Meet the staff
Brandon grew up playing sports and doing competitions most of his life. He is a veteran currently serving in the Air Force, and a family man. Brandon started CrossFit in 2010 and began coaching clients in 2011. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and is currently a CF-L2 Trainer. Him and his wife Elyse have worked with a wide-array of clients, both military and civilian, including two clients from the ABC Family TV Show "Extreme Weight-loss" with Chris and Heidi Powell.
Over the years doing CrossFit, Brandon has experimented with the "Paleo" and "Zone" diets. While there was no question that these diets worked for fat-loss, they were not conducive to being able to perform at peak performance. At best, Brandon was able to go from 220lbs (23% body fat) to 200lbs (12% body fat) while on the Paleo Diet.
With tracking macronutrients, Brandon was able to achieve a much leaner body composition, retain all lean muscle mass and strength, and was shown in a short amount of time what results can come with the right macronutrient prescription.
Over the years, Brandon has developed and cultivated his passion for training, coaching, and helping others achieve their fitness goals. He enjoys anything involving outdoor sports and spending time with his family. He prides himself in helping others with fitness because it brings out the best in people. Brandon's favorite movie is Deadpool and mostly anything Disney. As for a cheat meal, Brandon always loves a good doughnut, a good beer, and pizza on the weekends. It's all about moderation!
Elyse has been actively doing CrossFit since of March 2012. She received her CF Level 1 in May 2013 and completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science in 2015. Since then, Elyse has enjoyed helping others, sharing her knowledge of fitness and nutrition, as well as personal training clients. In 2013, Elyse was selected to augment Chris and Heidi Powell and train two clients in the ABC Show, Extreme Weightloss. She also has an extensive background with swimming as well as teaching and coaching it.
Growing up, Elyse played a wide array of sports with an extensive background in swimming and basketball. Since starting CrossFit and weightlifting, she has found a true passion for health/fitness. Elyse has experimented with the "Paleo" and "Zone" diets as well, but soon realized the benefits would not be long term. Elyse has exceptional experience in providing great meal plans that are macro balanced in order to achieve maximum performance. Elyse stands by the statement that, "all people are human and we just need to find what works for each of us."
Together, Brandon and Elyse have committed to sharing their experience and knowledge to help others achieve their personal goals.
