I love being a CrossFit coach because I have a real passion and belief in what we do. Functional fitness is the basis of our being and source of longevity. I love passing on my knowledge to others, watching them grow and improve, and all the while building and experiencing the culture and community of CrossFit.

Our knowledge of training has taken incredible strides to evolve and continue to perfect our understanding of how and why we train through experimentation, research, and the sharing of knowledge. We are seeing people come in the door and hit training milestones in a matter of months that would have taken at least a year when I first started.

I’ve been lifting heavy weight for over 7 years now and still can’t get enough.

My first impression of CrossFit West Ames is that it was a bunch of dudes listening to Wu Tang Clan lifting heavy weight. While the original vibe is still there, it is now not only a bunch of dudes but a ton of awesome chicks also listening to Wu Tang Clan lifting some heavy weight!

I became a coach because I am a passionate giver. This has lead me to a life of adaptation and seeking of knowledge that will allow me to help others achieve their goals. I don’t see how I could have this knowledge and not want to share what I have learned with others. I have the ability to help people stay safe and become better.

My favorite part of being a coach is that moment when the movement clicks for the client, when everything you have been telling them all comes together and they perform the movement. They are excited and as a Coach I am excited.

What Our Clients Say

Dawn G

Why didn’t I do this sooner? My husband has been trying to get me into CrossFit West Ames for years, but I had all kinds of excuses. Well, better late than never! I am a runner, always have, always will be but I also love CrossFit. I finally signed up for the December Bootcamp with a friend and I have really enjoyed it ever since. I have accomplished things I never thought I could do. Who knew I could climb a rope? Thanks Crossfit West Ames for making me love a new sport!

That moment when a lightbulb goes off!!! Got stuck at work and didn’t make the gym so decided while waiting for supper to cook to do a few push-ups. I know dumb. But hey… When I was 30 reps in I figured why not see how many I could do. Hit 56 before I had to stop. I can remember when I started Crossfit a little over two months ago I couldn’t do a push-up. Sad but true. I had tried other gyms, but never stayed because of feeling really out of place. But not here. So thank you to everyone for making it ok that I sucked at everything during bootcamp and for encouraging me to start regular classes after the bootcamp. You guys are an inspiration!

Rasmus

…even though I had done CrossFit 5 months prior to coming to Ames I didn’t really feel I had the fundamentals in place and I think that’s something I definitely have now after 3 months at CrossFit West Ames and I’m looking forward to go home and build on that. Also a shout-out to 6:30pm. Destroying workouts and making sweet GAINZ with you have been awesome.
