    Coach

    What do you specialize in…..motivation and encouragement….

    What are you passionate about….Fitness.  I love pushing myself and others to be able to live full and healthy lives outside the gym.  And I love the outdoors especially fishing. Nothing beats being on the water on a spring morning. Best feeling ever. The rest of the world just fades away.

    What do you love most about coaching your members….Seeing their growth over time both mentally and physically. Seeing the confidence in being able to complete a workout or shove a heavy barbell overhead is something you can’t measure. That is something that people walk out of the gym with everyday.  And being a part of that is such a blessing and a very gracious aspect of coaching.  They take it back into the world and it carries over to the other aspects of their life. It’s truly amazing.

    What is your athletic background….I played 3 years of HS basketball back in Oklahoma as well as 2 years of baseball. I loved being involved in competitive sports.

    How did you end up being a Crossfit coach…..I came to the gym straight from a globo gym with a friend who had asked several times before my first visit.  After several attempts to get me in the door, I finally agreed I’d give it a shot. I had always been against Crossfit. Though I’d get hurt like most people probably do but I was hooked as soon as I walked in. The barbells clanging, the loud music and all the excitement on the members faces was something that I had never experienced before. It was the encouragement that was offered from everyone in class to keep pushing and finish the workout. I’ve been back ever since.  I love learning the aspects of fitness and movement and always had a passion to want to coach. This was a perfect fit for me.  Everything I’ve ever wanted under one roof.
    What’s your favorite quote…”You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you”  John Wooden.

    Certifications:

    • SpartanFitness 360 Certified Coach
  • Amanda Henry

    Coach

    Mental toughness, endurance, personal training
    Witnessing and influencing people become healthy and happy through my approach to wellness called the trifecta of wellness where fitness is pursued in three key aspects (mind, body and spirit).
    Diversity- all age groups, abilities, and levels of athlete from brand new to being active at all to the uber CrossFitters our Spartans show up and show out and that makes me proud to be a Spartan.
    I have been an athlete all my life though I haven’t always looked  like one. Life can wear you down sometime but you have a choice to make so I took my life back. A runner at heart, I have run numerous marathons and specialty races (mud runs, functional fitness run, mud run, and Spartan races), half marathons, 10ks, 5ks,  and even an ultra (yes, I’m that kind of crazy).  Placing in the top 10% with podium finishes in multiple events.
    It was a natural fit. I have coached cross country, soccer, cheerleading, and rugby in the past.  Leading athletes is what I love. A lifestyle of activity and a drive for excellence led me to CrossFit and specifically Spartan 360.
    Make it a great day or NOT, the choice is yours!
    Yes, what you see is really what you get. Expect me to be goofy at times and hard at times. Expect me to say things sometimes that sounded great in my head but came out all wrong.  Just ask me to clarify, it’s nothing more than me thinking faster than I get the words out.  Final thing, Expect me to expect the best from you and we will get along great!
