Raven Cohen

Raven (aka Traffic) is our August PAX spotlight! Raven is one of the fiercest PAX of FiA Memphis. Her gentle spirit radiates kindness and love. We are so thankful for her involvement with FiA! Let's take a minute to get to know her better!


1. Tell us about yourself!

My name is Raven. I am originally from Connecticut but have been living in Memphis for the past 7 years and proudly think of myself as a Memphian. I’m a former school psychologist but am now studying counseling psychology at UofM.  In my spare time, I love spending time with my two rescue pups, volunteering, exploring the outdoors (by foot, wheels, kayak), and listening to podcasts. 


2. How did you hear about FiA?

Amy (Beats) would come into work raving about her intense, yet fun, morning workouts with this amazing group of women. I knew I had to check it out for myself and boy, she was not exaggerating! 

3. How did you get your FiA name?

When I introduced myself, I had shared that I enjoyed spending time with friends and exploring the local Memphis breweries.  Traffic actually comes from the last beer I drank courtesy of Crosstown Brewing Co.

4. What makes you keep coming back to FiA consistently?

I keep coming back to FiA because of the wonderful group of women that encourage and challenge one another to reach their fitness goals.

5. Favorite thing about FiA:

My favorite thing about FiA has to be the variety of the workouts. No two workouts are ever the same, which is often the reason why I burnout so quickly at expensive gyms and fitness classes! I also love that we can add variations to our exercises so that it is inclusive of all ability levels AND challenges each of us where we’re at. 

6. Favorite Quote(s):

A quote that resonates with me is: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” Author Unknown
