Aron

Aron Anderson

Owner / Coach Level 1

Introduction

I started CrossFit in 2012, caught the bug and have never looked back. I have a Kinesiology degree from Texas A&M, and have also completed the CrossFit level 1, CrossFit mobility, and USA weightlifting certification courses. My favorite WOD is Diane or anything with handstand pushups or Olympic weightlifting. My least favorite workout is anything that lasts over 10 min and has double unders.


Charlie

Charlie Odom

Coach Level 2

Introduction

After Spending 5 years in the Marines where I first started Crossfit back around 2009, I moved back to Texas from California and began personal training at Golds Gym. I have worked at another Crossfit gym since leaving Golds in 2013 and have spent many hours coaching/ personal training people/ going over nutritional assistance and helping people achieve their full potential. I am certified as a L1 and L2 Trainer, Mobility / and Crossfit Kids and I'm always hungry to go out and learn brand new things that will help me train others to be their best. I love to Olympic lift and do workouts that are a little bit out of the norm, like tire flips/ sand bad carries/ farm walks and other odd object type of training!

Misti

Misti Cate

Coach Level 2

Introduction

I was born and raised in West Texas. I was never athletic and never worked out until my mid-twenties when I realized I could no longer eat anything I wanted without putting on weight. I began to change the way I was eating and I took up running. The weight came off but I was getting bored with just running alone. I started taking fitness bootcamps and working with a personal trainer. Upon moving to Houston in 2012, I discovered CrossFit. Within a week I was hooked. A year later I completed my CF-L1 so that I could learn more about the CrossFit methodology and help others achieve their fitness goals. I still enjoy running and love any WODs that include running. My favorite CrossFit benchmark workout is Helen and my favorite Olympic lift is the Clean & Jerk.

Jessica

Jessica Shrieve

Coach Level 1

Introduction

Jessica was born and raised in Conroe, TX and she was an athlete all the way through college. Then for the next 7 years she rarely did anything active. In August 2012 she was tired of being tired and started working with a trainer. At the time she had no stamina, could not do a squat and would lay down for an hour to recover from a 30 minute session. A year later he introduced her to CrossFit and she has never looked back. She has lost 75 lbs and countless inches and her health is better than it has ever been. She loves that she can do something that pushes her everyday both mentally and physically. Less than a year into CrossFit she decided she was missing something and started competing in local competitions. She loves the competitive push you get from going against others and seeing how far you can push your body. She is excited to help others have that same feeling of accomplishment when they succeed at doing something beyond their wildest dreams. She has her CF-L1 and She is also a CrossFIt Kids Certified trainer. Her favorite WOD so far has been 14.3 with box jumps and progressively heavier deadlifts. Put a barbell in her hands and she is ready to go!
