Wiley Wadsworth

I am a Bay Area local and a student at UC Berkeley. I have played soccer for 18 years, and currently play on the Cal Women’s Club team. I also played club water polo and dabbled in numerous other sports. I love working out in general and I am an avid CrossFit-er.

Most of my training experience comes from Air Force ROTC, in which I am a fourth-year cadet. For a semester I led the advanced workout group, before moving on to take over the entire fitness program, which I led for another semester.

My favorite types of workouts combine cardio with strength. Don’t expect a lot of rest! I love pushing people to and past the limit, and showing them they are capable of much more than they think.
