What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


CrossFit has allowed me the opportunity to share my passion for health and fitness with others. It has provided me with an avenue to meet new people and genuinely help them with aspects of their life that are tangible and rewarding. I have come to meet new people from all walks of life and have developed many great relationships from them. I have always been a service-oriented soul and my profession in Law Enforcement has allowed me to create a life out of it. However in law enforcement, the efforts of our work are rarely immediately recognized. You just have to have faith you are helping people in some way, somehow. CrossFit allows me to see the fruits of my efforts up front and in real time with real people.




What does being a coach mean to you?


I get to be a source of trust, knowledge, motivation, and change for those who may need exactly that in their life. I get the privilege to show someone they can be more than what their mind believes, what their life has told them, what they have told themselves.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


That it isn't defined by others nor is it completely definable. The beauty of life is the capacity for change and evolution. "Building your best life" shouldn't be a static idea because goals and aspirations will change as we accomplish and conquer ones of the past. A quote I heard a long time ago that has stuck with me helps to illustrate my point - "Yesterday's ceiling can be today's floor."

What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


The relationships that have developed as a result of CrossFit has been an added bonus to living a healthier life. The community of people we have is second to none.




What does being a coach mean to you?


To me a coach is person who you trust with your best interest in mind. Being a coach is an incredible responsibility knowing that every class the athletes are putting their trust in you to help them live their best lives.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


Building your best life incorporates your physical health, mental health and building healthy relationships. Conversations in the gym tend to cover one of those three aspects of life.

What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


I have spent my career dispensing medications to people that, in many cases, have not put their own health and wellness first. It can be frustrating to be on this side of what I call "sick care". I don't want to see you in my pharmacy. I want to see you at the gym. I belive that our current healthcare system is broken. If we don't redefine what healthcare looks like and find a way to keep people WELL rather than just treating people who are SICK we will never see a change. I used to simply be frustrated by this problem -- now I see a very elegant solution through CrossFit. I want the story of my life to be that I help people eliminate medications from their lives rather than always just dispensing more and more to them.




What does being a coach mean to you?


I get to help people love and accept themselves no matter where they are on their journey. I get to teach people to move well, so they can keep doing the things they love outside of the gym even as they enter retirement and beyond. I get to hear about their kids, their grandkids, their friends, and their jobs. I get to hug them on the happiest of days and hug them on their worst days. Being a Coach means leading by example. I take my own health very seriously. I will never ask my athletes to do something I haven't committed to myself.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


I love talking to people about nutrition. As a Pharmacist, I spent years learning how the body works and how we can use medications to treat illness. I wish more people viewed FOOD as MEDICINE. Let's be honest...we eat food every single day. Why aren't we more concerned about the side effects of the food we are eating? According to CrossFit, Nutrition is the base of the pyramid. THE BASE. If someone told me that for the rest of my life I could either 1. Eat healthy OR 2. Exercise but not both... I would, HANDS DOWN, choose good nutrition. This is an area I hope to grow at Torsion in the future.

EVAN PALMER

COACH

What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


CrossFit has created a community for me that extends far beyond the confines of the gym. It is much more than just a physical fitness program. If it only provided fitness then I would be just as happy working out by myself, but that is not the case. Over the years the people I have met have become close to me and many like my extended family.




What does being a coach mean to you?


Being a coach means I am invested in the health and wellness of not only myself but everyone within the gym and my community. Success is not always a feat of physical strength or physical changes, nor is it only measured in emotional or mental victories or development. My hope as a coach is to others to achieve both of these types of growth and development and to be there if anybody needs me. I take it upon myself to stay passionate about coaching and the community I am a part of. If I ever find myself unwilling or reluctant to learn and develop as a coach and a member of my community then I will know that I am no longer providing the service, effort and sincerity that is required to help people build their best lives.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


Building your best life does not have to be a linear journey. There are moments of up and down, but I am able to realize and reflect on the fact I am moving in the right direction. Life will not always be perfect and it takes sincere effort to make changes, but it is worth it for myself as well as all the people I am connected with to strive to build my best life. I have plenty of flaws and deficiencies as a person and an athlete, but I hope to act in a way which can elicit "positive" changes for myself and others. I have come a long way, and that allows for plenty of hope that I have a long way left to go. At the end of the day it is what it sounds like, it is building towards something consistently with the help of the right people.

COACH

What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


It has provided an additional and positive outlet to deal with the stress of our everyday lives while building a greater sense of self-esteem among each other. It shows you that you can be a part of something that is better than just the individual accolades. You can be a part of something where you get positive support from your peers within a family oriented enviroment.




What does being a coach mean to you?


Being a coach gives me the oppurtunity to help others better their lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It allows people to gain confidence in all aspects of life and being a part of that is special.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


The journey, the ups and downs that came with it. The personal experiences I've endured and the shortcomings that had to be overcome, I enjoy sharing my story so that others could learn from my mistakes and know that you can overcome your challenges when you put your mind to it.

What is the biggest impact CrossFit has had on the story of your life?


The part of CrossFit that has influenced me the most is that it teaches you how to work through adversity while under duress. This "adversity" we face may be at home, at work, on a field, in a class room or whatever applies to our athletes lives. As an ICU nurse, I have to always be thinking a step ahead for the patients I care for and I feel that Cross Fit has enabled me to be able to do that while also being under extreme pressure of caring for very sick patients whom often times have sustained a life changing injury. The workouts we endure and push through, to squeeze out that extra rep or extra pound during a lift, has taught me that I am able to adapt and overcome any situation I encounter inside and outside of the gym.




What does being a coach mean to you?


Being a Coach means that I have the abilty to make a change or postivie influence on someones life each day. Not just while the athlete is completing a workout but before and after that as well. Getting to know each athlete on a personal level and ensuring that I am caring for them on that personal level is just as important to me as getting to know them as an athlete.




What is the aspect of building your best life that you most enjoy talking to people about?


The thing I love most about discussing this is that it can literally apply to anything that you are doing! Maybe you are trying to go back to school, find a better job, be a better person, whatever you want to apply this to, you can. That is the beauty of "building your best life". This is not something that is done just in the gym, but it applies to any aspect of life you want it to be apart of!
