I moved to the USA at the end of December 2001 to coach & grow the Bismarck YMCA Swim Program. I coached swimming at all levels (Age group to College) from 2002 until 2014. I also coached for Bismarck Aquastorm, Century High School and Grand Canyon University.

Between Urban WarFit and SoCo, I acquired my CF Level 2 and CF Strongman certifications as well as studied the training think thank courses of assessment, exercise physiology and energy systems training. I have been coaching for the last 18 years and my passion remains the same: helping people reaching higher grounds. Come to Big Muddy so we can help you achieve your goals!

Hi everyone! I became a part of this community in 2018. I really enjoy coaching and love what CrossFit has done for me, my health and my family. I am a mom of four awesome boys who definitely keep me busy…thankfully we have a CrossFit Kids program to help! I am currently working as a NREMT on the Standing Rock reservation and continuing my education at Bismarck State College. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors with the boys, hiking, fishing, kayaking, swimming and anything else that gets us some fresh air. If you are looking for a great place to get healthier and meet some awesome people. come see what this community has to offer.

Hello CrossFit family! Little autobio for you all! First off, I am from Montana. Grew up in a small town called Glendive. I came to Bismarck and earned my BSN at Mary college; this is where I have made my home and work for a traveling nurse company specializing in long-term care. I have two wonderful children; Maximus and Karisma. They keep me very busy! We enjoy lots of parks, walks and outside adventures!

I have been CrossFitting for a few years now. It began as a way to train for long distance running and also to lose some weight. Little did I know it would bring me to the place I am at today. I feel blessed to be a part of such an encouraging community of athletes.

When I’m not in the gym or running the kids around you may find me with my nose in a good book, traveling, leading worship in our church band or in the kitchen. I love to cook! Nutrition is fascinating to me! I am passionate about eating healthy and helping others to eat well.

One last thing! There are a few of us who have started a group called Faith Rx’d. God and CrossFit, two of my favorite things! We meet periodically throughout the month. There will be a workout and a devotion. Its just another way to plug into life and be of service.

I look forward to continuing this journey with all who are willing. If it was not for all of you I would not be here. It has been so fun getting to know everyone! A wise man once said, “We’re all in this together”. I could not agree more!

Kaydee Baker, Coach

Hey there! I joined Big Muddy in 2020 and have never looked back. This community has changed my life for the better and I can’t wait to hopefully do the same for others. I was born and raised here in Bismarck and now live in Mandan with my son Walker and my fiancé Devan. During the day, I am a social worker for people with disabilities and love what I do there. When I am not at work or at the box, you can find me reading a book, building anything and everything with Walker, or watching some terrible reality TV. I hope to see you all soon!

Brianna Diede, Coach

Hey family! I’m Brianna and I have two beautiful daughters. I grew up in Bismarck and have the most amazing family! Family and community mean the world to me and that is what attracted me to CrossFit. I started going to the capital and walking up the flights of stairs then, moved to working out in my living room. I was introduced to CrossFit during the 2019 Open. After my first class I fell in love! During the fall of 2021 I did an internship at BMCF then took my CrossFit L1 course to pursue coaching and I absolutely love it! Can’t wait to see you at the box!
