Doug’s Story,

As I moved on to college and focused on the sport of rodeo at the collegiate and professional level, my passion for fitness grew much deeper! I knew that in order to be successful at these levels of competition I would need to be in the best physical shape possible! I worked out 4-5 times per week in a regular gym and then moved on to a local CrossFit gym that I absolutely fell in love with! I went on to become a Level Certified Trainer in 2014 and then added a Strength & Conditioning CrossFit Football certification in 2016 While competing in rodeo, I was involved in a pretty bad wreck when a horse rolled into a fence with me, fracturing my collar bone, ribs and my spine (L4,L5 &S1). I ended up having a spinal fusion and was completely debilitated for two months before I began the long road to rehabilitation.With my knowledge from coaching, I was able to do my own rehab without a physical therapist, slowly putting myself back together and eventually I looked up and saw that I was better than I had ever been – even before the accident. I began competing in CrossFit about a year after I began my rehabilitation, and worked my way up to the top 2% of the world in Competitive CrossFit physical fitness in 2017. This is one of the accomplishments I’m most proud of, and I believe it makes me a better coach because I had to learn first-hand that through consistency, patience, proper nutrition, goal setting, and the right individualized fitness programs that anything is possible when it comes to improving your health and overall wellness! I feel that my wide range of knowledge and experience allows me to adapt/use many creative methods to achieve each client’s individualized goals, whether you want to be an elite level athlete in your sport or want to be a badass at everyday life we are here for you and can help!
