Thanks to Steve Rossi for this great photo of Jackie B at Regionals this year!

Today we’re welcoming a new coach onto our staff, Camille.  Camille is a former collegiate athlete and competed in track and field for Weber State.  She’s also a junior high teacher who holds a masters degree in education.  She has a great attitude, tremendous work ethic, and we’re excited to add another coach to our roster who has competed at high levels and who loves connecting with people and helping you be your best.  We’re excited that so many of our coaches were collegiate athletes:  Michaela, Camille, JB, Amy C, Jackie B, and Adrian.  Many of them have degrees in Sports Exercise science, education , or fitness related fields.  Why do we think this matters?  Because they’ve had years of coaching from both good and bad trainers and can bring a wealth of experience to your training so that WCF is the best it can be for you.  After being coached from junior high through college they’ve got a pretty good idea of what goes into a great training session and how to bring out the best in their athletes.  If you ask around you’ll notice that most of our coaches bring significant life experience to their job outside of CrossFit:  marathons, triathlons, military experience, firefighters, SWAT, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, and some have coached CrossFit longer than 90% of the boxes in Utah have been in business.  This translates to passionate people who are also highly competent doing what they love every day:  training you!
