was introduced to it in 2012 while living in Orlando, Florida. During that time she continued to live and train in Orlando until moving back in to South Dakota in 2017. Amber has had the incredible opportunity to travel and drop in at many boxes across the US and the UK, drawing on the unique knowledge and culture of the CrossFit community as a whole. After returning to SD, Amber wanted to open a place that would reflect community centered values, a welcoming atmosphere, and beginner friendly format.
