CrossFit has been changing my life since 2010. As a CrossFitter, I enjoy the constantly varied WOD’s and I count working out with fellow Trainer and son Michael a true blessing.

Phil Metzger

I am married to my beautiful wife C.J. I am an air traffic controller by day and crossfit coach the rest of the time. Growing up I played golf and hockey. I tried the gym thing for most of my life never seeing results and found crossfit through a friend and I’ve been with crossfit fayette since dec 2012. It has gotten to the point where it is basically my second home. What draws me to crossfit is the sense of community. When everyone is doing a wod the first person done stays until the last person is done and is right there supporting them the whole way. Everyone improves every day and we are all getting better at life while becoming more fit. I am continuously trying to improve myself and learn how to teach others to move better and to help create and achieve their goals.

Holley Dalman

After being a “gym rat” for her entire adult life, she was introduced to CrossFit in 2010. After her first hero WOD, she was hooked. She loves the variety of movements Crossfit offers people, building a comprehensive athlete. Holley’s enthusiasm for Crossfit continues to grow, particularly inspiring beginners to exercise while ensuring their safety and pushing them to reach new achievable goals. She also has a passion for science driven nutrition and the way that food can fuel the body for both health and performance.

Jackie Wagner

I’m a full-time mom moonlighting as a full-time nurse practitioner with a passion for fitness, competition, and a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy encouraging others to do things they don’t believe they can, I believe in pushing yourself to your physical limits to see what lies beyond what you thought you could do! That’s what I believe CrossFit has to offer! As an adrenaline junkie always searching for the next fix, I fell in love with CrossFit in the first WOD. CrossFit offers a level of intensity, camaraderie, and competition only found where like minded people share a common goal.

Jamie Parker

20170418_064333 I grew up playing sports and being active. I have been a Health/Physical Education teacher for the last 16 years. I worked out in a traditional gym but never really saw any great results.  I was lacking motivation and drive in my workouts. I started CrossFit in 2013 and haven’t looked back since.  CrossFit Fayette provides a great atmosphere and motivation to see results. I like the challenges and comradery CrossFit provides.

Karen Grahl

unnamed I am a Level 1 Certified Crossfit Coach, a wife, mother, grandmother and retired from Delta Air Lines (November 2008). I started working out at Crossfit Fayette in January 2013 because my son urged me to give it a try. I was exercising at home but wasn’t being consistent and not seeing any type of results. Crossfit changed all that! My fitness level has improved substantially both physically and mentally and I have been able to see continuous improvement. The bonus is the camaraderie we have working out together. The main class that I coach is FitCamp which meets the needs of members who prefer an “easier” Crossfit experience. I am always striving to learn and improve my coaching skills and my goal is to help and encourage others to achieve their physical potential.

Ashley Schwab

ashley-picI am softball playing, brain balancing, cross-fitter. I grew up playing softball and was blessed with an opportunity to play all four years at the collegiate level. Being an athlete I was always in a weight room or doing some type of agility workouts. After college ended, I had zero interest in going back to a regular gym and just wanted to find something I could join that made me feel like I was apart of a team/family again. I found just that with Crossfit. I love the community aspect of Crossfit. We all push each other to reach our fitness goals and as a coach, it is awesome to watch people improve their performance and intensity levels. When I am not at the gym or the ball field, I am at work (Brain Balance) helping children reach their full potential in all aspects of life. I help families with nutritional goals as well as exercises to increase function ability.    

Johnny Ferguson

Johnny FergusonMarried to Terri Ferguson for 22 years.  I have been involved in sports my whole life, but as I got older realized I started slowing down and needed to do something about it.   I started Crossfit Jan of 2012 and never looked back.   Went from 210 pounds at the age of 40 to a solid 185 pounds 6 years later.  Now that I have been doing Crossfit I have been able to get back into sports without slowing down.  After turning my health/fitness around I decided to get my Level 1 Cert in May 2017 and started coaching to give other athletes the same experience and results I got.   Once you start you just can’t get away from the COMMUNITY that Crossfit brings.
