My love for fitness began 12 years ago playing volleyball. This sport showed me the importance of having a community and how working as a team pushes us to be the best version of ourselves. I went on to play 2 years at the collegiate level which further inspired me to follow my dreams of becoming a personal trainer and sparked my passion for nutrition. I’m excited to help you through your wellness journey whether it’s weight loss, strength and conditioning, pre and post natal fitness, and/or nutrition. My mission is to ensure that you live a longer, healthier, and happier life.

Having had no athletic background, I discovered CrossFit/Olympic weightlifting as a masters athlete. I developed an instant love of fitness and lifting, and it was life-changing for me and my family. My interest in wellness and my passion for teaching children inspired Iron Kidz—a fitness program for children and teens to learn foundational principles for health, fitness, and lifting. I am a full-time RN and a mom of three busy kids. I coach and compete when time allows. I love my CrossFit community like family and spend most of my free time with the friends and coaches I’ve met in the last eight years.

Charlie grew up competing in wrestling throughout high school and college. After graduation, his desire to compete did not diminish and he continued with Brazilian Jujitsu, earning his Muay Thai shorts through Fairtex. In 2007, his friend Brian Garmon introduced Crossfit as the fitness program for clients at their work and asked him to assist. This introduction changed his life. Charlie has extensive experience working with de-conditioned and special needs populations which has aided him in developing into an attentive and patient coach who thoroughly enjoys helping those under his watch meet their personal goals. Safety, functionality, and then intensity are mottos that he preaches in his 101 classes.

Chris is originally from a small ranching town in the foothills of Northern California where there’s not much to do but lift weights and play football! He joined the Navy in 2010 and was fortunate enough to deploy twice to the Arabian Gulf and then forward deployed to Guam (in the Marianas Islands) for the remainder of his service. Along the way he helped his fellow service members to pass physical fitness standards as well as helped others learn the benefits of heavier resistance training. Stating “There’s more to life than running!” In 2016 he left the military to pursue a Sport Science degree from Arizona State University, and will graduate in Fall 2020. Chris has continuously grown his coaching skills since 2016 by becoming certified as a trainer, starting a strength training company, Ragnarok Performance, and is currently interning at ASU Sport Performance and East Valley Strength & Conditioning.

Chris prides himself on being a strong geek, “I love to lift things up and put them down, but I will also watch the original Star Wars, or play video games if there’s time!” Currently he likes to compete in Strongman events throughout the year, with a recent best of a second place finish February 2020. Powerlifting is another love of his, but will admit it’s been a while since his last formal competition. However, he hopes to change that soon!

I’ve been a personal trainer since 2008. I’ve helped people lose weight and keep it off; gain weight and strength; get ready for CrossFit, weightlifting, and powerlifting competitions; and I’ve helped a lot of people become fitter and healthier. Everyone has the potential to be where they want to be; sometimes they need a helping hand to get there. I’ve been able to provide that through nutritional counseling, skill work, personal programming, and everything in between.

The two things that I love most about coaching are the people and the beauty of the sport. Everything boils down to relationships; the coach-athlete relationship is very special. A coach has the privilege of mentoring athletes, and the right coach can be a life-changing influence. Coaches have the opportunity to teach people how to approach problems, and how to work in structured and focused ways towards accomplishing their goals. Possibly most important of all, the coach creates the culture of the team. The coach can teach athletes how to treat people, how to build people up, and how to create a culture for the betterment of everyone on the team.
