Why I created the Alamo 180 CrossFit program:

I used to be a fitness instructor at a big box gym where I would have 30 or more individuals in a class. While those kinds of numbers were great for my ego, it was terrible for the individuals attending the class. Why? I couldn’t monitor form and technique, and beyond that it was impersonal. This was a huge problem, especially when looking through the quality lens.
I wanted to create a gym that offered high quality workouts in a small class setting to ensure quality instruction and maximum results. I wanted to help individuals live their best and most active life. After three years of knowing there could be a better approach, on my 40th birthday, I left that big box gym and opened a CrossFit box. My priority was to have small class sizes allowing our CrossFit certified instructors to closely monitor everyone’s form and technique. As a result, we have created an environment of service-oriented coaches, who truly care about our clientele, and clients that trust and enjoy our services. It is through this supportive community that our clients are achieving exceptional results!

Coaching Philosophy:

Fitness is a lifelong journey. It is my objective to teach individuals how to live a better and more active life, and to have fun in the process.

Utilizing a slow, steady, and form focused training that emphasizes the need of the client, I believe that anyone can see real and lasting results!
