I love the ah-ha moment, when something you’ve said, done, or helped with clicks, your athletes do something they didn’t think they could ever do, or were ever capable of doing. Seeing people change every day for the better, and knowing I had a small part in that, is very rewarding.

Life outside the gym? Is there one? Kidding. When I’m not at the gym, my focus is home and family. I’m a mom and wife. I’ve been married 12 years to my best friend, Jake, and we have 3 kids. CrossFit has changed everything about how I live life outside of the gym; my family and lifestyle are better because of it. I also spend as much time as I possibly can learning and educating myself to be the best coach and athlete that I can.

If you know me, you know everything – I’m an open book. I have no filter. I love hard and give 100% to anyone in my life. I hold nothing back. What you see is what you get!

My favorite thing about coaching are the small goals I see accomplished all the time. From the first successful snatch to the first pull-up, those moments highlight my career and stand out most amongst the crowd.

When I’m not coaching/training, which isn’t often, I enjoy fabricating something in the garage or being outdoors. Cruising on the bike, going for a walk with my kids, making a shelf or tabletop, then cooking a gourmet dinner for my family isn’t an abnormal day for me.

Some people may not know that I was a golf pro, not to be confused with a pro golfer, before I was a coach. I’ve taught someone how to do something for as long as I can remember.

I love being a coach because I get to help athletes understand and achieve their goals through hard work, dedication, and consistency.  When I’m coaching I want athletes to understand the reason behind what we do in CrossFit, I want them to understand “the why”.  I believe that is the best way to elicit positive health, fitness, and life change through the sport of CrossFit.  Finding different means of achieving these goals and seeing the athlete succeed is what makes it all worth my time.  Watching beginners and experienced CrossFit athletes surpass milestones gives me drive to not only continue coaching them through their journey, but to improve my own fitness as well.  The athletes I coach inspire me to be better at everything I do in life and working with such talented coaches as we have at CFO also drives me to be better every time I take responsibility for a class.  The way our staff works together to achieve goals for our athletes is what makes this such an awesome place to work.  I love being a part of this team because we all work with the same focus and want to achieve the highest results out of our athletes, it really is an inspirational team to work with.

Outside the gym family comes first for me so I enjoy spending time with my wife (Kids CF Coach Annalee), my children Hunter and Alexandra, and the rest of my family as often as possible.  We spend our time playing outside, going on trips, camping, and staying active.  I also enjoy running and participating in obstacle course races.  I’ve completed several Ragnar Races in Standard and Ultra format, all varieties of Spartan Races, Tough Mudder, and I’m a Triathlete in training!  I work very hard for my fitness inside the gym and I really enjoy making use it in as many different sports as possible.

One little known fact about me is Public Speaking is one of my biggest fears!  I’ve never liked being the center of attention and have always been terrified of speaking in front of a crowd.  Luckily being a coach responsible for running CrossFit classes is helping me overcome that fear!

My favorite part about being a CrossFit coach is the relationships that are built within the gym. CrossFit brings people from all different walks of life together who share the same passion and determination. The community is what makes me love CrossFit more and more everyday.

When I am not coaching I try and spend as much time with my fiancé, friends, family, and two dogs!

Something you may not know about me is that I am obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I have seen every single episode... twice!

BRYANT WOODY

My name is Bryant Woody, but most people call me Coach Woody. I love leading a team of motivated individuals through challenging workouts and coaching each member to reach new performance levels. Most of all, I love celebrating my athletes successes. That moment when someone reaches their goal is priceless.

Outside the gym, I spend my time with my beautiful fiancée and our two dogs. We are currently planning our wedding which will happen in 2017. I’m also working towards my Bachelor’s degree, at Grand Canyon University, while working my full time job. I should have that completed by June 2018.

People outside the gym probably wouldn’t know that my life’s goal has been to perform a handstand walk. I’m proud to say that with the help of CrossFit Obsession, I accomplished that goal in September 2016.

Coaching has brought me a whole new love of CrossFit! I love to help others and see them push themselves to be stronger and faster! Seeing athletes do things they never thought possible. People amaze me, our bodies are capable of amazing things, and CrossFit shows us that.

Outside of CrossFit, I am a mommy of two crazy kids. I also am a part time hairstylist, so not only do I get to help make people strong, I get to make people beautiful!

I’m from Wyoming, was raised riding horses and shooting guns! I also suck at sports.

My favorite part of the coaching is to watch the kids’ confidence grow while they get stronger and faster each class. Building a relationship and a fun environment during classes is very important to me. I like to hear about their goals for the gym and outside the gym.  

When I am not at the gym? I am a wife and mom. I am married to Coach Brandon and we have two children; Hunter and Alexandra. My favorite thing to do with my family is hang out and play games, dance (with my kids) and go on trips up to Prescott. I am also a third-grade teacher at Centennial Elementary School in the Higley Unified School District. I absolutely love working with children. If I am not at home with my children or working at school, you can probably find me at a nail salon getting a pedicure.

Something you may not know about me…I am from a small town called Portageville in Upstate New York. I moved to Arizona when I was 19 with two suitcases and only knowing one person here!
