Our Awesome Coaches

Jeff Crawford

Owner

Head Coach and Owner Jeff Crawford specializes in coaching weightlifting. He loves teaching and refining technique in order to make athletes as proficient as possible. Freedom is his motivator. ” I like watching athletes attain true freedom. I believe real freedom comes from having no physical confines. Being free to express yourself, explore your environment and engage in activities with no limits,” he says.

Jeff discovered CrossFit in 2005 while serving in the Marine Corps. He found that it was the perfect fit for preparing him for the rigors of deployment and the demands of military life. Today, he still believes in the CrossFit methodology whole-heartedly and wants to share his knowledge and experience with other athletes.

Julia Glotz

Coach

Competitive Weightlifter and Personal Trainer Julia Glotz is passionate about training in general, from gymnastics to weightlifting. She loves anything with a heavy barbell and is ranked in the Top 20 in the United States for Olympic Weightlifting.

According to Julia, the best part of being a coach is helping someone that has worked hard to achieve something they never thought possible. “That look of achievement and the confidence that radiates off them, that is what I live for,” she says.

Steve Clegg

Coach

Mr. Little Guy Steve Clegg does not believe in specializing, preferring instead to be well-rounded in most things. But one thing he is passionate about is pursuing excellence and pushing people further than they think they can go. “Getting people pumped up to finish their workout is so rewarding,” he says. “Seeing people smile after they finish a hard workout just inspires me to push a little harder in my workouts.”

Steve has always enjoyed working out. He ran Cross Country in high school and decided to give CrossFit a try when he saw the whole community come together and cheer on people doing “what looked like crazy movements” at a CrossFit event. He enjoys the hard work and appreciates the grind. “It has become a way of life for me,” he says.

Jenny Prasad

Coach

Jenny Prasad loves strict movements, like strict pull-ups, dips, and chest to bars, but her favorite work out is weighted dips. She also loves working with people to break them out of their shells to become comfortable with the uncomfortable. “A huge thing that stuck out to me about CrossFit is that both members and coaches were always so willing to help. Whether it be answering the 40th question I have that day, giving me cues in gymnastics, or simply cheering me on, I always know my fellow coaches are there for me. I want to be that person for the members I have the privilege of coaching,” she says.

Even though her nickname is Pouty McPout Pout, Jenny is a happy person. She loves working towards her goals and making her teammates proud.

Chris Page

Coach

Chris Page is passionate about being a great coach and teammate both at the gym and on the soccer field. He’s played sports most of his life and is currently playing collegiate soccer at Florida Institute of Technology.

Chris may have Adrenal Insufficiency which is an auto immune disorder but that isn’t holding him back from living his life to the fullest! His favorite quote is from the movie We Bought A Zoo: “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” One of his favorite parts about being a coach is seeing how motivated people are in the gym. “That gives me energy and that’s what it’s all about,” he says.

April Kavanaugh

Coach

April Kavanaugh found Crossfit not sure what she was looking for, but found endless opportunities with it. Not being a natural athlete she has a strong understanding of the struggles and riveting successes Crossfit provides. "I get what it's like to not be good at most things and I love the fact this is a safe space to accept that and improve every day. I try to bring that into my coaching, that we're all searching for progress not perfection."

The community connection and mental strength is especially appealing to April. She believe the CrossFit experience doesn't end when we leave the gym, but it's a mindset of success we carry throughout our day.
