I already firmly believe we have the best coaching staff of any CrossFit gym that I know of. Our crew not only can talk the talk, they can walk the walk, whether it is on the CrossFit competition floor, golf course, or rugby pitch!
I'm excited to announce though that our team has just gotten even stronger with the addition of two very talented people - Mike Gotuaco and Sara Vis.

"Mike G" as he is known around the gym comes from a long background of athletics, including freestyle snowboarding at an extremely high level. He really turned up his CrossFit focus last year and was one of our strongest athletes in the Open 2017. Add to that his professional persona of Dr. Michael Gotuaco, D.C. (Chiropractic) and you have a pretty accomplished individual. Mike will bring his unique perspective of healthcare and knowledge of the human body to his coaching and we're super excited about the possibilities!
Sara is definitely at home on the platform!
Sara Vis is an athlete known for impeccable form on both olympic lifting and gymnastics skills. With a background of coaching both weightlifting focused classes and CrossFit, Sara will help you refine your movement patterns with her confident and accurate cues. Adding to her coaching expertise, Sara is pursuing her Registered Massage Therapist designation, furthering her understanding of the human body and interactions with different forms of therapy and training.
These two will be integrated into coaching over the next while, as they shadow existing coaches, learn our systems and procedures, and begin to know you guys a bit better. Join me in welcoming them to our coaching team and helping them get fully integrated into their new roles!
