Have you noticed the new faces around the gym? Allow us an introduction….
What’s going on!! I’m from Brockport, NY. I played college baseball and was in the Air force for a while. What brought me to Crossﬁt? I love the everyday grind of seeing what my body can handle and pushing it’s limits. My goals as a coach are to give the athletes the piece of mind that they are not only better physically and mentally but also a better person. Whether that be getting more in-tune with their body or perfecting the movements asked of them with perfect practice. I will never be a master of CrossFit. Everyday something new can be learned and/or a movement can be perfected.
I grew up in an extremely inactive family, never playing sports or doing anything physically challenging. I didn’t realize this was a problem until the year my dad was diagnosed with type two diabetes and had gastric bypass surgery! I was suddenly more aware of my body and the things I put in it. CrossFit has changed my life. I learned how to push myself harder then I ever imagined. As a coach my goals are to help people see what they are capable of doing with their bodies. I want to be a part of the positive life changes that take place in the CrossFit community, just like my coaches did for me. I have served in the Navy as an air trafﬁc controller, I am a Mom and I am currently studying nutrition at Metro State College.
Emilee comes to us from Eugene CrossFit in Oregon. Although she has always been active, having played numerous sports in high school, she had never experienced anything quite like CF. When asked what she loves most about being a coach, she beams with pride and exclaims “The people; showing up every day and watching people do something they couldn’t do the day before or something they never even imagined inspires me.” On a side note, if you come to her class, you will most certainly witness how CrossFit helps improve your dancing skills.
In her free time, Emilee loves to run half marathons or volunteer. She is also the Director of two events that she pioneered: The 5&10k Love (www.ﬁveklove.com) and the Honey Badger Half Marathon & 6k.
Many of you remember Jared from his last “tour” at MBS. He left early 2011 to take a glamorous job in the oil industry. Thank the CrossFit God’s Jared is back, bringing with him a wealth of CF knowledge and experience and a great laid back coaching style.
I starting crossﬁtting in December 2008 during my 2nd tour with Army Infantry in Baghdad at a garage gym with cement cans for weights and dust and dirt on the ground. My ﬁrst workout was Angie and I’ve been hooked on CrossFit ever since. I got my Level 1 Certiﬁcation immediately upon my return to the states and began coaching at MBS in 2010. I took a hiatus to work in the oil ﬁelds and I’m happy to be back home at MBS. I am currently working on my prerequisites for PA school, which I am going to be apply for next spring. Just a forewarning for those of you that haven’t met me yet: I am loud and obnoxious, I like “angry” music, and I am not afraid of making an ass of myself all in the name of having a good time and hopefully learning something.
