Ashley

Owner, Coach

Background:

Ashley played both softball and basketball in high school.  After working a desk job full-time, attending college and getting married, she became inactive and put on some weight.  She started back with an active lifestyle with at-home fitness programs and began running half marathons.  In January 2014, she began her CrossFit journey and hasn’t looked back. She got her CF-L1 in July 2015 and began coaching in January 2016.

I CrossFit because:

I enjoy the variety.  Every day is different and you’ll never get bored.  There’s always a new skill to work on or a new number to shoot for on weightlifting.

I coach because:

I  want to help others become better than they believe they can be.  It’s exciting to watch people develop a skill they never though they’d learn or lift weights they wouldn’t have ever dreamed of.

My favorite exercise is:

Cleans, followed closely by snatches!

My favorite “cheat” meal is:

Definitely tacos.  I could eat them every single day!

Background:

I CrossFit because:

It’s the only way I’ve found to not get bored working out. CrossFit pushes me past my comfort zone which also helps me with confidence in my daily life.

I coach because:

I love being a part of other people’s improvements.  It’s amazing to be around a group of people that work hard and constantly strive to be better.

The overhead squat.

Daniel

Background:

Daniel has always enjoyed staying active.  In the past, he has played baseball and soccer and also participated in BMX.  He started CrossFit in 2014 when he was traveling a lot and wanted to find a way to stay in shape.  He saw people online doing “Fran” and decided to try it.  He thought it would only take a couple minutes to finish it.  Six minutes later, gasping for breath, he was hooked!

I CrossFit because:

The community and the intensity makes it the best program on the planet.

I coach because:

CrossFit completely revolutionized my perspective of what it means to be healthy and I want to lead others down the same path.
