When Caitlin was introduced to Byron, she was inevitably introduced to Olympic Weightlifting! From Olympic Lifting she learned mental toughness and the importance of technique and form with the help of Jon Joseph and Byron. CrossFit became the perfect next step into the fitness world. The most important aspect she has gained from CrossFit is confidence! It has given her not only the confidence to be successful in a workout, but to be a better daughter, sister, wife, and friend in and outside the gym. She always wants what is best for her clients, even if it is tough love, and will do what she can to help them achieve their goals.

Prior to CrossFit, my fitness and athletic experiences were limited to high school football and years of being in and out of globo gyms. Fitness had always been intimidating, and to a large nerdy guy, it was something best left to those with bulging muscles and washboard abs. It was when I finally decided to try CrossFit, this idea changed.
Nervous, uncertain, and intimidated by the name “CrossFit”, I went into the little gym downtown and tried my first WOD under the guidance of Byron and Caitlin. Despite the nerves and self-doubt, I would continue to bring myself down to the gym and workout. I learned about, and how to perform movements, and more importantly, began to realize that I was fully capable of being athletic despite my own uncertainties. Soon the anxiety began to fade and I found myself excited to go to the gym. When I as introduced to the Olympic Lifting class, my fate was sealed. I found an athletic activity that I enjoy and desire to improve in.
Two years after starting at Evviva I would end up at a CrossFit Level 1 Certification course in Portland. My hope is that I can offer to the people at Evviva the same thing Byron and Caitlin did for me when I walked in that first day, timid and without faith in myself. An opportunity for people to discover what they are actually capable of. To help push them further than they think possible without fear of judgement, rather, show them the atmosphere of support, encouragement that I was.

Prior to joining the Wolf Pack, my training was specialized at the University of Oregon where I competed as a wide receiver in football.Throughout college I was fortunate enough to develop under our strength and conditioning coach Jimmy Radcliffe. He not only taught us the fundamentals of Olympic Weightlifting and sprinting mechanics, but he showed us how discipline, humility, and the desire to excel on and off the field, are important aspects of a life. Being a part of CrossFit Evviva, I have already learned so much about myself and the awesome people that call this gym a second home. I look forward to giving back to athletes who want to get better everyday, train hard, and have fun doing it!
