THE CROSSFIT LITTLE CREEK TEAM
“I absolutely adore watching the smiles on people’s faces as they report the unbelievable changes that have occurred in their marriages, at their jobs, and even just in their own confidence and happiness as a direct result of CrossFit and the gym community we have built at CrossFit Little Creek.”
For Starr, trying CrossFit took a little bit of convincing by her husband, Corey, and some good friends. She had been an avid runner who trained for and raced a few marathons and numerous shorter distances, but with CrossFit, she lost 30 pounds and improved her distance running paces with functional fitness. The personal changes and positive impact that Starr has experienced is something she realized she wanted to share with others, to help them become the best versions of themselves in a fun and enjoyable way. As a mother of 5, she is dedicated to sustaining her ability to keep up with her busy family and helping others do the same.
What I love most about coaching is “…seeing the successful completion of once-unimaginable feats, and the realization of their goals and dreams.”
Corey was introduced to CrossFit in 2006 through his military training. It allowed him to stay in top condition throughout his military career, and today he uses his training and experience to help people improve the quality of their lives by teaching healthy lifestyle choices, providing fun, effective workouts, and fostering a supportive, motivating community.
“My favorite part of coaching is seeing the results, I truly enjoy how much I can affect everyone’s everyday quality of life with fitness.”
A lifelong wrestler and highly-experienced coach, Brandon found CrossFit while searching for conditioning drills for his wrestlers. He fell in love with the family atmosphere and the people that chose to work hard daily to improve their lives. Like a true athlete, Brandon enjoys competing and testing his fitness outside of the gym. He is passionate about fitness, wrestling, flag football, his family, and faith.
“I love the intensity of our athletes, and I enjoy sharing the enthusiasm I have for the CrossFit methodology. I love to see them “get it,” soak it up, and come back for more, leaner, faster, stronger, and healthier each day. The look on an athlete’s face as they finish a WOD they never even thought they could start is priceless to me.”
For Robin, CrossFit is her passion, her hobby, her guilty pleasure, and her lifestyle. Overweight and out of shape, she tried home programs to lose weight, but she knew she wasn’t anywhere close to being as fit as the CrossFitters she met at her first class. She instantly connected with the community and coaches and the accessibility of the program to people of all fitness levels. Over the course of 3 years, she lost 60 pounds and felt the best she had ever had in her life, even through her military career. Today, she strives to help others on their journey towards a healthier lifestyle, especially those on a weight loss journey. Robin is beyond excited when people hit a new milestone, no matter how small.
“My love for coaching is driven by the feeling I get seeing the success of my athletes, creating lasting relationships, and being able to share my knowledge.”
