Athletics has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. From Preschool foot races to the organized mainstream sports such as football, basketball, and baseball. Although I spent most of my adult life in the construction field, I have always stayed involved in athletics and fitness. My other job always paid the bills until I was able to pursue my dream and CrossFit was there for me.

Amber H. - Yoga has been a part of my life since 1998. In 2012, my practice in yoga has grown to influence all aspects of my life. I completed my RYT 200 certification at I Am Yoga Wellness Studio, in Turlock, CA. My class is Hatha yoga based, combining meditation, deep breathing, and stretch to leave you standing taller, squatting deeper, and feeling balanced.
I have been doing CrossFit for 4 years. I believe CrossFit and yoga are a perfect yin/yang complement to each other. In CrossFit you want to push yourself to become faster, do more repetitions, and lift more weight. In yoga you honor your body for what it is capable of at the time. You beat your body up with CrossFit then you nurture it with yoga.
When I’m not teaching high school or participating in CrossFit or yoga you can find me walking my boxer (Molly), enjoying time with my husband, or traveling the world. Besides Eagle my favorite places to be are Hawaii, New Zealand, and Australia.
It was my oldest daughter Kate, who first told me about CrossFit. My first day was shocking. With years of long distance running, I thought I was fit; the whole-body work had me cooked in short order. I was hooked! I’ve been doing CrossFit for over four years, and I love working out with friends, continuing to refine movements and improve.
In my role as a CrossFit coach, I look forward to encouraging and helping others in their fitness and nutritional goals. As a mother and former teacher, I’ve seen the value of moving the body, and thus my love of CrossFit. When I’m not at the “Station,” my other interests are my family, nutrition, quilting, and mountain biking.
Peggy - “I was a distance runner in my younger years and an avid yoga practitioner in my late 30’s and 40’s. I also studied Krav Maga for several years in my early 40’s. When my sparring partner started doing this thing called CrossFit, I noticed she was suddenly a lot stronger than me, so I tried it out in 2009 and haven’t looked back. I’m a CrossFit Level 2 Certified Coach and hold specialty certifications in Mobility, Endurance, and Rowing. I’m also co-organizer of the Boise Fitness League. I met my husband Jon in my mid-20’s when we were wildland firefighters; we’ve been married now for over a quarter of a century and have a teenage daughter, Chloe, who plays the viola.”
Melody - I am a CrossFit Level 1 Coach. I started CrossFit over 3 years ago when a friend dragged me to CrossFit Station for my first WOD: Murph. I made it through only a 1/5 of the WOD. Even after that, I was hooked. I had never really worked out consistently because I thought it was boring and felt like I did not know what I was doing. CrossFit made working out fun, and I had coaches to help me each day. Almost immediately, I noticed strength gains and weight loss. But what I most like about CrossFit is that it constantly presents new challenges from muscle-ups to Olympic lifts. This year I started coaching CrossFit and love getting to see people learn new skills and hit new PRs.
I did my undergraduate degree at Gutenberg College in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Philosophy and my masters at George Fox University in Education. Besides CrossFit, I love literature, coffee, mountain biking, discussing theology, teaching, ultimate Frisbee, beer, back-packing, water skiing, camping, traveling and Ian!
Ian - I am a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and am also starting my 3rd year of Physical Therapy school at UNLV. My goal right now is to practice sports physical therapy after graduation, as I have been an avid CrossFitter for over 3 years and been involved in sports all of my life. I enjoy working with athletes from different sports including basketball, football, track, and volleyball. I like coaching CrossFit because it gives me a chance to work with people of all ability levels and ages. It is fun to see people accomplish new goals that they may have once thought were unattainable, while also helping others create individualized goals in the gym that improve their health and quality of life outside of the gym.
Eric - In 2010 a good friend of mine asked me to join him in his garage to try something called CrossFit. Now I hadn't been a very physically active person in my life. I did the usual kids tee ball and little league and when I got older I started doing some running and thought I was in pretty good shape until I took my friend up on his offer. The first work out was the toughest thing I had ever attempted and I loved it. As time went by I noticed that the CrossFit community is something special and that made me love it even more. I received my CrossFit Level One Cert in 2014 and my CrossFit Mobility Cert in 2015. When I am not coaching or doing a CrossFit workout you can usually find me in the kitchen or just hanging out enjoying time with my wife and dogs.
Kelly - I started my fitness journey in my early 30's after years of unhealthy life choices. I was sick and tired of being overweight, low to no energy, bad skin, and burning lunges from smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. To make a drastic change I decided to throw myself at training to be a figure competitor. I replaced smoking with weight training and poor food choices with a diet plan designed to reach my fitness goals and stage presence. The transformation was so powerful it lit a passion in me to help others achieve their own goals and reach their potential.
I decided to expand my education by becoming a certified personal trainer through National Academy of Sports Medicine and with TRX suspension trainer.
While training clients I found that many people exercise without a plan. I also found that like me, they had little knowledge of how to perform exercises properly to reduce the risk of injury. As a trainer, I help people create plans and show them how to exercise in specific ways to achieve long-term goals and reducing the risk of injury.
Tyler - I became a CrossFit Level 1 Coach in 2016 while I was working for the recreation center at Washington State University. I attended the University of Idaho and received my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Health in 2012. I continued my education at Idaho and received my masters in Movement Sciences in 2014. After graduating I started working at WSU which is where I was introduced to CrossFit. I quickly realized CrossFit was a little different. I enjoyed the workouts, the community and most importantly my increased overall health. I look forward to coaching this community and helping others gain the same passion I have for CrossFit.
Todd - I have been involved in athletics and fitness my entire life, however, the first time I got serious about it was in the Marine Corps. That was when I truly began to understand how to push my limits without fear. I became a high school strength and conditioning coach in 2008, in order to share my passion for weightlifting and fitness. My wife Pam introduced me to CrossFit in the fall of 2013, and I was immediately hooked. I earned both my L1 and L2 certifications in 2014. I also hold certificates in Gymnastics and Weightlifting. CrossFit, to me, is more than just a workout program. It is so much more than merely lifting weights and getting fit. It is a lifestyle, and a community of like-minded people committed to getting better every day and supporting one another in the journey.
Courtney - I have been a certified athletic trainer (ATC) and certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) for 4 years. I currently spend most of my time at the College of Idaho tending to the injuries of multiple student athletes. I started CrossFit a long time ago...maybe 2010...? But I was a track athlete so I would dabble in my off season and get back to training for my sport. When I graduated from Linfield College in 2014, I devoted myself to Beaverton CrossFit in Beaverton, Oregon. After that, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada and started an internship with UNLV baseball and softball while completing my masters degree in kinesiology. I even sat behind Ian at graduation! It's truly a small world after all! I love CrossFit because you can always see how far you have come whether it is hitting a new PR, mastering a new skill, or crushing the WOD! Not to mention how fun it is getting to meet new people! In my spare time I dig fishing, backpacking, and drag racing with my family.
Patrick - Back in 2012 I stumbled, literally stumbled, into CrossFit on crutches and in a cast. Running and racing since childhood, I fell victim to reconstructive Achilles surgery, which was accompanied by the order to avoid running for nearly a year. Trying everything to stay active, a trainer at the gym suggested that I try CrossFit, and did, fell in love with the activity and have been going at it full force ever since.
CrossFit has opened a previously undiscovered world of fitness. Because of the activity, I am a better runner, athlete and person, and I desire to share those positive qualities with everyone I come into contact with. One of my goals is to get involved in the movement to bring CrossFit to kids, teaching them functional movements and positive outlets at an early age. I wish CrossFit had been around when I was a kid.
Besides a Level 1 CrossFit coach, I am also a United States Track and Field Level 1 Coach with focus on distance running. When I am not coaching or completing a WOD, I am teaching high school, coaching cross country, spending time with my three beautiful daughters and enjoying all the many incredible outdoor activities Idaho has to offer.
