Athletes of the month! Each month we typically nominate and highlight an athlete of the month.
This June we would like to take time to highlight all our wonderful coaches, most of whom are athletes themselves who relentlessly show up for class both as a coach and as an athlete consistently.
Our first Coach Highlight:
How long have you been coaching and how did you get started?
I’ve been coaching Crossfit for two years. I started coaching because I enjoy helping people.
What do you enjoy most about coaching?
What I enjoy most is watching athletes improve their quality of life outside of the gym because of the consistent hard work they put in at the gym.
What are your coaching specialities? Favorite movement to coach?
I love coaching hypertrophy training, gymnastic movements, and developing mental toughness for athletes. My favorite movement to coach is the pull-up.
What do you love about coaching at CrossFit Lincoln?
My favorite thing about coaching at CrossFit Lincoln is that I get be a vehicle of information for people that are hungry and dedicated to improve their lives.
What do you do outside of the gym? hobbies/work etc..
I’m a coach by day and a Police Officer at LPD by night. When I’m not working you can find me working out, playing with my dog, or traveling with my girlfriend, Maddy.
Fun Fact or something you would want an athlete to know about you but doesn’t fit the other questions?
I have physical conditions called thoracic kyphosis and scoliosis (Different curatives in my spine). Growing up, I avoided weightlifting movements and even dropped out of certain sports because of the lower back pain However, since joining CrossFit in 2016 I have significantly improved my condition and quality of life. Strength training is for everyone.
Words to potential athletes or newer athletes:
Advice – You might never feel “ready enough” to join CrossFit. The best time to start was yesterday, next best time is now.
“There has been countless times where athletes have mentioned what a great role model Logan has been in class when he workouts with them as a fellow athlete. His intensity for workouts matches that of his intensity towards helping others and we are very thankful to have him in our community.” -Coach Emily, GM-
If you see Logan in the gym be sure to give a fist bump and tell him thank you for coaching. If you are looking to improve hypertrophy training, gymnastic movements, or mental toughness, Logan would be happy to set up a personal training session with you!
