Owner/Head Coach

My passion is coaching! I love seeing people succeed, make goals, and exceed those goals! There’s nothing like seeing a student get their first real pull-up, put up a PR on a lift, or fit in to that pair of jeans they haven’t worn in years! I fell in love with CrossFit and started coaching around in 2008. As an athlete, I love the community atmosphere, the push to never give up, to challenge myself, and reach goals I never imagined!

It’s a joy and honor to coach with my husband Claude who I’ve been married to for 20 years. We have 3 wonderful children who adore and train hard in CrossFit, which has helped them in their personal fitness goals. Our heart and motivation is helping others achieve excellence not just in training, but in everyday life. We are jazzed about bringing CrossFit to Madras and the surrounding communities and look forward to making a difference in health and fitness our community!

Claude

Claude

Owner/Coach

I’ve always been involved in athletics, and was very focused on sports during my youth and high school times. Football, Baseball & Weight Training have always been important to me and since finding CrossFit my passion and excitement has only increased. It’s changed my life, and my families life! CrossFit helps me fufill the athletic passion I have, as well as bringing out my love for coaching people to reach their full potential! It’s helped me with everyday life and the challenges that come up; whether physical or mental, it’s helped me push harder through whatever comes my way. This type of training has proved itself to be the missing link. It is THE best sports and conditioning program there is!

My heart is to see others succeed and as a CrossFit coach, I’m blessed to see our students reach their goals and make great strides!
