CrossFit rejuvenated Josh’s life in 2012 after a few years of wondering around normal gym settings without much success. He is a former collegiate baseball player that loves the competitive environment, which fit perfectly for the world of CrossFit.
Josh loves coaching and working with people of all levels of fitness. He becomes inspired by the success of those that believe it was not there to be had. “It is great to see the high level athlete attain great achievements in competitions, but just as awesome to see the person just starting out on their journey to receive their very first pull up or complete a mile run without stopping.”

Level 1 Trainer // Special Olympics Coach for Basketball, Track, & Bowling
I have been a teacher for Dallas ISD for 19 years as an Adapted Physical Education Teacher. What I realized when I started CrossFit in August of 2014 was that the body was capable of so much more and Crossfit was going to get me in the best shape of my life. I love how CrossFit can improve your overall performance in all areas of fitness. CrossFit has turned into a passion for me and I love sharing that passion with others by motivating them. It is such a thrill to see people push themselves physically and do things they never imagined they would be able to do. And, being a part of their CrossFit journey is simply amazing!
Favorite Workout: DT and Karen
Favorite Drink: Tea
Preferred Workout music — any kind of rock and top 40
Outside Gym: Love going to Cowboy games or any kind of sporting event.
CrossFit Level 1// Gymnastic Coach
Raven was a competitive artistic gymnast for nine years, then coached in the sport for an additional two years. After starting a family, she decided to dive back into fitness in 2014, and in 2015 fitness friends introduced her to CrossFit during the open.
She shares, “CrossFit gave me an opportunity to tune into my competitive edge again. Even better, the community behind CrossFit pushed me in ways that I couldn’t do on my own, and that support system helped me tap into potential I never knew I had as an athlete. And the best part is witnessing everyone else’s excitement upon experiencing that same feeling while being a part of their support system!”
Raven is currently certified in Massage Therapy and is in pursuit to getting her license. She plans on specializing in sports massage to help athletes heal, recover, and progress in their fitness journeys. When she’s not in the CrossFit box, she’s enjoying playing at the park, watching youtube videos, and devouring ice cream with her husband and two kids.
