I'm 27 years old and have been coaching CrossFit for 5 years. In the past, I have also coached swimming, water polo (2008 – 2011) high school and club level and did strength and conditioning programs for them as well. I have a CrossFit level 1, a CrossFit powerlifting, a movement and mobility, and an OPT coaching program “on journey” certification. I'm married with no kids but do have one adorable dog, named Baxter. My family and faith have always and will always come first. I love CrossFit competition and Olympic weightlifting. I love seeing people make life changes. I also love competition. I have competed in the CrossFit regionals in 2010, 11, 12 (highest finish was 18th place in 2012) and competed in the 2010 CrossFit games in affiliate division (on affiliate team). I also played water polo in college (Division 1 NCAA) USAFA.
I have two beautiful daughters. They are my life. I have been a deputy sheriff/police officer with the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office/Unified Police Department since January 2006. I am currently assigned as a patrol officer in Midvale. I served on the SWAT team for almost 3 years. I also love my Harley! I did my first WOD at CrossFit 801 5 years ago. It was a partner WOD, Dirty Thirty. I thought I was in shape up to that point. That WOD kicked my butt, but I was hooked. I stepped away from CrossFit for a bit, but eventually found my way back to CrossFit 801 and haven't looked back. I knew right away the koolaid was tasty and wanted to help others come to our community. I got my Level 1 and can't wait to spread the CrossFit word! I also served as a CrossFit Games Southwest Regional Judge and CrossFit Games Judge in 2013.
I am a full time student at UVU. I have been doing CrossFit for almost 3 years now. When I first started CrosssFit, I thought, “How hard can this be?” I considered myself to be in pretty good shape from working out in a traditional gym. I was completely wrong. My first CrossFit workout pushed me harder than I had ever pushed myself in the past. I immediately knew I loved it. From that day forward, I have been addicted. After a few months, I started signing up for trainer certification courses. I now have my Level 1 certification, as well as an endurance certification, and an Olympic weightlifting certification. When I'm not at CrossFit or in school, I love being outdoors: snowmobiling in the winter and hiking/golfing in the summer. Crossfit has helped me improve in all those activities. CrossFit is great for anyone who wants to be their best self.
The Phoenix Gym
The Phoenix Gym represents a new chapter for our gym. We began in March 2008 as CrossFit 801. We were the first CrossFit affiliate gym in the Salt Lake Valley. Since then we have helped over 1000 individuals work towards their health and fitness goals. Our clients have come from all different backgrounds and range from as young as 6 years old up to over 60. Over the years we have sent athletes to both the CrossFit regionals and the CrossFit games and continue to provide the tools for athletes to compete at all levels. Currently, we have over 100 clients in both group and private training programs. No matter who you are or where you are with regards to fitness, we’re interested in helping you reach your goals.
In 2013, we saw a need for a change. We wanted our community to be about more than just CrossFit, because our goal here really is to help any person reach their goal and there are so many ways to make that happen. So The Phoenix Gym was born. To us, this name means exactly what we want for our clients. Take a phoenician journey. Burn down your old self – redefine/recreate/renew who you are.
