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 competitive distance runner in my youth and then an avid yoga practitioner. I love yoga, but decided I needed something more vigorous, so I took Krav Maga classes (self-defense fighting) for several years. 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. Now in my mid-50’s, I’m stronger than when I was in my 20’s! I’m a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and hold specialty certificates in Endurance, Mobility, and Rowing. I’m especially passionate about the Concept2 indoor rowing machine and love to teach people how to be more effective on it. I’m also a lightweight backpacking enthusiast and have been enjoying long, grueling solo trips the last few summers in the Eagle Cap Wilderness and on the Pacific Crest Trail. If you want to get in shape before you hit the trail, I’d love to help!
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.
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.
Mike - I started CrossFit about in 2017 due to Ian and Melody dragging me into the Station and I loved it right from the beginning. Movement and activity is important to me and having a community of people to suffer with, in a good way, was exactly what I wanted. I took the Level 1 certification course in August 2018 and started coaching in January 2019. I love seeing how much people change and improve in all aspects of life through CrossFit and wanted to be able to help them set and meet goals and learn new skills. When outside the gym, I generally spend my time reading, drinking coffee, and doing just about anything that involves the outdoors and friends.
Gary - I discovered CrossFit in 2012 after my son had trained with Tony and Trina for a couple years, and I saw how much he enjoyed CrossFit. The moment I started, I knew this was the best way to improve my fitness and overall health, and most importantly, ENJOY improving my fitness. Aside from the competitive itch CrossFit scratches, it has brought me many new friends and experiences. The atmosphere that is promoted and experienced at CrossFit Station has kept me coming back day after day and inspired me to obtain my L1 certification in 2017. Outside of CrossFit I enjoy fishing, hunting, and have a small side hobby making the best beef jerky, period.
Rachel- I am a mom and entrepreneur. I danced for 10 years and taught group classes for three of those years which lead to dancing professionally. As I grew older I realized I missed dance and decided to teach adult dance classes, where I learned and taught Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, and Merenge along with my classical upbringing. A friend told me about CrossFit and me, being a sucker for groups, I was in. CrossFit brought so much mental healing for me when I needed it most. I decided to open my own gym to bring that healing to others. Over the years I have learned I liked being with people and helping athletes reach their goals and my passion is coaching. I am a CrossFit Level 2 Coach and love seeing someone hit a personal record and totally shock themselves. I’ve worked with a wide range of athletes and helped them all reach their goals. We can always get better. Our circumstances might change but there is never a circumstance that will keep us from working toward health and being surrounded by people who can help us through.
