For most of my life, I have always thought that I have been in good shape. I was a swimmer throughout high school and college. I spent countless hours staring at the line at the bottom of the swimming pool. When I ‘retired’ from swimming in March 2010, I absolutely loathed the thought of exercise. I hated running. I am embarrassingly uncoordinated, and I cannot play team sports. So I decided that I was just going to stop exercising completely… That didn’t work out so well for me. By the time I graduated from college in May 2012, I was weighing in around 190 pounds and a size 14. What had I done to myself?! Something had to change. I spent the following summer killing myself on a treadmill and attending group exercise classes at my local YMCA. I slowly saw some progress, but it was minimal.
As I prepared to move my life from Pennsylvania to Texas in August 2012, I started to research gyms in the area. I came across Crossfit Beaumont during one of my Google searches; I had never heard of crossfit before. I looked around the website, read the testimonials, and saw that there were free classes on Saturdays. I figured that I had nothing to lose – it was free and I never had to go back if I didn’t like it. So I went on a Saturday, and I was hooked!
Weeks turned into months, and the results were dramatic! I remember being amazed by the women doing unassisted pull-ups, squatting heavy weight, and doing the olympic lifts. I wanted to be like them. I’ll never forget the day that Kara took me out to the grass behind the old gym and tried to teach me handstands – I was awful. As time went by, I started to decrease the pull-up bands that I used. I could do a few push-ups from my toes. I was squatting more weight than I ever though possible. It was amazing! Then, Neal told me that I should sign up for a scaled competition in Houston. I thought he was crazy! I had just learned how to do kipping pull-ups and had only been doing Crossfit for a few months. But I signed up, competed, and actually won the scaled division! The feeling was incredible. I had finally found a passion in a new sport.
Since then I have competed in numerous Crossfit competitions all over Texas, never placing lower than the top 5. Competing in Crossfit has filled the void that swimming left behind. I completed my Level 1 Trainer Certification last summer so that I could spread my passion for Crossfit to others. Crossfit has given me more than I could ever have imagined. I am in the best shape of my life; I now weigh 150 pounds and wear a size 4. I am constantly proving to myself that I can push myself harder and farther than I previously thought. Crossfit has given me not only incredible fitness, but it has also given me incredible friends and a supportive community. CFB and CFMC have made Texas feel like home, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Thank you Neal, Kara, all the coaches at CFB and CFMC, and all the members for being so motivating, encouraging, and inspiring. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for your knowledge and support!

” Growing up, I was always on the move. I loved playing baseball, basketball, and football with friends. I loved the comradery we built over years of continuously rooting each other on. I especially loved the competition that forced us all to grow and improve. As I have begun my journey to becoming a coach at CrossFit Beaumont, I’ve realized the reasons I enjoy CrossFit so much are the very same reasons I loved athletics in my younger years. I’ve formed amazing friendships with the people I see in class every day. There is an awesome sense of competition that pushes me to do my absolute best in each workout. The benefits of the CrossFit methodology are great, but what makes CrossFit special is its unparalleled culture. I’m proud to be a part of the unbelievable team at CFB. I’ve seen the dedication and care that our coaches pour into their classes and athletes first hand. It is my goal to do the same for each person I get the opportunity to coach. “
I started at CFB almost 8 months ago. I will say JJ thoroughly disappointed me in promoting the atmosphere and the fun in suffering I have experienced. At least Neal would tell me to try it out from time to time. I am husband to Heather of 9 wonderful years, and father of crazy, wild, and awesome kiddos Bryson (3) and Bailey (5). Through the years since college, I really have just got into that sedentary life style that I always knew I needed to get out of. I needed it for my mental health as much as for my physical health. I have always done a month here and a couple months there at these globo gyms in town, just to never hang on and not find anything that got my competitive juices going. I have found that in life you will always find time for things that you enjoy and things that are important to you. And these gyms were never anything I enjoyed or became a priority. I now look at my schedule every week and see what classes I can make because CFB checks those enjoyment and important boxes. Since joining CFB, the fellowship and encouragement from members/coaches (now many friends) have been things that stuck out to me. Always someone there encouraging when you feel like you don’t have that last rep or those last 10 calories on those horrible assault bikes. Oh and I’ve also never been this fit in my life and look forward to the progress I know is still in front of me. Thank you to all friends and coaches! Can’t wait to get another pair of shoes……….
I’ve been around sports my entire life. I played the big three growing up: baseball, basketball, and football and I continued to play baseball into college for five (5) years. I’ve seen and met all types of coaches and I’ve learned many lessons from them all. Coaching and teaching have always been passions of mine. Helping others set goals, seeing their journey, and helping them achieve those goals is something that really drives me. Crossfit has let me continue these competitive and coaching passions on a daily basis. We have great coaches at CFB that bring their own flair and styles which let myself and members gain a wealth of knowledge to continue to set and achieve goals.
I have always been an athlete, from swimming, volleyball, basketball, softball and powerlifting, but college changed a lot of that for me. As I moved to Beaumont in 2014, I started getting into a little routine at a local gym, but it wasn’t feeding my need, just checking off a task on the to-do list. I hadn’t touched a barbell in what seemed like ages and lost sight of my self-confidence. All of that changed when I came to Crossfit Beaumont. It’s funny, reminiscing about that first day you walked in, those feelings and that slight anxiety, but it changed my life. The workouts were like nothing I’ve been through before, the motivation from other athletes, who were complete strangers then, was a new concept all together and the fact that we were doing it all together really changed the dynamic of working out for me.
Since joining, I have become a Crossfit Level 1 Coach, a Certified Personal Trainer and a USAWeightlifting Coach. I have crushed goals and made new ones, I’ve learned to set my pride and ego aside and become coachable and I wouldn’t have been able to do any of it without the people I surround myself with at our gym. The passion, dedication and fun put into what we do here takes ‘just working out’ to a whole new level and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
Growing up I always wanted to be a ballerina! I stayed active in dance and in swimming throughout the years. In 2012 post college I needed some structure in my workouts and habits. Oh my did I fall hard for Crossfit! Since joining Crossfit I have found a balance with my workouts and nutrition that I desired. As a coach, I love bringing other people into the wonderful community we have here at CFB.
CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting Coach I have always had a passion for sports and fitness and love to compete no matter what. I thought myself in pretty good shape until trying my first CrossFit workout, Fight Gone Bad. Afterwards I was left on the floor unable to move wondering what the hell had just happened to me. I was hooked. Since starting I’ve gotten stronger, faster, and gained more endurance than I thought possible. CrossFit Beaumont is my dream come true of bringing a new level of training to everyone willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears to attain elite fitness.CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting Coach I have always had a passion for sports and fitness and love to compete no matter what.

My whole life I’ve been involved with cheerleading, gymnastics, track, the whole nine yards; so when I stepped into my first CrossFit class as a collegiate cheerleader in January 2011 I was expecting it to be just another day at the gym and no big deal. Wow, was I mistaken! The first fifteen minutes of class I was sweating more and working harder than I ever had in a gym. I knew that I had found my new sport, CrossFit. The more I came the stronger I got, the faster I moved the more I was hooked. I love that the hard work we put in constantly reaps results and that no matter what you’re doing there’s someone there pushing you or dying along side with you. Training others has been the biggest blessing and I love seeing our community at CrossFit Beaumont thrive!
