Coach Phil

Coach profile Testimonials NMM BAFD 5

This guy! The owner and creator of this place the rest of us call home, and the place we hope others will seek when they need a positive environment filled with hardworking people who value relationships. 

“I met Phil 11 years ago and was terrified of him and at the same time in complete awe of his abilities as an athlete. Thankfully I stuck around and got to know what an incredible coach he is as he helped me progress an athlete. I got to know what an incredible leader, mentor and human he is by working with him on the coaches leadership team, side by side as the General manager and being around him and his family. He leads with a servants heart and has truly impacted so many of us through our fitness with CrossFit Lincoln. Thank you!”
